Finds naturally occurring enzymes. ThYme presents enzymes acting on thioester-containing substrates, especially those involved in fatty acid and polyketide synthesis. This online resource also facilitates enzyme design and encompasses eight enzyme groups. It also helps to predict active sites, catalytic residues and mechanisms of individual sequences, as well as providing a standardized nomenclature.
