PRotein Ontology

Other names: PRO, Protein Ontology, PR, The Protein Ontology, pro

Protein Ontology (PRO) provides an ontological representation of protein-related entities by explicitly defining them and showing the relationships between them. Each PRO term represents a distinct class of entities (including specific modified forms, orthologous isoforms, and protein complexes) ranging from the taxon-neutral to the taxon-specific. The ontology has a meta-structure encompassing three areas: proteins based on evolutionary relatedness (ProEvo); protein forms produced from a given gene locus (ProForm); and protein-containing complexes (ProComp).
