A repository of information relative to the nomenclature of enzymes. It is primarily based on the recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and it describes each type of characterized enzyme for which an EC (Enzyme Commission) number has been provided. These include * EC number * Recommended name * Alternative names (if any) * Catalytic activity * Cofactors (if any) * Pointers to the Swiss-Prot protein sequence entry(ies) that correspond to the enzyme (if any) * Pointers to human disease(s) associated with a deficiency of the enzyme (if any) We believe that the ENZYME database can be useful to anybody working with enzymes and that it can be of help in the development of computer programs involved with the manipulation of metabolic pathways. Available services include downloading ENZYME by FTP as well as report forms for a new ENZYME entry or for an error/update in an existing entry.

    The ENZYME database is a repository of information related to the nomenclature of enzymes. In recent years it has became an indispensable resource for the development of metabolic databases. The current version contains information on 3705 enzymes. It is available through the ExPASy WWW server (http://www.expasy.ch/enzyme/ ).
