NeuroMouse Database

Toolbook(tm) based, interactive graphical database which provides structural, molecular, and genetic information on the adult murine nervous system; and its relevance to human neurobiology. This resource is primarily designed as a platform for users to interact, each sharing knowledge on their own area of expertise, which is compiled to a master database. This hypertext atlas presently comprises more than 1000 pages and is designed to provide a flexible integrated resource for the description and discussion of all forms mammalian neurologic data. Version 4.0 of the NeuroMouse program extends the program's basic framework to include a number of areas in modern molecular neurobiology. This system provides an integrated resource for the characterization and description of mammalian neurological data. Major divisions include: Neural Atlas, Molecular Atlas, Genetics/Surgical Lesion Atlas. Neuromouse has been integrated into our strain-specific three dimensional MRI and surgical atlases of the murine CNS. Database contents: Neural Atlas: - Rotational representation of the murine brain. - Neural structures: visual and alphabetic point and click index of neural structures, pathways and systems. - Brain atlas:photographic serial sections in the coronal, sagittal, and horizontal planes (average plate distance - 300 um). Physical brain distances are also provided as are meta-index grids to allow rapid movement between different planes and regions. # Catalog of primary and immortalized neural cells indexed to relevant neural structures. Molecular Atlas: - Index of neurotransmitters: Acetylcholine, GABA, Glutamate, Aspartate, Glycine, Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, Serotonin (synthesis, distribution, degradation, molecular modules, receptors, subunits, agonists, antagonists, gene structure, localization, physical properties and transgenics are indicated for each item). - Index of neurotrophins / neurokines: NGF, BDNF, NT-3, NT-4/5, CNTF, LIF, Onostain M, IL-6, GDNF, FGF's, S100b (ligand, receptors, expression pattern, physical properties, homologous factors, transgenics/knockouts, chromosomal location, effects of agent, and effects of factors on agent are indicated for each item). - Index of additional neural agents: Bcl-2, TNF/Fas, TGF-beta, P53/Rb, PDGF, EGF family (ligand, receptor, expression patterns, physical properties, homologous factors, transgenics/ knockouts, chromosomal location, effects of agent, effects of factors on agent are indicated for each item). - Molecular biology: Molecular biology of important neural genes with integrated l links, plus selected neural topics (ex. programmed cell death, inducible gene systems, protein motifs, neural gene elements, and selected signal transduction pathways). Genetics Atlas: - Lesion paradigms: Index of common neuronal structural and chemical lesion paradigms. - Selected procedures: description of common neurosurgical, cell tracing, culturing and laboratory procedures. - Neurologic syndromes: Index of important human neurologic syndromes and appropriate animals models. - Neural mutant database: Index and description of naturally occurring and genetically modified murine neurologic mutations; including pages on double knockout animals. Interactive maps of each murine chromosome and human syntenic maps.
