About Human Gene and Protein Database (HGPD)

The entire human genome sequence has been determined by international project teams (1). In the post-genomic research era, one of the most essential subjects involves functional and structural analysis of gene products (proteins). To obtain full-length cDNA clones in hand is one of the key issues in such studies of functional genomics. Projects such as the Japanese FLJ project supported by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) (2-4), the Kazusa long cDNA project supported by Chiba prefecture (a local government) (5, 6), the US Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) program (7), German (8), Chinese (9) and other cDNA projects, have been implemented to isolate as many full-length cDNAs and as in a high quality as possible (For a review, see reference 10). To build the infrastructure to allow systematic and comprehensive expression of human proteins, not only the availability of full-length cDNA clones, but also a versatile system for making use of these clones is vital. The Gateway cloning system (Invitrogen, CA, USA) is based on such versatile expression vectors (11). We have therefore adopted this system and constructed human Gateway entry clones from full-length cDNAs (12). For conversion to Gateway entry clones, we first determined an open reading frame (ORF) region in each cDNA meeting the criteria (13,14). Those ORF regions were PCR-amplified utilizing selected resource cDNAs as templates. All the details of the construction and utilization of entry clones will be published elsewhere (12). Amino acid and nucleotide sequences of an ORF for each cDNA and sequence differences of Gateway entry clones from source cDNAs are presented in the "GW: Gateway Summary" window (Fig. 18). Utilizing those clones with a very efficient cell-free protein synthesis system featuring wheat germ (15,16), we have produced a large number of human proteins in vitro. Expressed proteins were detected in almost all cases (12). Proteins in both total and supernatant fractions are shown in the "PE: Protein Expression" window (Fig. 19). In addition, we have determined subcellular localizations of human proteins fused with the fluorescent protein in HeLa cells (17). The image data are shown in the "SL: Subcellular Localization" window (Fig. 20). These biological data are presented on the frame of cDNA clusters in the Human Gene and Protein Database (HGPD, http://www.HGPD.jp) (18). To build the basic frame of HGPD, sequences of FLJ full-length cDNAs and others deposited in public databases (Human ESTs, RefSeq, Ensembl, MGC, etc.) are assembled onto the genome sequences (NCBI Build 35 (UCSC hg17)).

In the NEDO full-length human cDNA sequencing project (FLJ-PJ), in addition to about 30,000 human full-length cDNAs (FLJ cDNAs) (2), about 1,430,000 5'- and 3'-end sequences (ESTs) of full-length cDNAs were deposited to DDBJ/GenBank/EMBL (3). These were obtained from cDNA libraries consisting of mRNAs for about 100 kinds of human tissues and cells constructed using the oligo-capping method. The majority of the insert cDNA sizes were over 2 kb and the full-length rate of 5'-end was more than 90% (19). By developing efficient search and evaluation systems for splicing variant (SV) cDNAs, more than10,000 important splicing variant cDNAs have been obtained. Then the FLJ Human cDNA Database (ver. 3.0) displaying those data has been constructed and will be up shortly (19). Only the number of SV cDNAs, which is 5,020 in total, is presented in the "others in d box" of the "C1: cDNA Summary 1" window in HGPD (Fig. 15). Most of those SV cDNAs have also been converted to Gateway entry clones.

*) The majority of analysis data for cDNA sequences in HGPD are shared with the FLJ Human cDNA Database (http://flj.hinv.jp/) constructed as a human cDNA sequence analysis database focusing on mRNA varieties caused by variations in transcription start site (TSS) and splicing.

Information Overview

A summary is presented all of information on the cluster to which the queried cDNA clone is belongs in an "Information Overview" window (Fig. 10). All data related to all cDNA members clustered in the query are shown. Almost all links used in HGPD are connected through this page.

