  1. Research

    FunClust: a web server for the identification of structural motifs in a set of non-homologous protein structures

    The occurrence of very similar structural motifs brought about by different parts of non homologous proteins is often indicative of a common function. Indeed, relatively small local structures can mediate bind...

    CellExcite: an efficient simulation environment for excitable cells

    Brain, heart and skeletal muscle share similar properties of excitable tissue, featuring both discrete behavior (all-or-nothing response to electrical activation) and continuous behavior (recovery to rest foll...

    Gene expression profile of peripheral blood mononuclear cells in response to HIV-VLPs stimulation

    Baculovirus-expressed HIV-1 Pr55gag Virus-Like Particles (HIV-VLPs) induce maturation and activation of monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MDDCs) with a production of Th1- and Th2-specific cytokines.

    ISOL@: an Italian SOLAnaceae genomics resource

    Present-day ‘-omics’ technologies produce overwhelming amounts of data which include genome sequences, information on gene expression (transcripts and proteins) and on cell metabolic status. These data represent ...

    In silico docking of urokinase plasminogen activator and integrins

    Urokinase, its receptor and the integrins are functionally associated and involved in regulation of cell signaling, migration, adhesion and proliferation. No structural information is available on this potenti...

    Time-course analysis of genome-wide gene expression data from hormone-responsive human breast cancer cells

    Microarray experiments enable simultaneous measurement of the expression levels of virtually all transcripts present in cells, thereby providing a ‘molecular picture’ of the cell state. On the other hand, the ...
