STRENDA Special Issue


Special Issue: Reporting Enzymology Data – STRENDA Recommendations and Beyond – a highly educational, open access collection of 14 articles (published May 2014)

The STRENDA (Standards for Reporting Enzymology Data) Commission was set up almost ten years ago to address the improvement of the reporting quality of functional enzyme data in order to support the community with the efficient application of enzyme kinetics in the investigation of biological systems in vivo, in vitro and in silico. The Commission proposes guidelines as to how functional enzyme data should be described in the literature, with a detailed checklist of information, such as an unambiguous identification of the enzyme, a description of its preparation and of the conditions under which it was assayed. Experts from a wide range of specific research areas within enzymology were invited to add their views on, for example, thermodynamics, isotope effects, application of NMR, development and application of enzyme nomenclature, methods in designing enzyme assays in basic research and industrial biocatalysis as well as on the issues of data capturing, storage and mining in databases. This open access collection of 14 articles is addressed to all readers, including students, researchers and professors, who are interested in general aspects of data quality and in ways to interpret already published data.

Computational data in SABIO-RK


In February 2014 SABIO-RK started to include in silico data from computational models. The search can be defined by selecting the filtering option "BioModel".

Data are uploaded via SBML format and linked to the original source e.g. BioModels Database.

Signalling data in SABIO-RK


With the release 2013_08 it is now possible to search SABIO-RK for kinetic data related to signalling reactions. You can either search for participating molecules, a signalling modification or a signalling event. Naturally, any other search possibility is also supported as for the metabolic reactions.

SABIO-RK tutorial at ICSB 2013


A SABIO-RK tutorial will be presented as part of a full-day tutorial workshop on September 4, 2013 following the ICSB conference in Copenhagen (Denmark).
