This help document answers the following questions:
Yes. You can search a sequence by entering the sequence accession identifier, (also known as the sequence accession ID, sequence ID, seq ID, or accession ID). To have MouseBLAST fetch your sequence, find Option 1 in the Query sequence section of the MouseBlast query form and do the following:
The following table shows examples of sequence database and sequence ID combinations. Note: Items in the Unique Seq ID column are representative of IDs in databases listed in the Sequence Provider column; however, on any given day querying by that ID may not yield a result, due to database updates or changes.

If the sequence retrieval tool is not working, MouseBLAST returns an error message to that effect. Try to obtain your sequence from a web resource such Entrez at the NCBI or ExPASy at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB).
MouseBLAST returns an error message when a unique sequence identifier is not valid. Either retype the identifier and repeat the search or enter a different identifier.Top
