neXtProt is a database of the human proteome containing information on over 20,000 human proteins, the vast majority of which their existence has been determined through direct identification or through the identification of their mRNA transcripts. neXtProt offers the ability to identify proteins through their name, DNA, amino acid sequence, and chromosome of origin. neXtProt also allows for the more in depth study of protein variants of ion channels, kinases, and proteins associated with cancer.
