Mutations in intermediate filament genes are responsible for a range of diverse human disorders, including forms of skin blistering, muscular dystrophy, cardiomyopathy and premature ageing syndromes. Expression of these genes, and their small number of alternative splice products, is highly tissue-specific. It is now known, from studies on the human diseases, that intermediate filaments are essential for tissue function as they provide resilience to cells for maintenance of tissue integrity and structure.
Working from a prototype created five years ago at the University of Dundee, we present here an updated and expanded Human Intermediate Filament Database (HIFD), which can be accessed at www.interfil.org. This current database sorts reported pathogenic sequence variants in intermediate filament genes and maps them onto consensus reference sequences, presented in parallel with basic data on protein, gene and chromosomal location, along with information on associated diseases. HIFD integrates data from variety of resources (PubMed, NCBI, OMIM, HGNC, UCSC Genome Browser) allowing them to be accessed from single web portal.
Users are encouraged to submit information on new intermediate filament variants to HIFD.
