Background The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is subdivided into different anatomical organs with many shared functions and characteristics, but also distinct differences. We have combined a genome-wide transcriptomics analysis with immunohistochemistry-based protein profiling to describe the gene and protein expression patterns that define the human GIT.

Determining the full complement of protein-coding genes is a key goal of genome annotation. The most powerful approach for confirming protein-coding potential is the detection of cellular protein expression through peptide mass spectrometry (MS) experiments. Here, we mapped peptides detected in seven large-scale proteomics studies to almost 60% of the protein-coding genes in the GENCODE annotation of the human genome. We found a strong relationship between detection in proteomics experiments and...

Human liver physiology and the genetic etiology of the liver diseases can potentially be elucidated through the identification of proteins with enriched expression in the liver. Here, we combined data from RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) and antibody-based immunohistochemistry across all major human tissues to explore the human liver proteome with enriched expression, as well as the cell type-enriched expression in hepatocyte and bile duct cells. We identified in total 477 protein-coding genes with ele...

Genome-scale metabolic models (GEMs) have proven useful as scaffolds for the integration of omics data for understanding the genotype–phenotype relationship in a mechanistic manner. Here, we evaluated the presence/absence of proteins encoded by 15,841 genes in 27 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients using immunohistochemistry. We used this information to reconstruct personalized GEMs for six HCC patients based on the proteomics data, HMR 2.0, and a task-driven model reconstruction algorithm (...

Several liver disorders result from perturbations in the metabolism of hepatocytes, and their underlying mechanisms can be outlined through the use of genome-scale metabolic models (GEMs). Here we reconstruct a consensus GEM for hepatocytes, which we call iHepatocytes2322, that extends previous models by including an extensive description of lipid metabolism. We build iHepatocytes2322 using Human Metabolic Reaction 2.0 database and proteomics data in Human Protein Atlas, which experimentally val...

DrugBank ( is a comprehensive online database containing extensive biochemical and pharmacological information about drugs, their mechanisms and their targets. Since it was first described in 2006, DrugBank has rapidly evolved, both in response to user requests and in response to changing trends in drug research and development. Previous versions of DrugBank have been widely used to facilitate drug and in silico drug target discovery. The latest update, DrugBank 4.0, has b...

Abstract Ensconsin is encoded by the MAP7 gene and belongs to the microtubule-associated proteins. This study aimed to explore its functional roles and partners in cell-cycle progression in cervical cancer. Data from the Cancer Genome Atlas-Cervical & Endocervical Cancer (TCGA-CESC) and the Genotype-Tissue Expression project were used for bioinformatic analysis. SiHa cells were used for in-vitro and in-vivo analysis. Co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) assay was conducted to explore the proteins inte...

Abstract In the central nervous system, neurons and the vasculature influence each other. While it is well described that a functional vascular system is trophic to neurons and that vascular damage contributes to neurodegeneration; the opposite scenario in which neural damage might impact the microvasculature is less defined. Here, using an in vivo excitotoxic approach in adult mice as a tool to cause specific damage to retinal ganglion cells, we detected a subsequent damage to endothelial cells...

A variety of missense mutations and a stop mutation in the gene coding for transmembrane protein 240 (TMEM240) have been reported to be the causative mutations of spinocerebellar ataxia 21 (SCA21). We aimed to investigate the expression of TMEM240 protein in mouse brain at the tissue, cellular, and subcellular levels. Immunofluorescence labeling showed TMEM240 to be expressed in various areas of the brain, with the highest levels in the hippocampus, isocortex, and cerebellum. In the cerebellum, ...

Abstract Background —Maintenance of tight controls on circulating blood metabolites is crucial to normal, healthy tissue and organismal function. A number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been associated with changes in the levels of blood metabolites. However, the impacts of the metabolite-associated SNPs are largely unknown because they fall within non-coding regions of the genome. Objective —We aimed to identify genes and tissues that are linked to changes in circulating blood m...

The immune system uses antibodies to fight microbes that cause disease. White blood cells pump antibodies into the bloodstream, and these antibodies latch onto bacteria and viruses, targeting them for destruction. But sometimes, the immune system gets it wrong. In autoimmune diseases, white blood cells mistakenly make antibodies that target the body's own tissues. Detecting these 'autoantibodies' in the blood can help doctors to diagnose autoimmune diseases. But the identities and targets of man...

The AT-hook transcription factor, AKNA, is a nuclear protein that affects a few physiological and pathological processes including cancer. Here, we investigated the role of AKNA in gastric cancer (GC). By using quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot assays, AKNA was found deregulated in both GC cell lines and 32 paired GC tissues. Subsequently, Kaplan-Meier analysis and clinicopathological analysis were conducted using both 32 GC cases’ data above and RNA-Seq...

Mutations that cause Huntington’s Disease involve a polyglutamine (polyQ) sequence expansion beyond 35 repeats in exon 1 of Huntingtin. Intracellular inclusion bodies of mutant Huntingtin protein are a key feature of Huntington’s disease brain pathology. We previously showed that in cell culture the formation of inclusions involved the assembly of disordered structures of mHtt exon 1 fragments (Httex1) and they were enriched with translational machinery when first formed. We hypothesized that na...
