What is the most common and updated database?

I am trying to blasting the collected sequences of transcripts. But I am confusing of what database is better choice. Because the information in different database is shown with different result (>@<). Besides, people said the genomic databases are modified often, then how can I know which sequence in database is last update or is more confident.

As bob1 said, when blasting human or mouse select Genomic+transcript database, which should contain reference sequences only, and for any other choose refseq database, maybe limit it by a species you work with in the field below (if you don't want to blast across species of course).
