Transporter Classification Database

Transporter Classification Database (or TCDB) is an International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) approved classification system for membrane transport proteins including ion channels.[1] This classification system was designed to be analogous to the EC number system for classifying enzymes, but it also uses phylogenetic information.
