Abstract: Active Sequences Collection (ASC) is a collection of amino acid sequences, with an unique feature: only short sequences are collected, with a demonstrated biological activity. The current version of ASC consists of three sections: DORRS, a collection of active RGD-containing peptides; TRANSIT, a collection of protein regions active as substrates of transglutaminase enzyme (TGase), and BAC, a collection of short peptides with demonstrated biological activity. Literature references for each entry are reported, as well as cross references to other databases, when available. The current version of ASC includes more than 800 different entries. The main scope of this collection is to offer a new tool to investigate the structural features of protein active sites, additionally to similarity searches against large protein databases or searching for known functional patterns. ASC database is available at the web address http://crisceb.unina2.it/ASC/ which also offers a dedicated query interface to compare user-defined protein sequences with the database, as well as an updating interface to allow contribution of new referenced active sequences.
