Viscum album Genespace Database

Mistletoe

Viscum album is known for its very special life cycle, its particular biochemical composition, its unique mode of respiration and its extremely large genome. We here offer the full-length transcriptome of Viscum album, consisting of more than 39,000 distinct sequences from our recent publication. Next to the nucleotide sequences, we also offer 32,000 translated protein sequences with annotation (NCBI/Swissprot). Further information (e.g. molecular weight, IEP) can be found in the excel file.

Blast / Downloads

If you want to blast sequences against our Viscum album gene space database, you can just download the FASTA files.

1-click BLAST (for Windows)

just extract the zip file

1-click BLAST for windows

Mobirise

If you are not familiar with blast, we assembled a very simple 1-click package for windows users.

Download and extract the BLAST-Package. Just extract the downloaded zip file. (Right click -> Extract all)
It already includes the Viscum album protein database.

Add your "search.fasta": Put all your search sequences in one FASTA file. If you have them in EXCEL, you can use this tool to convert IDs+sequences into the FASTA-Format. Paste the data into a plain text file named "search.fasta" and put it in the directory with the "blast.bat"

Start the search: Execute (double click) the "blast.bat". This will create a your_results.txt which contains your BLAST results. The software will tell you when it is done searching.

Viscum album projects

Gelmap

Gelmap is a universal tool for spot visualization on a gel image (Rode et al. 2011). At the moment 2 BN/SDS PAGE of Viscum album mitochondria are accessible. One was published in Senkler et al. 2018 and was evaluated with the Arabidopsis thaliana Information resource (TAIR) due to the lack of a Viscum album database. The second was published together with our gene space in Schröder et al. 2021 and is a re-evaluation of the Gelmap of 2018 with our Viscum album gene space database. Further Gelmaps are in progress and will be published soon.

Complexomemap

Complexome profiling allows systematic analyses of protein-protein interactions in cellular or subcellular fractions. Currently a ComplexomeMap of Viscum album mitochondria is accessible. Further ComplexomeMaps are in progress.
