Axcell s Protein Data Folded into Biomax Genome Database

SAVANNAH, GA Sept. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Biomax and Axcell launched an integrated human genome database, which includes AxCell's ProChart protein interaction data, at the GSAC conference here yesterday.


Axcell, a Newtown, PA subsidiary of Cytogen, has collected experimental data on the binding affinity and overall interaction of over 4,000 proteins in its database, which includes 12,000 binding reports of peptides in the WW, PDZ, and SH3 domains.


The integration of this information into Biomax's database coincides with the launch of version 3.1 of the database, which also includes the entire mouse genome and comparative data on the Fugu rubripes genome, as well as extended search capabilities. It was developed at Biomax's Munich headquarters.
