SulfAtlas: The Database of Sulfatases
Barbeyron T., Brillet-Guéguen L., Carré W., Carrière C., Caron C., Czjzek M., Hoebeke M., Michel G. 2016. Matching the Diversity of Sulfated Biomolecules: Creation of a Classification Database for Sulfatases Reflecting Their Substrate Specificity. PLoS One; 11(10):e0164846

In the context of the explosion of genomic data, the functional annotation of sulfatases is thus particularly prone to flaws and misinterpretations. A classification system allowing for a better prediction of substrate specificity and for setting the limit of functional annotations was therefore urgently needed for sulfatases. SulfAtlas describes the family and sub-families of structurally-related sulfatases. Sub-families are created based on phylogenetic analyses and essentially correspond to different substrate specificities. more
