PRODORIC is a database that provides annotated information on the regulation of gene expression in prokaryotes. It integrates a large compilation of gene regulatory data including transcription factor binding sites, promoter structures and gene expression patterns. The whole dataset is manually curated and relies on published results extracted from the(More)
To provide an integrated bioinformatics platform for a systems biology approach to the biology of pseudomonads in infection and biotechnology the database SYSTOMONAS (SYSTems biology of pseudOMONAS) was established. Besides our own experimental metabolome, proteome and transcriptome data, various additional predictions of cellular processes, such as(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the most frequent agents of urinary tract infections especially in patients with indwelling urethral catheters. A total of 30 P. aeruginosa isolates from urinary tract infections was investigated for their genotypic and phenotypic characteristics. 'Single Nucleotide Polymorphism' chip typing experiments in combination with(More)
CONTEXT Natriuretic peptides (NP) regulate cardiovascular homeostasis and have multiple metabolic properties. Decreased levels of NP or "natriuretic handicap" are signs of insulin resistance such as central obesity. Increased expression of NP clearance receptor (NPRC) in sc adipose tissue (SAT) was observed in insulin-resistant subjects. OBJECTIVE We(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the histopathological changes of human temporomandibular joint osteoarthrosis following intra-articular injection of triamcinolone acetonide, and compare the results to these of control group. METHODS One hundred and forty nine patients who complained of temporomandibular joint dysfunction underwent(More)
Streptococci are the causative agent of many human infectious diseases including bacterial pneumonia and meningitis. Here, we present Strepto-DB, a database for the comparative genome analysis of group A (GAS) and group B (GBS) streptococci. The known genomes of various GAS and GBS contain a large fraction of distributed genes that were found absent in(More)
Modern high-throughput techniques allow for the identification and quantification of hundreds of metabolites ofa biological system which cover central parts of the metabolome. Due to the amount and complexity of obtained data there is an increasing need for the development of appropriate computational interpretation methods. A novel data analysis pipeline(More)
Biofilms of the Gram-negative bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa are one of the major causes of complicated urinary tract infections with detrimental outcome. To develop novel therapeutic strategies the molecular adaption strategies of P. aeruginosa biofilms to the conditions of the urinary tract were investigated thoroughly at the systems level using(More)
Systems biology approaches to bacteria require an integrated database and a bioinformatics tool platform to enable automated and manual annotation, regulatory and metabolic network deduction, and the storage of related experimental as well as predicted data. In this context ROSY--the Roseobacter SYstems biology database--was developed for completed and(More)
UNLABELLED GeneReporter is a web tool that reports functional information and relevant literature on a protein-coding sequence of interest. Its purpose is to support both manual genome annotation and document retrieval. PubMed references corresponding to a sequence are detected by the extraction of query words from UniProt entries of homologous sequences.(More)
