PMCID: 4620938
PMID: 26504105
DOI: 10.1093/database/bav106

[…] enzyme–substrate reactions should also be considered as protein–protein interactions. for each of the reactions, the specific cell types in which the reactions are studied were also documented. pathbuilder, an in-house pathway curation tool that facilitates quality check and thereby error-free curation was used to document all the reactions systematically ()., the different types […]

PMID: 25371820
DOI: 10.1155/2014/173026

[…] modifications (ptms) (catalytic events). activation/inhibition status of proteins, alterations in protein localization, and also genes regulated at mrna level by tie2 signaling were also documented. pathbuilder, an in-house pathway annotation tool, was used for the curation of these reactions []. each curated reaction was internally reviewed by trained biocurators followed by an external review […]

[…] of proteins, (d) activation or inhibition of specific proteins, and (e) regulation of gene expression. relevant information from research articles were manually documented using the curation tool, pathbuilder. to streamline and organize data collection from literature, we followed the previously described criteria for the inclusion/exclusion of pathway specific reactions [, ]. the data […]

[…] were screened to capture molecular reactions stimulated by tweak in mammalian cells as compared to the corresponding unstimulated state. thereafter, with the use of an in-house developed software, pathbuilder [] that enables conversion of pathway data into standard community formats, namely, psi-mi, biopax, and sbml formats, we annotated biological information and reactions pertaining to tweak […]
