Clone ID
NCBI Accession No.


A cDNA library, enriched for clones up-regulated during the first four days of cornea-lens transdifferentiation (CLT) in Xenopus laevis, was prepared as described in Henry et al., 2002 (see also Walter et al., 2004 and Malloch et al., 2009). The searchable database includes accession numbers, sequence information, putative identities, developmental in situ hybridization patterns and other information about the clones recovered from various screens of the CLT subtracted library.

About this Search

Use this page to search for specific clones, or to locate groups of clones based on specific search criteria. Your results will be displayed as a table of hits, with links to more information on each clone.

Please Note: Many of the ESTs contained in this database (Original FASTA file can be downloaded here ) were extended using various Xenopus laevis EST databases. Contigs of these ESTs were assembled and a FASTA file containing the extended, non-redundant sequences was compiled (Extended FASTA file can also be downloaded here ). Identities of clones contained in this database were based on the extended sequence data (when available). The original FASTA sequences are shown for each clone on this website.

About the Search Criteria

Clone ID. The Clone ID is expressed as a letter followed by a three-digit number, for example "J026." Be sure to use a three-digit number. For example, "B4" will not return a valid result, but "B004" will. Use this search field only if you are seeking a specific clone by name.

NCBI Accession Number. The NCBI accession number corresponds to the Expressed Sequence Tags database (dbEST). See www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov for more information.

Keyword Search. Use the keyword search field to find specific clones or related groups based on key terms.

This database was assembled with the help of the following individuals:
Jeffrey Haas and Thom Uebele (Office of Information Technology for Life Sciences at Illinois);
Nazia Alvi, Maria Carinato, Lisa Fukui, Jonathan Henry, Verity Johnson, Erica Malloch, Kim Perry, Jason Wever and Adam Wolfe (Henry Lab members).

This research was supported by NIH/NEI research grant EY09844.
