Welcome to Kinases encoded in Genomes database
Kinases encoded in Genomes is a comprehensive collection of Ser/Thr/Tyr specific protein kinases and similar sequences encoded in the completed genomes of eukaryotes and prokaryotes. This site provides a detailed classification based on sequence similarity of eukaryotic protein kinases (Hanks and Hunter classification). The assignment of functional domains to the gene products containing the kinase catalytic domain is also available. A domain combination based search tool on this site enables the retrieval of list of protein kinases with specified functional domain combinations in both bacterial and eukaryotic genomes. A search tool for the presence of kinase catalytic domain and the critical functional residues(if any) in the query sequence is also provided.

- KinG database is updated on April 27, 2019
KinG now holds information on over 230000 kinases encoded in over 2000 organisms. This includes kinases encoded by prokaryotes, eukaryotes and viruses.
