1. Curcumin Resource Database (www.crdb.in)
Curcumin (diferuloyl methane), a hydrophobic polyphenol derived from the spice turmeric and its analogs exhibit wide range of pharmacological activities including antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer activities. Curcumin Resource Database (CRDB) is an integrated and curated repository of curcumin analogs and their molecular targets. CRDB also contains information of various international and national patents on curcumin and its analogs. Currently the database has 1186 curcumin analogs with their 196 molecular targets curated from public domain databases and published literature in peer reviewed journals. The CRDB web portal contains user-friendly interfaces and is expected to be highly useful to the researchers working on structure/ligand based molecular design of curcumin analogs.
