Overview: The Natural Antisense Transcripts Database (NATsDB) is a repository of natural antisense transcripts (NATs) in eleven species (human, mouse, rat, fly, sea squirt, cow, frog, chicken, zebrafish, worm and dog). NATsDB also includes information of NATs overlapping and non-overlapping with exonic regions (in some cases in bidirectional genes), poly(A) signals and tails, PhastCons conservation, conserved homologues in other species, repeat elements, EST expression profiles and OMIM disease association.
Search Methods:
  • Similarity: query your sequence using the BLAST program.
  • Keyword: search by type of NAT, mRNA/EST accession number, gene or OMIM name.
  • TAG: search by species and coding potential.
  • Genomic Location: search by organism and chromosome coordinate.
Source: In house pipeline based on UniGene, FANTOM3, GoldenPath/PhastCons score and chromosome mapping of mRNA/EST.
Information Source: Experimental, In silico annotation.
Information Content: Annotation, Antisense transcript, Biological signal, Condition, Disease, EST, Expression, Localization, mRNA, Organ, Repeat, Sense/Antisense, Tissue, Transcripts, Tumor.
