RegTransBase consists of two modules - a database of regulatory interactions based on literature and an expertly curated database of transcription factor binding sites. Our literature based information in RegTransBase is a manually curated database of regulatory interactions in prokaryotes more

Genes and Regulators:
Search for genes involved in regulatory experiments using the gene name, function, product, accession number, or any other genbank annotation. Example:rpoD, NP_289905, histidine protein kinase. *(No wildcard characters allowed)  
Search effectors by their name. Example:glucose, iron.
Full Text :
Search Experiments and Articles using text contained in that articles abstract, the journal title, the authors, and a short description of the experiments within that article. Example:"fnr binding", "+mga +promoter", "Gelfand"
