Search by Molecules
A user may search XTalkDB for crosstalking pathway pairs by the mediating molecules. The search box provides a dropdown of a list of molecules contained in XTalkDB. The user may select one or more molecules from this dropdown to query the database. The results will depend on the number of molecules selected.
- One molecule: XTalkDB will return records for all pathway pairs with which the query molecule mediates the crosstalk.
- Two or more molecules: XTalkDB will return records for all pathway pairs with which at least one of the query molecules mediates the crosstalk.
XTalkDB uses partial string matches when querying by molecules. For example, a query for 'VEGF' will return results for both 'VEGFA', 'VEGFB' and 'VEGFC'.
