Using UniProt to Name Glycoproteins

UniCarbKB protein descriptions are based on the preferred name and primary accession identifier denoted by UniProtKB. However, in cases where UniProtKB does not describe the protein we use the protein name described in the cited publication - often this occurs for data curated from older publications – although we have attempted to update these records where possible. Similar to searching by tissue and taxonomy we have utilised the autocomplete feature for efficiently searching (single or multiple) records with corresponding protein names and accession numbers. 


Unfortunately, a number of glycoproteins do not have an UniProt identifier. This is often the case for data extracted from GlycoSuite especially for immunoglobulins. Due to difficulties in assigning such legacy data search results can be duplicated or appear less structured.
