Change to the cross-references to GlyConnect

On August 12, 2020

We will introduce an additional field in the cross-references to the GlyConnect protein glycosylation database, a platform integrating sources of information to help characterize the molecular components of protein glycosylation. This will allow us to provide some additional information, e.g. about the nature of the glycans and the number of glycosylation sites.

Text format

Example: P12763

Current format:

DR   GlyConnect; P12763; -.

New format:

DR   GlyConnect; P12763; 49 N-Linked glycans (3 sites), 13 O-Linked glycans (6 sites).

XML format

Example: P12763

Current format:

<dbReference type="GlyConnect" id="P12763"/>

New format:

<dbReference type="GlyConnect" id="P12763"/>
  <property type="glycosylation" value="49 N-Linked glycans (3 sites), 13 O-Linked glycans (6 sites)"/>
</dbReference>

This change does not affect the XSD, but may nevertheless require code changes.
