No matter what you're looking for, start with a simple search like Histone or the UniProt ID of your protein of interest. You can always add a few descriptive words if necessary.
If you're looking for a gene or protein in a specific species, add the species. For example, try to type Human Histone in 'Any Field'. See below for more refined search options.
For many searches, ADPriboDB's general search bar will do the work for you and show an answer to your question in the search results. Some advanced search settings can be accessed by clicking the 'Advanced Search' link, which will drop down a list of additional search fields which you can use to narrow down your search, like filtering information by mono or poly, year, or UniProt ID.
Sorting allows you to rearrange entires in a particular order, while filtering enables you to hide all unecesary data and display only the specific information you need.
An easy way to search within a specific field is to double-click on the field heading, which will pop-up a search textbox for field-specific filtering and search.
Type keywords into the general search bar, and then click "Go".
