InterPro is a database of protein families, domains and functional sites in which identifiable features found in known proteins can be applied to unknown protein sequences.

The database is available for text- and sequence-based searches via a webserver (, and for download by anonymous FTP (

To cite a particular InterPro article in Wikipedia, use the template of the form {{InterPro|IPRxxxxxx}}, where IPRxxxxxx is an InterPro accession number, for instance InterPro: IPR000001.
