GenProtEC offers information on E. coli K-12 gene products, gathered from both earlier andcurrent literature, from analysis of sequence similarities, from analysis of biochemical and structural protein families, and from identification of gene fusions of independent functions. In addition, members of paralogous families are identified. New types of data are being incorporated, and the site is temporarily unavailable.
