biocatnet TEMLacED v3.2

TEM Lactamase Engineering Databae version3.2

part of the BioCatNet

This Internet database integrates information on sequence, structure and function of TEM lactamases.

The BioCatNet Database System aims to collect and present comprehensive information about biocatalysts: sequence, structure, educts, products, environmental conditions and kinetics. Moreover, it will reveal structure-function relationships to boost development of novel biocatalysts.

To contribute to BioCatNet by submission of functional information, please refer to the information in the BioCatNet Wiki.

A family-specific protein database in TEM lactamases. This repository was designed to support rational engineering of TEM lactamases.
