Molecular Connections’ Expert Curated Interactions on Alzheimer Disease Pathways Compendium of Alzforum
Molecular Connections' expert curated pathway compendium on Alzheimer disease in the Alzheimer Research Forum, a pioneering biomedical web community.
Bangalore, India, October 08, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Indian Life Sciences Informatics Company, Molecular Connections announced today, the inclusion of their expert curated pathway compendium on Alzheimer disease in the Alzheimer Research Forum, a pioneering biomedical web community.
This Pathways Compendium provides an index of Alzheimer disease pathway models developed with the help of NetPro™ –a knowledgebase of protein–protein & protein–small molecules interaction developed by researchers at Molecular Connections Private Limited.
Alzheimer's disease is one of the most prevalent age-related neurodegenerative disorders. The pathogenic evolution of the disease is not well understood. Currently, only symptomatic therapies for the disease are available and disease-modifying therapies are yet to come. NetPro™ has a significant repertoire of molecular interactions, a subset of which has interactions pertaining to molecules implicated in Alzheimer disease. The dataset may enable better understanding of the pathogenic processes and could help in identifying new targets and therapeutic agents.
-NetPro™ covers more than 300,000 expert curated and annotated protein-protein interactions.
-Since it is an expert hand curated database, it provides a comprehensive and accurate account of all known protein interactions published in literature till date.
-All molecules in NetPro™ are linked to public Identifiers and control vocabulary, facilitating ready integration of interactions information with any proprietary or in-house databases.
The Alzheimer Research Forum is a Pioneering Biomedical Web Community. Founded 13 years ago when the Web was still in its infancy, the "Alzforum" has more than 5,000 registered members and is familiar to most Alzheimer scientists in the world.
