The Receptor Database (RDB, http://impact.nihs.go.jp/RDB.html) has been developed to help researchers retrieve various data related to receptors in a systematic manner. The system has been available on the Internet for public use since 1997. Recently, the RDB contents were updated and its links expanded to other Web sites and supplemented with additional database modules. The new RDB aims to support structural biologists and drug designers not only for the examination of receptor-ligand binding but also for the elucidation of post binding signal transduction pathways.
