logo PRotein Ontology (PRO)

An ontological representation of protein-related entities

The PRotein Ontology (PRO) formally defines taxon-specific and taxon-neutral protein-related entities in three major areas: proteins related by evolution; proteins produced from a given gene; and protein-containing complexes.
