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.
Local identifiers in MEROPS Family should match this
Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from MEROPS Family should match
this regular expression:
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
1 unique external prefixes.
|Registry Name||Metaprefix||External Prefix|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
is used to demonstrate the provides available for
merops.family. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
