A database of protein sequences of transporters of the model legume Medicago truncatula. Both automated search and manual curation were performed in identifying candidate protein sequences. Extensive annotations referring to each protein were generated, including basic protein function, genome locus, sequence annotations as well as transmembrane segment. A chromosome distribution map, text-based and BLAST search tools against known sequences of M.truncatula and known 3D structures of transporters were also created. A user-friendly web interface and regular updates make database valuable to researchers in related fields.
