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
|Registry Name||Metaprefix||External Prefix|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
merops.family:S1 is used to demonstrate the provides available for
merops.family. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
