EPConDB -- Endocrine pancreas consortium database

What you can do:
Search for information on genes expressed in pancreas.
Highlights:
  • The Endocrine Pancreas Consortium database (EPConDB)contains information of genes expressed in the developing endocrine pancreas.
  • It has constructed mouse and human cDNA libraries from adult and various stages of embryonic development of endocrine pancreas.
  • It allows users to find gene expressed in the pancreas using BLAST.
  • 2007 update:
  • EPConDB displays expression profiles for individual genes involved in diabetes, pancreatic development and beta-cell function, and information about transcripts, promoter elements and transcription factor binding sites.
  • Other datasets include semi-quantitative RT-PCR and MPSS expression studies.
  • EPConDB provides database queries and tools to examine the relationship between a gene, its transcriptional regulation, protein function and expression in pancreatic tissues.
