This database, AS-ALPS (Alternative Splicing-induced ALteration of Protein Structure), is aimed at providing useful information to analyze effect of AS on protein interaction and network through alteration of protein structure.
In AS-ALPS, regions of amino acid sequences changed by AS (AS regions) which are detected in human and mouse transcript sequences in H-InvDB, FANTOM and RefSeq, are linked to information extracted from PDB about residues forming hydrophobic cores and inter-molecular interaction sites. This makes it possible to directly infer whether protein structure and/or interaction are affected by each AS event. In addition, AS-ALPS provides links to a protein network database KEGG, making it easy to know which network and which node in the network can be influenced by AS.
