IMGT/PROTEIN-DB (in development)
IMGT/PROTEIN-DB (in development) will be a new database related to immunoglobulin and T cell receptor amino acid sequences in the IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system® http://www.imgt.org.
IMGT/PROTEIN-DB will allow a search per protein name and will be based on the CLASSIFICATION concept of IMGT-ONTOLOGY.
Although the implementation is still in progress, information on the translation of IG and TR genes and alleles is already available in IMGT Repertoire > Proteins and alleles [1-4].
Information on 3D structures is available in IMGT Repertoire > 2D and 3D structures and in IMGT/3Dstructure-DB.
The human IMGT IG and TR nomenclature [1-2] was approved by the HUman Genome Organization (HUGO) Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) in 1999.
