HumanPSDTM release 2017.2 is available 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™+ TRANSPATH® (PROTEOME™) release 2017.2


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

  • Integration of new data on clinical trials (Increase of CT-Disease-Drug assignments from 146,605 to 227,170 due to inclusion of new data as well as improved mapping)

The TRANSPATH® database on mammalian signal transduction and metabolic pathways contains these new data features:

  • 4,589 additional miRNA family entries according to TargetScanHuman release 7.1, allowing the transformation of 24,488 miRNA–target gene reactions from experimental evidence to semantic level

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.
