Database of Bacterial ExoToxins for Human is a database of sequences, structures, interaction networks and analytical results for 229 exotoxins, from 26 different human pathogenic bacterial genus. All toxins are classified into 24 different Toxin classes. The aim of DBETH is to provide a comprehensive database for human pathogenic bacterial exotoxins.
DBETH also provides a platform to its users to identify potential exotoxin like sequences through Homology based as well as Non-homology based methods. In homology based approach the users can identify potential exotoxin like sequences either running BLASTp against the toxin sequences or by running HMMER against toxin domains identified by DBETH from human pathogenic bacterial exotoxins. In Non-homology based part DBETH uses a machine learning approach to identify potential exotoxins (Toxin Prediction by Support Vector Machine based approach).
