We made it, and on the last day of March, we release the third version (03.2018) of the Probes and Drugs portal this year.
Besides updated compound sets (SGC Probes, Guide to Pharmacology 2018.1 etc.), we added one brand new data set, the Kinase chemogenomic set, that was extracted from the paper Progress towards a public chemogenomic set for protein kinases and a call for contributions. Concretely, only compounds that meet the criteria for KCGS inclusion were added to the set.
This month, we've also started with the direct annotation of probe-target pairs, i.e., in case, that a probe has an assigned target/targets in the data extracted from its source, this target is now highlighted by a small probe icon next to its name (see the example below for the probe I-BRD9 and its target BRD9). So far, probes from Chemical probes.org, SGC Probes and Tool compound set are annotated, more sets will come in the near future.
We hope you’ll find the new data useful. If you have any suggestions for new functions or compound sets we could include to our database, please, let us know through the contact form.
