MfunGD provides a resource for annotated mouse proteins and their occurrence in protein networks. It contains cDNA and protein sequences, annotation, gene models and mapping, FunCat, UCSC Genome Viewer, SIMAP, pseudogenes (Genome Viewer Track), InterPro, and splice variants.
Protein function annotation is performed using the Functional Catalogue (FunCat) annotation scheme, which is a hierarchically structured classification system. To provide up-to-date similarity search results and InterPro domain analyses, the protein entries are interconnected with the SIMAP database. The gene models are based on the RefSeq mouse cDNAs. The work of our group is focussed on the annotation of biological systems. Therefore, results from the Mammalian Protein-Protein Interaction Database and the Comprehensive Resource of Mammalian Protein Complexes are linked to the MfunGD dataset. Links to external resources are also provided. MfunGD is implemented in GenRE, a J2EE based component oriented multi-tier architecture.

MfunGD (http://mips.gsf.de/genre/proj/mfungd/) provides a resource for annotated mouse proteins and their occurrence in protein networks. Manual annotation concentrates on proteins which are found to interact physically with other proteins. Accordingly, manually curated information from a protein-protein interaction database (MPPI) and a database of mammalian protein complexes is interconnected with MfunGD. Protein function annotation is performed using the Functional Catalogue (FunCat) annotation scheme which is widely used for the analysis of protein networks. The dataset is also supplemented with information about the literature that was used in the annotation process as well as links to the SIMAP Fasta database, the Pedant protein analysis system and cross-references to external resources. Proteins that so far were not manually inspected are annotated automatically by a graphical probabilistic model and/or superparamagnetic clustering. The database is continuously expanding to include the rapidly growing amount of functional information about gene products from mouse. MfunGD is implemented in GenRE, a J2EE-based component-oriented multi-tier architecture following the separation of concern principle.