Fig. 10: Information Overview. (a) The user can return to the top page by pressing the "HGPD" logo. (b) Another search can be started by selecting ID or Keyword on the menu, and (c) entering the ID or keyword into the textbox above without returning to the top page. (d) Locus: A serial cluster number is presented. For details, see Genome mapping and clustering (13, 14). Locus number "chr1+5382" is presented as an example, where chr1, + and 5382 mean the human chromosome number, specification of the strand (plus (5'->3' strand in the direction of p arm to q arm) or minus (5'->3' strand in the direction of q arm to p arm)) on which clusters have been assembled, and the cluster number as counted consecutively from the 5' end of each strand of chr.1, respectively. L1 and L2 are linked to "Locus View 1" and "Locus View 2 - one direction", respectively. (e) Gene Symbol: The Gene Symbol appeared in the Entrez Gene database. (f) Accession No. The registered ID in the public database, such as DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank accession number or Ensembl transcript number, is described for each cDNA clone. As the newest version at the freezing date is usually adopted, no version number is displayed. (g) cDNA Info. Buttons "C1" and "C2" are linked to "C1: cDNA Summary 1" and "C2: cDNA Summary 2", respectively. Information on cDNA clones including sequences and homology search results is presented on these pages. (h) FLJ ID. The FLJ ID number of the FLJ cDNAs is shown. Any cDNA clone that has not been assigned an FLJ number is designated as "-". FLJ clones were consequently turned out to have 3 kinds of IDs: "DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Accession No."; "FLJ ID", and "Primary Clone ID" (See relation table). (i) Sequence ID. For an authentic FLJ cDNA clone that holds a primary clone ID, the ID is designated with the prefix "C-" (cf. "F-" and "R-", showing 5'- and 3'-onepass sequences of FLJ cDNAs, respectively). For cDNA sequences other than FLJ sequences, an accession number for DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank is provided. (j) Protein Info. Several types of data can be retrieved through this window, including Gateway entry clones and protein expression. And the inclusion region of open reading frame (ORF) is easily indicated in a red line. It is note that if some locus are hit in "Information Overview", the position of N-/C- terminal of ORF region of each locus is actually different. (k) Note. A note of "Protein Info" is shown. See the detail of "Note".


Linkage of Windows

As to linkage of windows of HGPD, some buttons open new windows and other buttons display a picture in the current window. Windows for C1, C2, GW, and PE which show various pictures focusing on the same cDNA clone open in the same window, as relationship is essentially one vs. one. Other windows such as "Information Overview", L1, L2, and L2' that describe multiple cDNA clones or clusters will open a new window when transferred, as translocation is usually one vs. multiple (irreversible).

Fig. 11: Linkage of windows. "Opening a new window" and loading in the current window are indicated by thick and thin arrows, respectively. The flow from the "Information Overview" window, which is the central hub in HGPD displayed in Figure 2, is indicated by red arrows. PE is linked with the "Information Overview" page through a button in GW, which is indicated by dashed arrows. Movement within C1, C2, GW and PE will replace the previous page without opening a new window, preventing increase of the number of opened windows.


L1: Locus View 1

The genome mapping results for a queried locus are illustrated.

Fig. 12: L1: Locus View 1. Genome mapping of (I) ESTs and (II) Full-length cDNAs without ESTs. Setting buttons are located in the lower part (IIIA and IIIB). EST (I and IIIA) and full-length (II and IIIB) windows including setting ones are displayed in the black and gray-background, respectively. (a) 5'-ESTs of FLJ cDNAs, 3'-ESTs of FLJ cDNAs and other public ESTs are shown in red, green and white, respectively. These colors can be changed by the button to "FLJ OnePass: red, public ESTs: white" shown in (h). (b) Sequence ID. (c) C1 and C2 are linked with "C1: cDNA Summary 1" window and "C2: cDNA Summary 2" window, respectively. (d) ORF information. ORF regions are designated in relation to the frame of a selected reference ORF. (e) Regions of domains and motifs predicted by Pfam, PROSITE, PSORT, SignalP and SOSUI can be presented. Detailed data are presented in the lower part of "C2: cDNA Summary 2" (Fig. 10B). (f) Intron setting button. As intronic regions only can be removed using the "compressed" setting, splicing-variant cDNAs or unspliced intron regions can be well analyzed. (g) Sorting of cDNAs can be performed according to several conditions. Genome Upstream: Sequences that hold further upstream regions are piled up from the bottom; Genome Downstream: Sequences that hold further downstream regions are piled up from the bottom. (h) Color setting of ESTs. 5'/3': 5'-ESTs(FLJ), red; 3'-ESTs(FLJ), green; public ESTs, white. OnePass/EST: FLJ OnePass, red; public ESTs, white. (i) Sequence ID of ESTs can be shown, although space between each EST at region (I) is expanded. (j) Abscissa scale. Currently only available only 1. (k) Setting buttons for Pfam, PROSITE, PSORT, SignalP and SOSUI. (l) Reference cDNA that determines the standard ORF can be selected.


