About the database

Reference: Mizuguchi K, Deane CM, Blundell TL, Overington JP. (1998) HOMSTRAD: a database of protein structure alignments for homologous families. Protein Science 7:2469-2471.

HOMSTRAD (HOMologous STRucture Alignment Database) is a curated database of structure-based alignments for homologous protein families. All known protein structure are clustered into homologous families (i.e., common ancestry), and the sequences of representative members of each family are aligned on the basis of their 3D structures using the programs MNYFIT, STAMP and COMPARER. These structure-based alignments are annotated with JOY and examined individually.

The database provides annotated structural alignments in various formats, superimposed structures, links to other databases and the alignment and searching interface to the program FUGUE. See the following documents for further details.
