Today, a novel map of all proteins secreted to human blood is described. The paper by Uhlen et al. entitled "The Human Secretome" is published in the journal Science Signaling and provides a first comprehensive annotation of all proteins secreted by the human cells. In addition, an analysis of the concentrations of the proteins circulating in the human blood is described. This map provides a unique resource to study human biology and diseases, in particular for immune-based research and efforts to develop new, effective treatments in oncology and autoimmune diseases...Read more


The Human Blood Atlas launched

A new Blood Atlas - a resource for exploration of blood cells and proteins - has been launched, as part of the open access Human Protein Atlas, in which the proteins in human blood cell types are described together with a comprehensive analysis of all proteins predicted to be secreted from human cells ("the secretome"). The new atlas provides a unique resource for the study of human biology and diseases, in particular for immune-based research and efforts to develop new, effective treatments in oncology and autoimmune diseases...Read more


A new Metabolic Atlas launched

A new Metabolic Atlas has been launched as part of the open access Human Protein Atlas program, allowing researchers to explore the expression of biochemical pathways across human tissues. The new resource leverages the most extensive mapping of human metabolism to date, with biochemical information and connectivity for more than 13,000 reactions, 4,000 unique compounds, and 3,500 genes...Read more


A new Brain Atlas launched

A new Brain Atlas is launched showing for the first time an integrated view of the proteins located to the different regions of the human, mouse and pig brain. The regional expression in these three mammalian brains have been profiled and the analysis includes 1,710 human brain samples, 119 pig brain samples and 67 mouse brain samples. The new database provides many insights of biological relevance for the human brain biology and disease...Read more
