ABSTRACT Human cellular protein databases have been established using computer-analyzed 2D gel electrophoresis. These databases, which include information on various properties of proteins, offer a global approach to the study of regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation. Furthermore, thanks to the advent of microsequencing the databases make it possible to directly link protein and DNA information.
