[…] tissue and cell type associations were analyzed using generanker tool by providing a corresponding list of gene names as input. this tool employs a proprietary literature data-mining algorithm (litinspector) based on all pubmed abstracts. individual tissues to gene associations found on sentence level are filtered for significance. names and synonyms are based on medical subject headings […]

[…] the promoter region of drosha was analyzed for potential transcription factor binding using matinspector (genomatix inc., germany), followed by analysis for a potential gene suppression role using litinspector (genomatix). the drosha promoter luciferase reporter assay was performed in a2780 and mcf7 cells using the dual luciferase system (switchgear genomics). cells were transfected using […]

[…] tfs that transactivate or repress transcription in response to requirements for folate cofactors control the net levels of rfc transcripts in tissues , . literature and pathway mining using the litinspector software showed that rfc (slc19a1) has potential interactions with creb1 (camp responsive element binding protein-1). cre/ ap-1-like consensus sequence is one of the two major sites […]
