Papers recorded before 1965. PubMed doesn’t have any. Don’t rely on PubMed as a primary source if you’re writing an historical article in your field. • Abstracts for most references recorded before 1976. Don’t expect great results from PubMed searches involving these. 41 42 Part I: Getting Started in Bioinformatics Retrieving Protein Sequences If putting PubMed to use for bibliographic searches is the most common bioinformatics thing biologists want to do, then the next most popular thing is to retrieve relevant protein sequences from the Web to find out more about the subject at the molecular level.
Chapter 1: Finding Out What Bioinformatics Can Do for You The early days of biochemistry were devoted to finding out a better way to represent proteins — preferably in terms of a formula that would explain their biological (or even nutritional) properties. Biochemists realized over time that proteins were huge molecules (macromolecules) made up of large numbers of amino acids (typically from 100 to 500), picked out from a selection of 20 “flavors” with names such as alanine, glycine, tyrosine, glutamine, and so on.
For instance, most DNA cutting enzymes (so-called restriction enzymes) have palindromic target sequences. Other palindromic sequences serve as binding sites, where regulatory proteins stick so they can turn genes on and off. Palindromic sequences also have a strong influence on the 3-D structure of DNA molecules. (And not just DNA. ) Looking for exact or approximate palindromes in DNA sequences is a classic bioinformatic exercise. Analyzing RNA Sequences DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the most dignified member of the nucleic acid family of macromolecules.
