Topic 1: Search hormone-related Arabidopsis genes [ back ]

The overview of hormone-related Arabidopsis genes is shown on the home page. You can also search them by gene name or gene description (on Keyword Search-->Gene page), by hormones (on Keyword Search-->Gene page), by gene sequences (on Sequence Search-->BLAST page), and browse all genes (on Browse-->All genes ).

1) Search genes by gene name or gene description [ back ]

Take IAA3 (INDOLE-3-ACETIC ACID 3) as an example, you can either a) choose "Gene name" as query type and then input its gene name (either IAA3 or AT1G04240 is okay, case insensitive), or b) choose "Gene description" as query type and then input "INDOLE-3-ACETIC ACID 3". The result page contains 8 parts:

Part 1: is a concise table listing gene's related hormones, types of evidence, functional category, gene description and associated pubmed ID.

Part 2: is basic gene information, including locus name, alias, gene description, gene sequences, gene ontology annotation retrived from TAIR database and pathway information retreived from KEGG database.

Part 3: lists mutants associated with this gene.

Part 4: is a graphical display of expression levels of this gene in various microarray datasets.

Part 5: Predicted MiRNA site and sequence information of the gene.

Part 6: genetic interaction between this gene and hormone related genes by clicking the AGI number will link to the related gene and by clicking pubmed number will link to the published evidence.

Part 7: Orthologue gene in other plants.

Part 8: cross-links to other protein databases.

2) Search genes by hormones [ back ]

The second form on Keyword Search-->Gene page allows you to search genes that related to one or more hormones according to various types of evidence.

STEP 1:select one or more hormones. If multiple hormones are selected, only genes related to all selected hormones will be returned.

STEP 2: select one or more evidences.

STEP 3: define whether return "intersection" or "union" of results from multiple evidences. The result is all the genes that match your query, and grouped by hormones.

3) Search genes by gene sequences [ back ]

Go to Sequence Search-->BLAST page, then submit your sequences in fasta format to search hormone-related genes (supported by genetic evidence and GO annotation evidence) which with high similarity to your querys.

4) Browse all hormone-related genes in PHD [ back ]

You can browse all hormone-related genes (supported by genetic evidence and GO annotation evidence) on Browse-->All genes page.
