How do I find the UniProt ID of a gene?

Select the Retrieve/ID mapping tab of the toolbar and enter or upload a list of identifiers (or gene names) to do one of the following: Retrieve the corresponding UniProt entries to download them or work with them on this website.

What is the UniProt ID?

The proteome identifier (UPID) is the unique identifier assigned to the set of proteins that constitute the proteome. It consists of the characters ‘UP’ followed by 9 digits, is stable across releases and can therefore be used to cite a UniProt proteome. UniProtKB entries can be linked to one or more UPIDs.

What is entry in UniProt?

Entry status. Indicates if the entry has been manually reviewed (UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot) or not (UniProtKB/TrEMBL) Annotation programs. UniProt concentrates its manual annotation effort on entries from model organisms. Disclaimer.

How do you find the Entrez gene ID?

To check that an Entrez id is valid, you can simply use the Entrez Eutils APIs:[id] In this case “1234[id]” means that we are searching for genes whose ID is 1234.

Is UniProt and Swiss-Prot same?

Swiss-Prot (created in 1986) is a high quality manually annotated and non-redundant protein sequence database, which brings together experimental results, computed features and scientific conclusions. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot is now the reviewed section of the UniProt Knowledgebase.

What is an accession ID?

Accession ID. MGI Glossary. Definition. A unique alphanumeric character string that is used to unambiguously identify a particular record in a database. Examples include MGI accession IDs, GenBank accession IDs, and PubMed accession IDs.

How do you retrieve a protein sequence from UniProt?

Retrieving sequences from the website

  1. Perform your favorite query and view the resulting list of entries (e.g. this query retrieves all UniProtKB entries that are part of the human proteome: proteome:UP000005640)
  2. Click the Download button in the query result page.

How many characters are there in species name of Uniprot ID?

A mnemonic organism identification code of at most 5 alphanumeric characters is used in the entry name of UniProtKB entries, e.g. SP0A_BACSU. This code is generally made of the first three letters of the genus name and the first two letters of the species name. NAJNI is for Naja nivea.
