InterPro release 1.0

 InterPro is an Integrated Resource of Protein Domains
 and Functional Sites. InterPro rationalises the complementary
 efforts of the PROSITE, PRINTS, Pfam and ProDom database projects.

 Each combined InterPro entry includes functional descriptions and
 literature references, and links are made back to the relevant member
 database(s), allowing users to see at a glance whether a particular
 family or domain has associated patterns, profiles, fingerprints, etc.
 Merged and individual entries (i.e., those that have no counterpart
 in the companion resources) are assigned unique accession numbers.
 Each InterPro entry lists all the matches against SWISS-PROT and TrEMBL

 InterPro release 1.0 (March 2000) contains 2990 entries,
 representing 556 domains, 2373 families, 47 repeats,
 and 14 post-translational modification sites. Overall,
 there are 823000 InterPro hits from 307361 SWISS-PROT + TrEMBL
 protein sequences. A complete list is available from the ftp