L2: Locus View 2 - one direction

A bird's eye view of clusters is presented. Cluster chr1+5382 harboring a queried sequence is highlighted by a green line. Other clusters are shown in red lines. In each cluster, the 5'- and 3'- most distal ends are tied by a line with arrows at both boundaries.

Fig. 13: L2: Locus View 2 - one direction. (a) Selection of centered locus. Locus is ( as default) specified by centering on the entered ID. Setting the number of (b) upstream or (c) downstream side loci. (d) Polarity of the strand. The 5'- to 3'- strand in the direction of p arm to q arm is defined as "Plus". Cluster number (chr1+5382 in this case) including the selected cDNA (sequence ID) is represented by a green line. The 5'- and 3'-terminal ends of this cluster are tied with a line. (e) For displaying the clusters of both strands (see L2').


L2: Locus View 2 - both direction

Clicking a "Show Both Strands" button in an L2 picture (Fig. 13) opens an "L2': Locus View 2 - both directions" window. Although the boundary of L2' picture is the same as L1, all the clusters whose any part is included are displayed. Once an "L2'- both directions" window opens, one can open any window by specifying a chromosome number and nucleotide positions (current maximum number of clusters which can be open for both strands is 50, respectively). Therefore it would be said that L2' has some search function (Fig. 11).

Fig. 14: L2: Locus View 2 - both direction. Regions of clusters mapped on both strands are shown by red lines. Cluster numbers for plus and minus are counted from the distal side of the p arm and q arm, respectively. An identical or similar number of clusters on the plus and minus strands therefore does not indicate proximity of these clusters.


C1: cDNA Summary 1

Sequence ID, locus ID, numbers and kinds of cDNA sequences included in a cluster and alignment data of the selected cDNA clone are presented.

Fig. 15: C1: cDNA Summary 1. (a) Sequence ID. (b) Primary Clone ID: The initial 3-5 characters stand for names of cells or tissues from which mRNAs were purified (For details, see a complete list). (c) Locus ID. (d) SV-PJ cDNA. SV-PJ stands for Splicing Variant Project, one of the sub-projects of the NEDO "Functional analysis of human proteins" project. (e) OnePass: The number of FLJ ESTs. 5'(F-), 5'-ESTs; 3'(R-), 3'-ESTs.


C2: cDNA Summary 2

In the upper part of "cDNA Summary 2", amino acid and nucleotide sequences are represented. Red characters in nucleotide sequences indicate the ORF region.

Fig. 16A: Upper part of "C2: cDNA Summary 2". (a) Primary Clone ID. See Fig. 15(b). (b) Stop codon: S and L stand for presence and absence of Stop codon, respectively. (c) and (d) Refer to reference 21.

Fig. 16B: Lower part of "C2: cDNA Summary 2". Functional motifs and domains, leader sequences and transmembrane domains were inferred using BLAST, Pfam, PROSITE, PSORT, SignalP, SOSUI and GO.


GW: Gateway Summary

The Gateway cloning system (Invitrogen, CA, USA) is based on versatile expression vectors (11). We have therefore adopted this system and constructed human Gateway entry clones named as Human Proteome Expression Resource (HUPEX) from full-length cDNAs. Detail informations described in our paper in Nature methods, 2008 (12).

Fig. 17: (A) The structure of human Gateway entry clones. The base plasmid is pDONR201 (Invitrogen) and the attL1-sites (blue), SD-Kz (black) and ORF (pink) is cloned. There are two ORF-types, one is N-type harboring stop codon at the end of ORF, another is F-type without stop codon (replaced to Tyr or Cys). attL1 and attL2, Gateway recombination sites; SD, Shine-Dalgano sequence; Kz, Kozak sequence; ORF, open reading frame; T1 and T2, transcriptional terminators; Kanamycin, kanamycin resistant gene. (B) Gateway system. An expression clone to be utilized for expression is produced by recombination of an entry clone and a destination vector.

