MorCVD: A Unified Database for Host-Pathogen Protein-Protein Interactions of Cardiovascular Diseases Related to Microbes.

ABSTRACT: Microbe induced cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are less studied at present. Host-pathogen interactions (HPIs) between human proteins and microbial proteins associated with CVD can be found dispersed in existing molecular interaction databases. MorCVD database is a curated resource that combines 23,377 protein interactions between human host and 432 unique pathogens involved in CVDs in a single intuitive web application. It covers endocarditis, myocarditis, pericarditis and 16 other microbe induced CVDs. The HPI information has been compiled, curated, and presented in a freely accessible web interface ( http://morcvd.sblab-nsit.net/About ). Apart from organization, enrichment of the HPI data was done by adding hyperlinked protein ID, PubMed, gene ontology records. For each protein in the database, drug target and interactors (same as well as different species) information has been provided. The database can be searched by disease, protein ID, pathogen name or interaction detection method. Interactions detected by more than one method can also be listed. The information can be presented in tabular form or downloaded. A comprehensive help file has been developed to explain the various options available. Hence, MorCVD acts as a unified resource for retrieval of HPI data for researchers in CVD and microbiology.
