The predictors were built using the following datasets in FASTA format:

Taxon Initial methionine removal N-terminal acetylation
Homo Sapiens hsa_ime hsa_acet
Metazoa meta_ime meta_acet
Eukaryota euk_ime euk_acet

The construction of these datasets is described in the original paper. All ambiguities and redundancies are removed as explained in the paper. In the sequences for the N-terminal Acetylation datasets, initial methionine is removed when needed.

In each file the header is at the following format:

>access_number PTM:x

where access_number is the Uniprot/KB primary access number, PTM indicates the relevant post-translational modification (IME or ACET) and x indicates the occurence of the PTM (y or n).

Terminus is a free service. If you want to publish any result obtained with our service, please cite the paper referenced in the contact page.

What is your policy about the sequences submitted to this service ?

Because we respect privacy and confidentiality, we won't store any submitted protein on our servers. The remain the sole property of the submitter.

Is it possible to download a stand-alone version of your service ?

We do not offer any download currently. But you have the possibility to use our service in your programs and scripts using our Web API.

If using our remote API is not an option for you, feel free to contact us.

Will you add other taxonomic groups ?

Why not ? Feel free to ask us. However, we will take the request into account only if our schedule allows for it.
