The MEROPS database is an information resource for peptidases (also termed proteases, proteinases and proteolytic enzymes) and the proteins that inhibit them. These are hierarchically classified and assigned to a Family on the basis of statistically significant similarities in amino acid sequence. Families thought to be homologous are grouped together in a Clan. This collection references peptidase families.

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from MEROPS Family should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
2018 The MEROPS database of proteolytic enzymes, their substrates and inhibitors in 2017 and a comparison with peptidases in the PANTHER database.

Metaregistry MEROPS Family

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for with 1 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext MEROPS.FAMILY logo miriam
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE is used to demonstrate the provides available for Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
