TRANSFAC® Release 7.0 - Documentation

Gene: Contents

Initially designed to link TRANSFAC® data to the TRRD and Compel (now: TRANSCompelTM) databases, the GENE table (2397 entries) has gained more and more a central role, as it is not only jointly used by several of our own databases (in addition to TRANSCompelTM: TRANSPATH®, PathoDB® and S/MARt DBTM), but has been extended to one of the major link sources to other, external databases (EMBL, BRENDA, LocusLink, OMIM, RefSeq). As some of the regulated genes encode transcription factors themselves (which sometimes may even give rise to autoregulatory or feedback loops) there are not only links from gene to regulating factor (via site), but also from gene to encoded factors and vice versa. In addition to link all these databases the GENE table serves to list the transcription factor binding sites (and composite elements of TRANSCompelTM) within a gene regulatory region, and thus showing them in a context. Further, the GENE table contains the promoter classification number as proposed by P. Bucher. The ID of GENE entries is identical to that used in the TRANSFAC® SITE table, except that the consecutive number which characterizes individual sites is missing.

TRRD is maintainened at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics (Siberian Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia).
