The Database of Interacting Proteins is a database that archives tentatively decided protein – protein interactions. It gives established researchers an incorporated arrangement of apparatuses for extracting data about protein collaboration systems. The DIP inventories roughly 11 000 novel interactions among 5900 proteins are from in excess of 80 life forms; most of them are from yeast, Helicobacter pyloriand human. Instruments have been created that enable clients to examine, imagine and coordinate their own trial information with the data about protein– protein associations accessible in the DIP database.
The structure of the DIP has been designed to capture the essential information about protein–protein interactions available from experimental data. The database is implemented as a relational database composed of four tables. Protein Table lists proteins participating in an interaction within DIP. It provides, besides the DIP accession number, cross-references to the three major sequence databases (SWISS-PROT, GenBank, and PIR) as well as additional information about the proteins such as keyword, localization and cellular function.
DIP change envelops combination of the database with various effectively existing, settled natural databases, for example, SWISS-PROT, TRANSPATH, KEGG, and YPD to enable clients to effortlessly get to accumulate the greater part of the data about a solitary protein. To this we expect to build the quantity of cross-references revealed for each DIP section.
