CGD Help: Protein Information Page
The CGD Protein Information Page provides basic property, structure, and homology
information for all verified or predicted CGD proteins.
The primary information is listed in the major column on the left of the page, and includes
links to interactive displays and other data resources.
The top of the protein page provides a site-wide quick search, links to the major CGD informational resources,
and a bar with links to popular tools, such as a local BLAST search. Beneath this is a series of tabs linking to other
locus-specific information pages, including Locus Summary,
Locus History, Literature,
Gene Ontology, and
Individual sections can be expanded or collapsed (hidden) by clicking
on the small +/- icons next to the section headings.
- Standard Name and Systematic Name:
The protein names are based upon the corresponding gene names found on the Locus Summary page
(gene naming conventions are outlined in the
Gene Nomenclature Guide).
Standard protein names are non-italicized, and are derived from gene names by making the first
character uppercase, the remaining alphabetical characters lowercase,
and appending the lowercase letter "p". For example, the
protein encoded by the C. albicans gene ABC1
(systematic name orf19.3331, allele name orf19.10842) has standard name Abc1p, systematic name
Orf19.3331p, and allele name Orf19.10842p. See the CGD
Sequence Documentation Page
for more details.
A concise summary of the biological role and molecular function of the protein.
- A link to the Domains/Motifs page, which lists
conserved features in the protein.
- A thumbnail image and link to the CGD Proteome Browser,
which interactively displays conserved domains identified using the protein sequence to query the
Summary of the predicted ORF translation, including:
- Length (a.a.): the predicted full length of the translated gene product.
- Molecular Weight (Da): calculated for the predicted full-length sequence.
- A link to the Physicochemical Properties
page, which displays other properties and statistics calculated for the sequence.
- Predicted Sequence: the amino acid sequence itself, with a button to download the
sequence in FASTA format.
Provides links to CGD resources that can be used to identify homologs of the query protein:
- BLAST against other Candida sequences: Runs BLAST locally using protein sequence as query
to identify Candida homologs.
Provides links to various other databases containing the protein sequence.