Fig. 18: GW: "Gateway Summary". Sequence information of the Gateway entry clone and summary of experimental or prediction results obtained by using the clone are presented. (a) Button for switching to the another ORF-type clone. (b) Amino acid and nucleotide sequences of human ORF regions of the clone. (c) Deviations from the reference sequence. (d) Link button to the window to view detailes of experimental ('Experiment' button) or prediction ('Prediction' button) results. (e) Protein expression system used in the experiment. (f) Destination vector used for construction of the expression clone. (g) Fused tag with the recombinant protein and the location. (h) Result of SDS-PAGE analysis for protein expression and solubility. T, total fraction; S, supernatant fraction; 1, detected; 0, not-detected. (i) Link button to the submission window of ESPRESSO which is a sequence-based predictor for estimating protein expression and solubility. (j) Host cell used for the subcellular localization analysis. (k) Intracellular compartment(s) of the recombinant protein. There are 12 major compartmentation categories as follows: 'Cytoplasm', 'Nucleus', 'Cytoplasm + Nucleus', 'Endoplasmic reticulum', 'Golgi apparatus', 'Endoplasmic reticulum + Golgi apparatus', 'Plasma membrane', 'Endoplasmic reticulum + Golgi apparatus + Plasma membrane', 'Cytoplasmic vesicles', 'Mitochondria', 'Peroxisome', 'Cytoskeleton'. Some proteins which could not be classified into these categories were assigned into 'Others'. In the cases that the proteins belonged to more than two categories in a single cell and different categories between independent cells, they were assigned 'Bilocation' and 'Mixed', respectively.


PE: Protein Expression

The SDS-PAGE patterns of expressed proteins are displayed.

Fig. 19: "PE: Protein Expression". (a) Theoretical molecular weight of the tagged recombinant protein. (b) Fused tag with the recombinant protein and the location. (c) Link button to the window to indicate the protocol for this experiment. (d) M, Marker. (e) Number, lane number in this SDS-PAGE analysis; T, total fraction; S, supernatant fraction.

There are 12 major compartmentation categories as follows: 'Cytoplasm', 'Nucleus', 'Cytoplasm + Nucleus', 'Endoplasmic reticulum', 'Golgi apparatus', 'Endoplasmic reticulum + Golgi apparatus', 'Plasma membrane', 'Endoplasmic reticulum + Golgi apparatus + Plasma membrane', 'Cytoplasmic vesicles', 'Mitochondria', 'Peroxisome', 'Cytoskeleton'. Some proteins which could not be classified into these categories were assigned into 'Others'. In the cases that the proteins belonged to more than two categories in a single cell and different categories between independent cells, they were assigned 'Bilocation' and 'Mixed', respectively. (b) Link button to the window to indicate the protocol for this experiment.


Note of Protein Info

In genome mapping for each cDNA sequence, some cDNA sequences are mapped more than two locus on human genome sequences. In this case, we take notice of ORF region (Gatway entry clone) only as "Note of Protein Info". In HGPD, there are two of major mapping patterns, and each pattern is named "Chimeric", "Duplicated" and "Unmapping", respectively. And "C", "D" and "*" are displayed at the cloumn "Note" of "Information Overview", respectively (Fig. 21, 22 and 23). In "Note" of "Protein Info", although each ORF region mapped on human genome suquence is evaluated now, other evaluation about "Protein Info" will be performed in the future.

Fig. 21: "C". A part of ORF region of cDNA sequence(a) is mapped on human gene sequence (Locus (A)). And the other part of ORF region of cDNA sequence(a) is mapped on human genome sequence (Locus (B)). In this case, both "Protein Info" of Gateway entry clone in Locus (A) and Locus (B) are chimeric, and "C" is displayed at the both columns of "Note".

Fig. 22: "D". An ORF region of cDNA sequence(b) is mapped on each of different human genome suquence (Locus (C) and Locus (D)). In this case, both "Protein Info" of Gateaway entry clone in Locus (C) and Locus (D) are duplicated, and "D" is displayed at the both columns of "Note".

Fig. 23: "*". An ORF region of cDNA sequence(c) is unmapped on human genome suquence. In this case, "Protein Info" of Gateaway entry clone in Locus (E) is not detected, and "*" is displayed at the column of "Note". Some ORF region of cDNA sequence(c), however, is mapped on human genome sequence at another locus (not Locus(E)). About this, HGPD has no information. Please confirm it by blast search and so on.
