Finding the causal genetic regions underlying complex traits is one of the main aims in human genetics. In the context of complex diseases, which are believed to be controlled by multiple contributing loci of largely unknown effect and position, it is especially important to develop general yet sensitive methods for gene mapping. We discuss the use of(More)
The MitoP2 database ( integrates information on mitochondrial proteins, their molecular functions and associated diseases. The central database features are manually annotated reference proteins localized or functionally associated with mitochondria supplied for yeast, human and mouse. MitoP2 enables (i) the identification of putative(More)
In this study yeast mitochondria were used as a model system to apply, evaluate, and integrate different genomic approaches to define the proteins of an organelle. Liquid chromatography mass spectrometry applied to purified mitochondria identified 546 proteins. By expression analysis and comparison to other proteome studies, we demonstrate that the(More)
Overexpression in insect cells of the full coding sequence of the human membrane cytoskeletal linker ezrin (1-586) was compared with that of a NH2-terminal domain (ezrin 1-233) and that of a COOH-terminal domain (ezrin 310-586). Ezrin (1-586), as well as ezrin (1-233) enhanced cell adhesion of infected Sf9 cells without inducing gross morphological changes(More)
The aim of the MitoP2 database ( is to provide a comprehensive list of mitochondrial proteins of yeast and man. Based on the current literature we created an annotated reference set of yeast and human proteins. In addition, data sets relevant to the study of the mitochondrial proteome are integrated and accessible via search tools(More)
Recently the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) sponsored a comparative exercise in which different prediction approaches (both biologically and chemically based) were challenged for their predictive abilities of rodent carcinogenicity of a common set of chemicals. The exercise enjoyed remarkable scientific success and stimulated NTP to sponsor a second(More)
UNLABELLED Association studies may request more details of a specific haplotype. Haplotype-specific decay of linkage disequilibrium is such a crucial and versatile characteristic. It may be used, e.g. to search for signals of natural selection in a risk haplotype. Here, we present a web-based tool to explore the relationship between population frequency and(More)
