Using genome wide association studies to identify common QTL regions in three different genetic backgrounds based on Iberian pig breed

PLoS One
PMCID: 5844516
PMID: 29522525
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190184

[…] using biomart tool from the porcine ensembl database, sscrofa11.1. in order to identify potential candidate genes the function of genes within each of the selected regions (±1mb) were examined using varelect [], string [] babelomics [] and ncbi databases (growth, muscle development and fat metabolism related genes). moreover, additional information of gene expression data from a previous study […]


Time and polarity dependent proteomic changes associated with homeostatic scaling at central synapses

PMCID: 5814146
PMID: 29447110
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.33322.026

[…] 0 = 0.05, 250 randomizations), followed by post-hoc fisher lsd p<0.05 (in origin 2015g sr1, originlab), yielding 168 proteins (, , ). significantly regulated proteins were annotated (, ) using the varelect interpretation tool () by lifemap’s genecards suite (). cellular component ontologies enriched in the regulated proteome compared to the 5135 newly synthesized proteins as the background were […]


Induced pluripotent stem cell modelling of HLHS underlines the contribution of dysfunctional NOTCH signalling to impaired cardiogenesis

Hum Mol Genet
PMCID: 5886295
PMID: 28521042
DOI: 10.1093/hmg/ddx140

[…] project and esp6500 (). over 200 deleterious variants were identified in each of the five hlhs patients. further selection of these variants was carried out using the lifemap discovery tools [varelect, genecards, malacards (,)] and pubmed using the search terms: cardiomyocytes, hlhs, mitral stenosis, aortic stenosis, bicuspid valve, outflow tract problems, cardiac vasculogenesis, patent […]


Enrichment of in vivo transcription data from dietary intervention studies with in vitro data provides improved insight into gene regulation mechanisms in the intestinal mucosa

PMCID: 5390468
PMID: 28413565
DOI: 10.1186/s12263-017-0559-1

[…] chemical effector molecules (leukotrienes), or important inhibitors or stimulators of defined transcriptional mechanisms of in vivo pathways (e.g. mtor), were selected using the genotyping programme varelect (lifemap sciences, inc.)., each microarray comparison between an intervention and control treatment was analysed separately to extract degs with a cut-off of p value <0.05 and an absolute […]


Sideroflexin 3 is an α synuclein dependent mitochondrial protein that regulates synaptic morphology

PMCID: 5278670
PMID: 28049716
DOI: 10.1242/jcs.194241

[…] by ≥15% across two independent technical replicates (table s1). the remaining 200 proteins were submitted to bioinformatics pathway analysis through ingenuity pathway analysis (ipa), david and varelect, revealing a striking enrichment of proteins (74 out of 200) belonging to mitochondrial pathways (; table s1). this provides substantial experimental support for the hypothesis […]


Benchmarking of Whole Exome Sequencing and Ad Hoc Designed Panels for Genetic Testing of Hereditary Cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5209723
PMID: 28050010
DOI: 10.1038/srep37984

[…] which classified them as high impact (frameshift, nonsense, stop lost/gain, exon/chromosome deletion, canonic splice-site), and directly related to cancer according to the varelect prioritization tool (, putative pathogenic variants confirmation, cosegregation studies and loss of heterezygosity analysis were performed by sanger sequencing […]
