How to use the database
All proteins listed in this catalog can be found in the page “All Proteins”.
More details about the metholology used to develop this catalog and its relevance are found in the page “About”, whereas in the page “Statistics” you can find differnet statistics about the catalog.
Also, a specific protein search could be performed by typing the name of the protein in the search bar in the home page (no category selection is needed). Be aware that often a protein is known by other different names (aliases). In case you can´t find the protein you are looking for, try to search for other aliases of that protein. You can find the list of aliases for your protein in databases such as GeneCards (https://www.genecards.org/).
All the listed proteins are organized in categories. The category section in the search bar is set by default with “All categories”, which includes all the proteins listed in the database. If you are interested in narrowing your search, you can use the category section. For example, you can find all the RNA-binding proteins by selecting the “RBP” category. Alternatively, you can search for all the proteins that are associated with pathologies by selecting the category “OMIM disease”.
All the listed proteins are tagged. These tags include the stress stimuli or cell type used in the study describing the recruitment of that protein to stress granules, such as U-2 OS cells, sodium arsenite, HeLa cells, among others. You can easily access the list of all the proteins with a specific tag by scrolling down to “explore by tags” on the home page.
In the specific page for each protein, you find a brief description of the protein, important details of the protein, the categories and tags of the protein, and the results of a transcriptome analysis for several neurodegenerative diseases Alzheimer, Parkinson, Huntington and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (“Expression data”).
