The Human Mitochondrial Protein Database (HMPDb) provides comprehensive data on mitochondrial and human nuclear encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial biogenesis and function. This database consolidates information  from SwissProt, LocusLink, Protein Data Bank (PDB), GenBank, Genome Database (GDB)Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM), Human Mitochondrial Genome Database (mtDB), MITOMAP, Neuromuscular Disease Center and Human 2-D PAGE Databases. The mitochondrion plays a central role in cellular metabolism, and evidence of mitochondrial involvement in a number of different human diseases is increasing. This database is intended as a tool not only to aid in studying the mitochondrion but in studying the associated diseases.
