ENZYME - Enzyme nomenclature database

ENZYME is a repository of information relative to the nomenclature of enzymes. It is primarily based on the recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and it describes each type of characterized enzyme for which an EC (Enzyme Commission) number has been provided [More details / References].

A few EC numbers are preliminary, they include an 'n' as part of the fourth (serial) digit (e.g. EC 3.5.1.n3).
