1 May A Database of human biological pathways Steve Jupe -

2 May Rationale – Journal information Nature 407(6805):770-6.The Biochemistry of Apoptosis. “Caspase-8 is the key initiator caspase in the death-receptor pathway. Upon ligand binding, death receptors such as CD95 (Apo-1/Fas) aggregate and form membrane- bound signalling complexes (Box 3). These complexes then recruit, through adapter proteins, several molecules of procaspase-8, resulting in a high local concentration of zymogen. The induced proximity model posits that under these crowded conditions, the low intrinsic protease activity of procaspase-8 (ref. 20) is sufficient to allow the various proenzyme molecules to mutually cleave and activate each other (Box 2). A similar mechanism of action has been proposed to mediate the activation of several other caspases, including caspase-2 and the nematode caspase CED-3 (ref. 21).” How can I access the pathway described here and reuse it?

3 May Nature Oct 12;407(6805): The biochemistry of apoptosis. Rationale - Figures A picture paints a thousand words… but…. Just pixels Omits key details Assumes Fact or Hypothesis?

4 May Reactome is… Free, online, open-source curated database of pathways and reactions in human biology Authored by expert biologists, maintained by Reactome editorial staff (curators) Mapped to cellular compartment

5 May Extensively cross-referenced Tools for data analysis – Pathway Analysis, Expression Overlay, Species Comparison, Biomart… Used to infer orthologous events in 20 other species Reactome is…

20 May Tutorial

21 May Front Page Sidebar Main text Navigation bar

22 May Exercise 1

23 May The Pathway Browser Species selector Diagram Key Sidebar Pathway Diagram Panel Details Panel (hidden) Zoom/move toolbar Thumbnail

24 May Pathways tab – pathway hierarchy Pathway Reaction Black-box

25 May Exercise 2 From the homepage, search for ‘Notch signaling’. Click on the top pathway hit. This will open it in the Pathway Browser. Ignoring the diagram for now, look at the Pathways tab on the left. 1.How many sub-pathways does this pathway have? 2.How many reactions are in the first of these sub-pathways? 3.What reaction follows Notch 2 precursor transport to Golgi? Hint: If it’s not visible, open the Details pane at the bottom of the page by clicking on the blue triangle.

26 May The Pathway Browser - Pathway Diagrams Boxes are proteins, protein sets, mixed sets or complexes. Ovals are small molecules (or sets of) Green boxes are proteins or sets, blue are complexes.
