[…] proteins were categorized by molecular function, biological process and cellular component. kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes (kegg) pathway of identified proteins was performed by blastkoala in kegg database ( signal peptide was determined by signalp 4.1 server ( subcelluar localization was predicted by targetp 1.1 […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Spiroplasma floricola 23 6T (ATCC 29989), a Bacterium Isolated from a Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifera L.)

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5908944
PMID: 29674553
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00302-18

[…] descriptions were first annotated based on the homologous genes in other spiroplasma genomes () as identified by orthomcl (). subsequent manual curation was based on the information obtain from the blastkoala tool () and blastp () searches against the ncbi nonredundant database (). putative clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (crisprs) were identified using crisprfinder […]


Near Complete Genome Sequence of Pseudomonas palleroniana MAB3, a Beneficial 1 Aminocyclopropane 1 Carboxylate Deaminase Producing Bacterium Able To Promote the Growth of Mushrooms and Plants

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5908933
PMID: 29674537
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00242-18

[…] guidelines. the p. palleroniana mab3 genome annotation was performed using the ncbi prokaryotic genome annotation pipeline (). functional genome annotation of strain mab3 was performed using blastkoala (). the annotation of genes involved in secondary metabolite production was conducted using antismash ()., the genome of p. palleroniana mab3 contains a single circular chromosome of 6.29 […]


MiR 760 suppresses human colorectal cancer growth by targeting BATF3/AP 1/cyclinD1 signaling

PMCID: 5902951
PMID: 29661228
DOI: 10.1186/s13046-018-0757-8

[…] of mir-760 in humans. the top 50 predicted target genes were analyzed using a freely available web site [] (an automatic annotation server for genome and metagenome sequences to screen for genes related to cellular processes. this analysis revealed batf3 as a potential target of mir-760 (fig. ). to test if batf3 expression is regulated by mir-760, we cloned […]


High quality draft genome of the methanotroph Methylovulum psychrotolerans Str. HV10 M2 isolated from plant material at a high altitude environment

Stand Genomic Sci
PMCID: 5898042
PMID: 29686747
DOI: 10.1186/s40793-018-0314-2

[…] using the standard operating procedure of the integrated microbial genomes platform developed by the joint genome institute []. in addition, the genome of m. psychrotolerans hv10-m2 was submitted to blastkoala [] and pathway tools [] to be compared against the kegg [] and metacyc [] databases, respectively, for pathway predictions., the properties of the draft genome of m. psychrotolerans […]


The diversity and specificity of the extracellular proteome in the cellulolytic bacterium Caldicellulosiruptor bescii is driven by the nature of the cellulosic growth substrate

Biotechnol Biofuels
PMCID: 5865380
PMID: 29588665
DOI: 10.1186/s13068-018-1076-1

[…] is one of the most abundant proteins in the entire extracellular proteome but its function has yet to be determined. there are no known orthologs of this protein, though the second best hit in blastkoala [] matches to a multidrug efflux pump—an interesting connection but whose functional assignment would require additional experimental confirmation., one-way anova generated a list of 115 […]
