Finding chimeric and fusion proteins on BenchSci

Searching for two proteins simultaneously shows products mapped to both

Chimeric (or fusion proteins) may comprise two native proteins, fragments, or domains combined in a single polypeptide chain. To help you find chimeric proteins on BenchSci, we’ve updated the way we interpret search terms — simultaneously searching for two proteins will return products mapped to both, like you would expect for chimeras and fusion proteins! In the example below, the products you are shown target TAK1 and TAB1.

Searching Chimeras and Fusion proteins

Alternatively, if you are looking for a fusion with a common reporter protein, like Green Fluorescent Protein, you can search for GFP/eGFP in the modification filter during your search for a single protein.
