BRENDA enzyme information system:
BRENDA enzyme information system: BRENDA (BRaunschweig ENzyme DAtabase), one of the most comprehensive enzyme repositories (www.brenda-enzymes.org) BRENDA is an electronic information resource that comprises molecular and biochemical information on enzymes that have been classified by the IUBMB. Every classified enzyme is characterized with respect to its catalyzed biochemical reaction. Kinetic properties of the corresponding reactants; i.e., substrates and products are described in detail. BRENDA provides a web-based user interface that allows a convenient and sophisticated access to the data. BRENDA contains enzyme-specific data manually extracted from primary scientific literature and additional data derived from automatic information retrieval methods such as text mining. A major update of the data in BRENDA is performed twice a year. Besides the upgrade of its content, improvements of the user interface are also incorporated. The next update was performed in January 2018.
