Other names: PRINTS protein motif fingerprint database, prints

PRINTS is a collection of groups of conserved protein motifs, called fingerprints, used to define a protein family. A fingerprint is a group of conserved motifs used to characterize a protein family. Usually, the motifs do not overlap, though they may be contiguous in 3D space. Fingerprints can encode protein folds and functionalities more flexibly than single motifs. Please note that the last release of this database on the PRINTS website was in 2007.
