Abstract The Protein Lounge Bio-Research Tools include the following eight (8) advanced bio-tools:

1) Pathway Builder -- Pathway Builder is an online application, which offers you the ultimate freedom to make your own pathways using pre-made membranes, organelles, proteins and other necessary pathway structures.

This is an ideal tool to help in the illustration of your publications.

Pathway Builder is one of the fastest and easiest methods of drawing signal transduction pathways.

Pathway Builder contains more pre-made pathway templates and illustration items than the previous versions of this tool. Pathway Builder contains all necessary pathway items to produce a pathway.

All you have to do is select the items and arrange your signal transduction pathway. There are also many pre-made pathways, which you can use as you wish.

Pathway Builder is ideal for making quick signal transduction pathways for presentation, publications, posters, etc.

2) Protein Hydroplotter -- The Protein Hydroplotter allows you to distinguish the hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions of any protein sequence. It gives you the choice of viewing Kyte-Doolittle or Hopp-Woods plots.

The plots are interactive, so you can highlight a region on the graph and the corresponding region on the sequence. This is an ideal tool for finding drug and antigenic targets of a protein.

3) Peptide Antigen Finder -- The Peptide Antigen Finder tool finds the best antigenic peptides of a protein sequence. You can enter your own protein sequence or search from Protein Lounge’s database - (available at the manufacturer’s home page).

The Peptide Antigen Finder will then screen the sequence to find all hydrophilic regions of the protein sequence.

These hydrophilic regions are further screened to select the regions which would most likely be found on the outer regions of the protein.

These peptide regions are ideal targets for antibodies or drugs.

4) Easy siRNA -- The Easy siRNA tool offers an efficient method of finding siRNA targets and cloning them online.

The tool uses the Tuschl algorithm to generate siRNA targets. All targets are screened using the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) to remove non-specific inhibition of other genes.

Once the siRNA have been found, you will have the option of selecting from a variety of siRNA vectors from many companies and cloning them.

5) Clone Easy -- Clone Easy is an online tool which allows the researcher to perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) cloning.

Enter your own sequence or select from Protein Lounge's database - (available at the manufacturer’s home page) of genes and select a wide variety of vectors from many different companies.

Clone Easy will show you a graphical view of the cloned vector and display the primer sequences required to clone into the vector.

6) Protein Vision -- Protein Vision is an online 3D protein structure visualization tool.

It contains a database of protein structures, which have been verified by the Protein Database (PDB).

The 3D structures are interactive, so you can highlight a region of the ‘protein sequence’ and view the region highlighted on the 3D structure.

7) Clean Compare -- Clean Compare is a DNA and Protein Sequence comparison tool.

It allows you to compare DNA and protein sequences. You have the option to enter your own sequence or select from the Protein Lounge list of sequences.

One of the advantages of this tool is that all of the gene/protein names are interlinked to the Protein Lounge’s protein information database containing detailed information about each sequence.

Clean Compare is based on the BLAST algorithm


8) GPCR Database -- G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) form a large superfamily of membrane proteins that modulate sensory perception, chemotaxis, neurotransmission, cell communication, and many other vital physiological events.

Characterized by their cell-surface localization and tissue-specificity, these protein receptors are the targets of 50-60% of all existing medicines including well-known -blockers and anti-histamine therapeutics.
