Welcome to PoysacDB Database
PolysacDB database has been developed to facilitate easy retrieval of information pertaining to microbial surface polysaccharides. This is the first time that an attempt has been made to shift the focus away from protein/peptide based antigens and bring it towards carbohydrate antigens. Currently, the database incorporates nearly 1,550 entries for 147 different antigenic polysaccharides from 367 different microbes collected from about 350 peer-reviewed publications.

It is expected that the number of entries would increase once the database becomes available to world-wide use. PolysacDB tries to bring the experimental data out into the open in a succinct and consolidated form where immunological and biochemical characteristics of antigen-antibody interactions can be studied in detail.
