[…] dataset gse21069 . human wat rnas were analysed as described., human gene symbols were attributed to each murine gene using the orthologue conversion software (https://biodbnet-abcc.ncifcrf.gov/db/dbortho.php) and resulting files were analysed with the gsea software [broad institute, v2.2.2]. pathway-enrichment scores were calculated with the gsea pre-ranking tool and the kegg pathway gene […]

[…] 7704 genes were identified as hif binding targets [, ]. after conversion of zebrafish genes to their corresponding human orthologs using the conversion tools (http://biodbnet.abcc.ncifcrf.gov/db/dbortho.php, http://david.abcc.ncifcrf.gov) we identified a total of 76 genes induced during regeneration that were previously reported to be hif-associated gene targets in human cells, suggesting […]

[…] motifs for simplicity. we examined the frequencies of str motifs to determine whether there was any statistical difference in their distributions between avian species., the gene id converter (dbortho) implemented in the biological database network or biodbnet was used to search for orthologous genes between chicken and other birds. next, we investigated the ratio of str motifs identified […]

[…] 2.0 microarray platform. to compare our psea-based expression predictions from human tissues to the mouse data, murine probesets were annotated with current corresponding hgnc gene assignments using dbortho tool in biodbnet (mudunuri et al., ) and the list of probesets for which psea achieved suitable expression models (tables , ) were reduced to unique hgnc ids. then for each assignment […]
