DORRS is a Database Of RGD Related Sequences which collects active linear and cyclized short peptide sequences taken from literature.

RGD (Arginine-Glycine-Aspartic acid) motifs are largely investigated for their anti-adhesive activity, which makes these molecules interesting candidates as anti-metastatis drugs.

The current release of DORRS (May 2005) includes 129 entries.

DORRS is developed within the ASC (Active Sequence Collection) project. The ASC home page contains information about present and past release, updates, and references.

This database is accessible by the SITEMATCHER searching tool, an original software specifically developed to search the databases from the ASC project.
