Getting Uniprot accession number

Hello,

I have a table full of Uniprot protein names and an uniprot identifier like this : ANTR6_ARATH. https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q3E9A0&format=html

It is supposed to be the gene id, however when I use https://biodbnet-abcc.ncifcrf.gov/db/db2db.php with ANTR6_ARATH as a gene id input I have no output results (I have tried Uniprot info and Kegg info also as outputs).

Does anyone know how I could use this identifier on biodbnet ?

ANTR6_ARATH : ANTR6 is gene symbol (for bioDBnet entry) and ARATH = ARAbidopsis THaliana.

Using the gene symbol as input will give you output with UniProt selection.

Note: assigning the "uniprot" tag to your post would have made it much more findable and we could have replied earlier.

ANTR6_ARATH is a mnemonic identifier for the UniProtKB entry, often also called "entry name", but it is not a stable identifier (see https://www.uniprot.org/help/entry_name). In contrast, we strongly recommend to use the accession number instead: An accession number (AC) is assigned to each sequence upon inclusion into UniProtKB. Accession numbers are stable from release to release. https://www.uniprot.org/help/difference_accession_entryname

The accession number of ANTR6_ARATH is Q3E9A0 (see https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q3E9A0)

I recommend that you upload your list of mnemonics to the UniProt Batch retrieve/IDmapping tool at https://www.uniprot.org/uploadlists This will return the list of accession numbers - click on "Downloads" to obtain either the mapping table or the list of UniProtKB ACs. These are more widely used in other databases.

@GenoMax: The UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot entry name consists of up to 11 uppercase alphanumeric characters with a naming convention that can be symbolized as X_Y, where: X is a mnemonic protein identification code of at most 5 alphanumeric characters; The mnemonic code 'X' is an abbreviation of the protein/gene name, which does not necessarily correspond to the recommended protein name or to the gene name (https://www.uniprot.org/help/entry_name).

Please don't hesitate to contact the UniProt helpdesk if you have any addtional questions.

My comment was showing OP what selections they needed to use with bioDBnet to get expected output.
