In the recent publication entitled “Caenorhabditis elegans phosphatase complexes in UniProt and Complex Portal,” the two databases consider the phosphatome of the model organism C.elegans, and comprehensively review the way in which data characterising phosphatase-containing macromolecular complexes are presented. The databases use complementary curation approaches: UniProt is a protein-centric database and provides data on the complexes proteins may form or contribute to, whilst the Complex Portal presents data on macromolecular complexes and includes details of any specific protein functions that may be necessary for complex formation or function. This is the first study to compare and contrast the curation of phosphatase-containing complexes between the databases and portrays how collaborative efforts can answer a variety of research questions and widen investigative avenues.
