The HUGE protein database has been created to publicize the fruits of
our Human cDNA project at the Kazusa DNA Research Institute. In this
project, we plan to sequence and analyze long (>4 kb) human cDNAs and to
establish methods by using the sequence data how to predict the primary
structure of proteins of various biological activities. Currently, we focus
on the analysis of cDNA clones encoding particularly large
proteins (>50 kDa). The basic concept underlying our project and the
strategies employed have been described elsewhere (Ohara et al.,
1997). Our HUGE protein database contains various types of
information derived from the predicted primary structure data of newly
identified human proteins.
The HUGE protein database are expected to cover various sets of large human proteins of hitherto unidentified functions. They are likely to be involved in cellular structure/motility (such as cytoskeleton, membrane skeleton, and motor proteins), gene expression and nucleic acid metabolism, cell signaling/communication (such as cellular adhesion, signal transduction, channels, and receptors), and so on.
Flexi ORF clones and Flexi Halotag ORF clones which include the defined open reading frame are available. Please visit KOP.
As a member of OC, we started distributing the human ORF clones (OC clones) from the ORFeome collection.
Mouse homologues of KIAA and FLJ cDNA clones. Please visit Rouge.
Please visit SSR.
