The data are regularly curated from public databases and the literature; interfaces are inferred from the collection of protein-DNA complexes at 3D-footprint:

total unique metazoa plants
Transcription Factors 9938 7295 4839 1233
DNA motifs (PSSM) 14636 11400 8089 7428
DNA Binding Sites/Sequences 46154

footprintDB predicts:

  1. Transcription factors which bind a specific DNA site or motif
  2. DNA motifs or sites likely to be recognized by a specific DNA-binding protein
