Welcome to the BYKdb home page !

The specialized Bacterial tYrosine-Kinase database, BYKdb, contains computer-annotated BY-kinase sequences. BY-kinase proteins share no resemblance with their eukaryotic counterparts and they have been unified in a new protein family sharing a common sequence signature. These enzymes have been shown to control several biological functions in the bacterial cells. The database web interface allows static and dynamic queries and provides integrated analysis tools including sequence annotation.

The current BYKdb release is 43.0 with 8102 entries and was last updated on 2016-05-06 (see news).

The BYKdb service has been accessed 12314 times by 2732 unique users since 2011 (see statistics).

If you use BYKdb in your work, please cite Jadeau F. et al., Nucleic Acids Research, 2012 (see about).
