T3DBDatabase Content

The Toxin and Toxin-Target Database (T3DB) is a unique bioinformatics resource that compiles comprehensive information about common or ubiquitous toxins and their toxin-targets. Each T3DB record (ToxCard) contains over 80 data fields providing detailed information on chemical properties and descriptors, toxicity values, protein and gene sequences (for both targets and toxins), molecular and cellular interaction data, toxicological data, mechanistic information and references. This information has been manually extracted and manually verified from numerous sources, including other electronic databases, government documents, textbooks and scientific journals. A key focus of the T3DB is on providing 'depth' over 'breadth' with detailed descriptions, mechanisms of action, and information on toxins and toxin-targets. Potential applications of the T3DB include clinical metabolomics, toxin target prediction, toxicity prediction and toxicology education.
