DATABASES ON MEDICINE AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
|Adipocyte Proteome Database" info|
Database of in-depth analysis of the adipocyte proteome by mass spectrometry and bioinformatics.
|Genomics of Lipid-associated Disorders Database|
The GOLD.db was developed to address the need to integrate disparate information on the function and properties of genes and their protein products that are particularly relevant to the biology, diagnosis management, treatment, and prevention of lipid-associated disorders including non-insulin dependent diabetes, various hyperlipidemias, high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.
|LIPID BANK for Web DATABASE|
Lipid-database, produced by the International Medical Center of Japan and the
Japan Science and Technology Agency.
LIPIDAG is a database of lipid miscibility and associated information.
|LIPID Metabolites And Pathways Strategy" info|
Database of the lipid classification scheme.
|Lipid Molecular Structure Database|
Database about the molecular structure of lipids.
|LipOXygenases DataBase" info|
Due to their involvement in several diseases like cancer, inflammation, fever or arthritis, a lot of research is done on lipoxygenases yielding information about sequence, structure and function of these proteins. The LipOXygenases-DataBase (LOX-DB) is an effort to combine these informations and the related literature in one database and make it available via the internet.
Peroxisomes are single-membrane subcellular organelles, present in most eukaryotic cells and organisms.
The Peroxisome fulfills essential metabolic functions in lipid metabolism, both catabolic (oxidation of pipecolic, phytanic and very-long chain fatty acids) and anabolic (synthesis of plasmalogens and bile acids). Moreover, the peroxisome plays a key role in free radical detoxification, differentiation, development and morphogenesis from human to yeast. Fatal disorders are related to defective peroxisomal function or biogenesis.
The aim of PEROXISOME database (PeroxisomeDB) is to gather, organise and integrate curated information on peroxisomal genes, their encoded proteins, their molecular function and metabolic pathway they belong to, and their related disorders. PeroxisomeDB contains the complete peroxisomal proteome of Homo sapiens (encoded by 85 genes) and Saccaromyces cerevisiae (encoded by 61 genes).
