Summary: Metal-MACiE is a new publicly available web-based database, held in MySQL, which aims to organize the available information on the properties and the roles of metals in the context of the catalytic mechanisms of metalloenzymes. Metal-MACiE, which currently covers 75% of metal-dependent enzyme commission (EC) sub-sub-classes and is continuously growing, exploits the existing MACiE database for the annotation of the reaction mechanisms. The two databases constitute complementary sources of information for enzymology, biochemistry and molecular pharmacology studies.
