In 2007, the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) made the ambitious promise to generate mutations in virtually every protein-coding gene of the mouse genome in a concerted worldwide action. Now, 5 years later, the IKMC members have developed high-throughput gene trapping and, in particular, gene-targeting pipelines and generated more than 17,400(More)
The transcription factors CREM, CREB, and ATF-1 constitute a subfamily of beta-Zip transcription factors. Several different kinase cascades regulate the activity of these proteins. The activator splice-isoform CREMtau is specifically and highly expressed in post-meiotic germ cells during mouse spermatogenesis. Male mice lacking CREMtau expression are(More)
To monitor the global gene expression of Corynebacterium glutamicum we established two formats of DNA-arrays on nylon membranes. We produced an ordered DNA-array of PCR fragments from a shotgun library of C. glutamicum representing a threefold coverage of the genome. With this format we studied genome-wide transcriptional changes after heat shock. Sequence(More)
Transcriptomics has become an important tool for the large-scale analysis of biological processes. This review aims to provide sufficient criteria to make an appropriate choice among the variety of 'closed' systems, represented by DNA microarrays, and 'open' systems like fragment display, tag sequencing and subtractive hybridization, depending on the(More)
BACKGROUND With the completion of the human genome sequence the functional analysis and characterization of the encoded proteins has become the next urging challenge in the post-genome era. The lack of comprehensive ORFeome resources has thus far hampered systematic applications by protein gain-of-function analysis. Gene and ORF coverage with full-length(More)
We report the production and availability of over 7000 fully sequence verified plasmid ORF clones representing over 3400 unique human genes. These ORF clones were derived using the human MGC collection as template and were produced in two formats: with and without stop codons. Thus, this collection supports the production of either native protein or(More)
