Advanced searches

We provide carotenoid entries and organism entries. Please try to search with our free word retrieval systems at search.cgi and search_organism.cgi as basic AND searches. AND/OR search is also available at search2.cgi for carotenoid entry search. Other eight types of advanced searches are available as below. Please try!
 Basic searches

    Carotenoid entry search of a free word retrieval system.
            Please try to enter key words, such as chemical formula, and Carotenoid DB Fingerprints.
              Ex.) Alga, Plant, Staphylococcus, C40H54O3, Lycopanerols, 3-OH, 4=O, apo, epsilon, etc.

           


    Organism entry search of a free word retrieval system.
            Ex.) Cyanobacteria, alga, orange, Opisthokonta, Sea sponge, etc.

       

 Advanced searches

    Carotenoid entry search from chemical structure images.
                "http://carotenoiddb.jp/images.html"
    Carotenoid entry search by carbon numbers.
               Please enter smaller number in the left oxygen search box.
                Ex.) C30, O1, O4

             Carbon numbers:   -  C     
    Carotenoid entry search by carbon number and oxygen numbers.
               Please enter smaller number in the left oxygen search box.
                Ex.) C30, O1, O4
   
             Carbon number:  C      Oxygen number:  O  -  O    
    Exact search of carotenoid entry by Carotenoid DB Fingerprints.
              Ex.) 6',7'--H, 5,6+H, 3-OH, 3'-Ethanoyloxy, 5,6-Epoxy, 19,11-olide, 12'-nor, 13'-nor, 20'-nor, beta,epsilon

           
    Carotenoid entry search by the number of conjugated double bonds.
               Please enter smaller number in the left oxygen search box.
                Ex.)10,15
   
             Number of conjugated double bonds:   - 


    Search similar carotenoids with Carotenoid DB chemical fingerprints
            Ex.) CA00309 for β-carotene.

       
    Search similar carotenoids with source oragnism descriptions with Carotenoid DB chemical fingerprints
           * This may take a litte more time than a simple "Search similar carotenoids" linked above.
            Ex.) CA00721 for sea sponge caortenoid: Tethyanine.

       


    Predict biological activities of carotenoids using Carotenoid DB Chemical Fingerprints.
              Ex.) CA00309 (β-carotene), CA01076 (β-Damascone)
