Function

Extract data from PRINTS database for use by pscan

Description

printsextract preprocesses the PRINTS database for use with the program pscan. It derives matrix information from the final motif sets of the PRINTS data file (prints.dat). It creates files in the EMBOSS data subdirectory PRINTS these being a matrix file and files containing text information for each fingerprint. Running this program may be the job of your system manager.

Usage

gd; Acetylcholine is involved in the transfer of messages across a variety of
gd; synapses in vertebrates and invertebrates. The diverse physiological effects
gd; attributable to this molecule arise from the presence of specific receptors
gd; in the postsynaptic cell membranes. Several classes of receptor are known, 
gd; most of which translate the binding of acetylcholine into the opening of 
gd; channels for the passage of ions, such as sodium and potassium.
gd;
gd; Acetylcholinesterase is an enzyme that catalyses the hydrolysis of 
gd; acetylcholine to choline and acetate:
gd; 
gd;	     Acetylcholine + H(2)O -> Choline + Acetate 	     
gd; 
gd; The enzyme also acts on a variety of acetic esters and catalyses trans-
gd; acetylations. It is found in, or attached to, cellular or basement membranes
gd; of presynaptic cholinergic neurons and postsynaptic cholinoceptive cells.
gd; To prevent continuous firing of nerve impulses, acetylcholinesterase has a
gd; high K(cat) (~14000/s), to ensure that acetylcholine is broken down quickly.
gd;
gd; Cholinesterases constitute a family of enzymes that fall into two main
gd; types, depending on their substrate preference: enzymes that preferentially
gd; hydrolyse acetyl esters are termed acetylcholinesterase (AChE) (EC 3.1.1.7); 
gd; and those that prefer other types of ester, such as butyrylcholine are 
gd; termed butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) (EC 3.1.1.8).
