SolCyc: a database hub at the Sol Genomics Network (SGN) for the manual curation of metabolic networks in Solanum and Nicotiana specific databases

PMCID: 5946812
PMID: 29762652
DOI: 10.1093/database/bay035

[…] s [Bos taurus in CattleCyc ()] and plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana in AraCyc (, ), Medicago truncatula in MedicCyc (), Fragaria vesca in FragariaCyc (), Oryza sativa in RiceCyc () and Zea mays in MaizeCyc (). While most PGDBs are created at the species level, this is not required and they can be generated at arbitrary levels in the taxonomic hierarchy. For instance, PlantCyc is a kingdom-level […]


Comparative Histological and Transcriptional Analysis of Maize Kernels Infected with Aspergillus flavus and Fusarium verticillioides

Front Plant Sci

[…] GePedia, Maize Protein Atlas databases (; ; ; ; ) and the R-like gene database published by . Differentially expressed maize genes were also placed into biosynthetic and regulatory pathways using the MaizeCyc database and the bioinformatics software Biocyc (). Clustering was performed using JMP, 11 (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC, United States). […]


Genome wide trait trait dynamics correlation study dissects the gene regulation pattern in maize kernels

[…] To more fully explore the functions of candidate genes, the annotation resources of maizeGDB ( and the InterPro ( database were integrated into the analyses [, ]. GO enrichment analyses were performed using the agriGO tool (http://systemsbio […]


The quality of metabolic pathway resources depends on initial enzymatic function assignments: a case for maize

BMC Syst Biol
PMCID: 5129634
PMID: 27899149
DOI: 10.1186/s12918-016-0369-x

[…] was developed using the Ensemble Enzyme Prediction Pipeline (E2P2 v2.0) [] created by Plant Metabolic Network (PMN) [] in collaboration with MaizeGDB ( [, ]. MaizeCyc 2.2 [] was developed based on the Ensembl XRef pipeline [, ] in collaboration between two database projects, Gramene ( and MaizeGDB. The term “Ensemble” in the CornCyc […]


Expression of OsMYB55 in maize activates stress responsive genes and enhances heat and drought tolerance

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4850646
PMID: 27129581
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-2659-5

[…] od to calculate a FDR. FDRs less than 0.05 were considered significant. GOseq and the same methodology for GO Term enrichment was used to identify enriched pathways and pathways names were taken from MaizeCyc version 2.0.1. In this case, FDRs less than 0.1 were considered significant in order to capture more pathways. […]


Characterization of the Maize Chitinase Genes and Their Effect on Aspergillus flavus and Aflatoxin Accumulation Resistance

[…] rence Sequence) [], UniProt [], InterPro [], UniGene [, ] and Carbohydrate-Active enZYmes (CAZY) [] were queried for any gene and/or protein with maize chitinolytic activity or sequence homology. The MaizeCyc database [] was also searched for any gene member with chitinase activity (GO:0004568), chitin catabolic activity (GO:0006032), and/or chitin binding (GO:0008061) (). In addition, a literatur […]
