Long term Monocyte Dysfunction after Sepsis in Humanized Mice Is Related to Persisted Activation of Macrophage Colony Stimulation Factor (M CSF) and Demethylation of PU.1, and It Can Be Reversed by Blocking M CSF In Vitro or by Transplanting Naïve Autologous Stem Cells In Vivo

[…] In order to assess epigenetic regulation of PU.1, an analysis of methylation of SPI1 was conducted. Using the CpG Island Finder program (http://dbcat.cgm.ntu.edu.tw), we analyzed 3 kb fragment of the SPI1 gene encoding the PU.1 transcription factor. The analyzed fragment was located from 1.5 kb upstream to 1.5 kb downstream of the position co […]


Long non‐coding RNA 00312 regulated by HOXA5 inhibits tumour proliferation and promotes apoptosis in Non‐small cell lung cancer

[…] were no CpG islands in the promoter of linc00312 by the analysis of the promoter sequence of linc00312 using the online software (http://www.urogene.org/cgi-bin/methprimer/methprimer.cgi) and (http://dbcat.cgm.ntu.edu.tw/) (Fig. C and D). Then, we explored whether histones methylation influences linc00312. The polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) catalyses trimethylation of lysine 27 of histone H3 […]


A Survey of Bioinformatics Database and Software Usage through Mining the Literature

[…] urce inclusion. For example, the Database of Databases (DoD) [] and BioMed Central’s Databases catalog (http://databases.biomedcentral.com/) were previously established, but are no longer accessible. DBcat [] was incorporated into a regular special issue from Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) [], which lists databases which have been published at some point within that journal, and the Bioinformatics L […]


Sustainable funding for biocuration: The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) as a case study of a subscription based funding model

PMCID: 4795935
PMID: 26989150
DOI: 10.1093/database/baw018

[…] lasting 3–5 years, for any given database, the prospects for long-term funding are uncertain. In a recent assessment of long-term survivability of databases, 62.3% of 326 databases listed in the 1997 DBcat were considered ‘dead’ after 18 years (). Survivors tended to have strong, long-term sources of financial support (i.e. institutional or direct government funding) whereas extinct, ‘zombie’ or d […]
