HumanPSDTM release 2019.3 is out now!


The Human Proteome Survey Database (HumanPSDTM) is a catalog of proteins and their complexes from human cells, plus their orthologs from mouse and rat sources.
Its main focus is on the association of human proteins with diseases as well as on their potential use as biomarkers.

Drugs targeting human proteins are reported. In addition, information can be retrieved on the molecular functions, biological roles, localization, and modifications of proteins, expression patterns across cells, tissues, organs, and tumors, consequences of gene mutations in mice, and the physical and regulatory interactions between proteins and genes. The TRANSPATH® database on signal transduction and metabolic pathways is an integral part of HumanPSDTM.

Biomarker / disease associations

A tabular summary of literature-derived relationships between human genes and gene products with human diseases is given.
These associations are clearly sorted according to their type, e.g. whether a gene/protein has a causal relationship with a disease to develop, or whether it is merely correlative, etc.
Disease association MYC

Tabulated summary of disease associations of the human MYC gene.

New release HumanPSD 2019.2

PROTEOME™ (HumanPSD™+TRANSPATH®) release 2019.2

The Human Proteome Survey Database (HumanPSD™) with focus on human proteins as disease
biomarkers and drug targets contains these new features:

  • More Clinical Trial data
    New data from and manual curation by experts have increased the number
    of Clinical Trial-Drug assignments to 204,740, leading to a total of 401,836 CT-Disease-Drug
  • GO cellular compartment annotation from the Human Protein Atlas
    Intracellular location data of human proteins from the Human Protein Atlas has been
    integrated as 12,073 observations using Gene Ontology Cellular Compartment terms.
    The TRANSPATH® database on mammalian signal transduction and metabolic pathways contains
    these new data features:
  • Increase in numbers of reactions
    18,087 new binding reactions between proteins in human or mouse have been added,
    among them e.g. reactions of membrane-bound human GPCRs with other membraneous or
    cytoplasmic proteins.
    5,071 existing reactions were updated with additional experimental evidences from primary
  • Improved pathway search results
    Pathway search results now come with the number of distinct nodes (proteins and their
    post-translationally modified forms, genes, miRNAs, and complexes) involved in the
    respective pathway. This should help with assessing the size of networks in a result list.

The basic information unit is a “locus report”, which summarizes the existing knowledge about the product(s) of a gene. It is part of a hierarchy, with individual proteins (isoforms such as splice variants) encoded by a gene at a level under the locus report, and summarizing features of the orthologs of human, mouse and rat origin at a higher level.
