The ROUGE protein database is a sister database of
database which has accumulated the results of comprehensive sequence
analysis of human long cDNAs (KIAA cDNAs).
The ROUGE protein database has been created to publicize the information
obtained from mouse homologues of the KIAA cDNAs (mKIAA cDNAs).
Since KIAA genes were characterized as unknown genes at least at the time of being sequenced, little is known about their biological functions. To understand physiological roles of KIAA genes in human, we expect that functional characterization using a model animal makes a great contribution of exploration of physiological functions. In this respect, we selected mouse as the model mammal, and started cloning cDNAs for mouse homologues of KIAA genes.
