AKAP13 Rho GEF and PKD Binding Domain Deficient Mice Develop Normally but Have an Abnormal Response to β Adrenergic Induced Cardiac Hypertrophy

PLoS One
PMCID: 3637253
PMID: 23658642
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0062705

[…] Gene-trap events within AKAP13 were identified from the International Gene Trap Consortium (IGTC) database (at www.genetrap.org) and the IGTC Sequence Tag Alignments track on the UCSC Genome Browser , . From the sequence tag alignments, we identified ten u […]


The Molecular Biology Database Collection: 2008 update

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 2238887

DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkm1037

[…] ()] was superseded by the Dali database [http://ekhidna.biocenter.helsinki.fi/dali/start, no. 442, ()], while the BayGenomics database [http://baygenomics.ucsf.edu/, no 416, ()] was superseded by the International Gene Trap Consortium database [http://www.genetrap.org/, no 827, ()]. Two EBI database projects, the Alternative Splicing Database [ASD, ()], and the Alternative Transcript Diversity Dat […]


Characterization of microRNA expression profiles in normal human tissues

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 1904203
PMID: 17565689
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-8-166
call_split See protocol

[…] ined in our study were extracted for analyses. Target genes of miRNAs were predicted using the miRanda open-source software [] associated with the miRBase [] with a cutoff p value less than 0.05. The IGTC database [] was used to search the phenotype of mice carrying loss-of-function mutations. […]


High throughput trapping of secretory pathway genes in mouse embryonic stem cells

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1369290
PMID: 16478711
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gnj026

[…] the U3Ceo- and 99% of the FlipRosaCeo GTSTs belonged to known genes. A total of 717 unique genes were trapped, of which 440 have not been trapped by any of the conventional strategies applied by the IGTC or by the biotechnology company -Lexicon Genetics- (,) ().Secretory gene trapping rates were consistently inferior to the conventional trapping rates and decreased more quickly with accumulating […]


MitoP2: the mitochondrial proteome database—now including mouse data

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 1347489
PMID: 16381964
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkj127

[…] (). To date, more than 50 mouse models carrying mutations or deletions of mitochondrial genes have been investigated. For researchers interested in studying these models, MitoP2 provides links to the International Gene Trap Consortium (IGTC; ) to access the related mouse cell lines.MitoP2-Mouse and MitoP2-Human provide similar search options that allow single or combined searches for individual da […]
