This is a database of EST sequences of Adiantum capillus-veneris determined by Tokyo Metropolitan University, and the results of the blastx search between these sequences and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL databases. Although various plant genomes have been analyzed, the research concerning fern plants has not progressed among land plants (including seed plants, fern and moss). Considering Adiantum capillus-veneris, which has been used for photomorphogenesis research, as a model fern plant, EST sequence analysis of Adiantum was performed.
AcEST is a database comprising about 30,000 items of EST sequence data of Adiantum capillus-veneris and additional secondary information. The database can be used to look for new genes in fern plants, to elucidate gene evolution and to collect gene information specific to fern plants.
