The Yeast Proteome Database (YPD) is a model for the organization and presentation of comprehensive protein information. Based on the detailed curation of the scientific literature for the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, YPD contains more than 50 000 annotations lines derived from the review of 8500 research publications. The information concerning each of(More)
The BioKnowledge Library is a relational database and web site (http://www.proteome.com) composed of protein-specific information collected from the scientific literature. Each Protein Report on the web site summarizes and displays published information about a single protein, including its biochemical function, role in the cell and in the whole organism,(More)
The Yeast Proteome Database (YPDtrade mark) has been for several years a resource for organized and accessible information about the proteins of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We have now extended the YPD format to create a database containing complete proteome information about the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans (WormPDtrade mark). YPD and WormPD are(More)
In this study, we examined yeast proteins by two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis and gathered quantitative information from about 1,400 spots. We found that there is an enormous range of protein abundance and, for identified spots, a good correlation between protein abundance, mRNA abundance, and codon bias. For each molecule of well-translated mRNA,(More)
An improved method of two-dimensional gel electrophoresis has been developed which produces high resolution, reproducible images suitable for computer analysis. In the images that are presented, more than 800 proteins have been resolved without significant overlap, and many more proteins can be detected after longer exposures. To establish the usefulness of(More)
Studies of growth regulation and cellular transformation will be assisted by the identification of proteins that are preferentially synthesized in dividing cells. The 'proliferating cell nuclear antigen' ( PCNA ), distinguished by its apparent association with cell division, is defined by reaction with an antibody found in the autoimmune disease systemic(More)
Of the five classes of intermediate filaments found in vertebrate tissues, the cytokeratins are considered unique to epithelial tissues, while vimentin is expressed by endothelial and mesenchymal cells. In neither case is the precise function of the filament system known. Epithelial cells in culture often express vimentin as well as cytokeratins, but(More)
With the complete sequence of the yeast genome now available, efforts by many laboratories are underway to identify each of the spots on two-dimensional (2-D) gels corresponding to the most abundant yeast proteins. The high mass accuracy now attainable using matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-mass spectrometry equipped with delayed(More)
