Data Content


Each organism presents a unique nomenclature regarding gene names. Here, we present both common (standard) and systematic gene names for each gene / protein; typically, these gene names have been obtained from the appropriate model organism database (e.g., SGD, MGI, FlyBase, WormBase, TAIR, etc.)

Standard Name: To the best of our knowledge, the "standard name" presented here is the officially recognized name for this gene. Please let us know if we have erred.

Systematic Name: Many genes possess systematic names derived from the location of a given gene within the organism's genome (e.g., YIL046W in yeast).

Synonym: Synonyms for each gene are presented here; again these synonyms have been extracted from corresponding model organism databases.

Full Name: The full name for the given gene.

Description: A concise description of the function (when known) of the indicated protein.

Comment: Any necessary clarification regarding gene function. In many cases, we have included available phenotypic information within this field to provide a more complete representation of gene function.

Organism: Each organism is designated by a common name (in most but not all cases) along with its full scientific name.

Gene Ontology (GO): When available, we have included terms from the Gene Ontologies: the cellular component, molecular function, and biological process fields are discussed more fully in GO.

Localization: : The organelle home or subcellular localization of a given protein. For additional descriptions of the localization terminology employed in Organelle DB, click here).

Sequence: The amino acid sequence of each protein is presented (when available). Note that multiple sequences may be listed for alternatively spliced proteins.

Length: The amino acid length of each protein sequence is listed.

Image: When available, we have included fluorescent micrographs (principally of yeast cells) visualizing the described protein localization. For all such yeast cell images, the left-most image presents yeast cells stained with the DNA-binding dye DAPI (visualizing the nucleus and mitochondria); the right-most image presents the same cells stained by indirect immunofluorescence using appropriate monoclonal antibodies (note that the indicated protein has been epitope-tagged with either the HA or V5 epitope).
