    ALPORT Syndrome and COL4A5

    Alport Syndrome is a progressive renal disease with cochlear and ocular involvement. The most common form (~80%) is inherited in an X-linked pattern. X-linked Alport Syndrome (OMIM #301050) is caused by mutations in the type IV collagen alpha chain 5 (COL4A5). The aim of this database is to record all known variants in the COL4A5 gene and their clinical significance. The GenBank sequence NC_000023.9 is used as the reference sequence. The Human Genome Variation Society nomenclature has been used to describe COL4A5 mutations, as well as original nomenclature described by Zhou et al (1994), which includes 202 nucleotides of 5' UTR. ARUP offers full gene sequencing analysis (test 0051786) for classic X-linked Alport syndrome (80% of mutations) and targeted testing for p.C1564S (c.4692G>A), p.L1649R (c.4946T>G), p.R1677Q (c.5232G>A) mutations for adult type Alport syndrome (test 0051710).

    Human Oral Microbiome Database (HOMD)

    The goal of creating the Human Oral Microbiome Database (HOMD) is to provide the scientific community with comprehensive information o­n the approximately 600 prokaryote species that are present in the human oral cavity. The majority of these species are uncultivated and unnamed, recognized primarily by their 16S rRNA sequences. The HOMD presents a provisional naming scheme for the currently unnamed species so that strain, clone, and probe data from any laboratory can be directly linked to a stably named reference entity. The HOMD links sequence data with phenotypic, phylogenetic, clinical, and bibliographic information. Full and partial oral bacterial genome sequences determined as part of this project and the Human Microbiome Project, are being added to the HOMD as they become available. HOMD offers easy to used tools for viewing all publically available oral bacterial genomes

    Medicinal Materials DNA Barcode Database - MMDBD

    Medicinal materials from natural sources have been used for centuries in China and other countries. They have been recognized as particularly suitable for treating modern diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, asthma and other long-term illnesses. Substitutes and adulterants are often introduced intentionally or accidentally, thus seriously interfering with their therapeutic effects, even leading to life-threatening poisoning. Medicinal materials are traditionally identified by their organoleptic characteristics and other physical properties. However, the differences among related species are sometimes too minute. Chemical analyses may be affected by the physiological and the storage conditions. With the advancement of molecular biology, DNA barcoding has now become a popular means for identification and authentication of plant and animal species. We have established this DNA barcode database for users to retrieve and analyze DNA sequences of medicinal materials. This website includes DNA sequences and information and key references of the medicinal materials recorded in the Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China, American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and other related references. Relevant information of common adulterants and substitutes are also listed. This database provides a web-based platform for storage, retrieval, comparison and analysis of DNA sequences, for distinguishing medicinal materials from their common substitutes and adulterants.

    TOXNET is a cluster of databases on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, and related areas. Provided by the NLM, National Library of Medicine:

  • HSDB - Hazardous Substances Data Bank
  • IRIS - Integrated Risk Information System
  • ITER - International Toxicity Estimates for Risk
  • GENE-TOX - Genetic Toxicology (Mutagenicity)
  • CCRIS - Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System
  • TOXLINE - Toxicology Bibliographic Information

  • ChemIDplus - Chemical Synonymes, Structures and more

  • Toxics Release Inventory"  info

    TRI contains data on the estimated annual releases of toxic chemicals to the environment – air, water, soil, underground injection; amounts transferred off-site for waste treatment; and source reduction and recycling data.
    This is a NLM-database.

    The Y-Chromosome Haplotype Reference Database"  info

    The ability to identify male-specific DNA renders polymorphic Y-chromosomal sequences an invaluable addition to the standard panel of autosomal loci used in forensic genetics (Roewer 2009). Y-STR haplotyping is particularly important for sensitive typing of male DNA in mixed stains as well as for rapid assortment of biological crime scene evidence. Moreover, Y chromosomal profiling can trace back paternal lineages into the past and has thus been proven a useful tool in genealogical and kinship testing. The individuality of the male-specific part of the Y chromosome can be optimally explored by the Y-STR haplotype analysis using a set of highly variable short tandem repeat markers approved by the forensic and scientific community.
