Proven Drug Targets Converted to Human SwissProt Accessions

This dataset is a supplementary data from “Novelty in the target landscape of the pharmaceutical industry” (2013). The listing of proven drug targets is converted to 248 human Swiss-Prot accessions.

This dataset is a selection of proven drug target lists extracted from the literature, Novelty in the target landscape of the pharmaceutical industry; as a supplementary data. The criteria for inclusion are drug target coverage for the human proteins.

There are utilities that can be explored in this dataset including the two: a) following the database links and b) comparing them for intersects (protein IDs in common) and differentials (protein IDs unique to particular lists or subsets). This can be extended to comparisons with lists that may be generated in the course of studying other published work (e.g. expression data or disease association gene candidates).

The metadata descriptions are minimal since context is provided either in the references and/or the download descriptions for the appropriate databases. The lists are Excel sheets of UniProtKB, HGNC and ChEMBL live links. These entry points should be able to get to the most from other sources.

Lists that are not UniProtKB Accessions are normalized to these (e.g. mappings of Human Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) Symbols or Entrez Gene IDs (EGID) to UniProtKB). They are then filtered to human and Swiss-Prot (i.e. any TrEMBL entries are removed) and to approved drug targets if this is an option in the original list. In such cases, lists that are hosted thus become transformations, rather than direct facsimiles, of the primary sources. Given such ID cross-mappings are not perfect; absolute correctness cannot be guaranteed. Versions, however, are supplied in good faith and the originals are available in every case.

Entry_ReportThis subsection of the ‘Entry information’ section provides a mnemonic identifier for a UniProtKB entry, but it is not a stable identifier. Each reviewed entry is assigned a unique entry name upon integration into UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot.stringunique : 1required : 1
Protein_NamesThis subsection of the Protein Names on ‘Names and Taxonomy’ section provides a list of names of the human protein, from commonly used to obsolete, to allow unambiguous identification of a protein. This subsection may also include information on the activity of the protein, such as a precise description of the catalytic mechanism of enzymes, or information about individual protein chains or functional domains contained within it, if pertinent.stringrequired : 1
