What databases are available for gene regulatory network graphs starting from a given gene? For example, starting from p53 gene, where can I find a gene regulatory network image that can be exported or embedded to another website?

For a free resource, try GenMAPP. Commercial products like Ingenuity Pathway Analysis do the same thing with prettier graphics and a curated approach to network-building, but access can be expensive if you're not affiliated with an institution that will foot the bill.


If you can't afford ingenuity, KEGG has branched out into regulatory networks as well. Here's the link to their version of the pathway.


Its free to use as a reference and for academic research.

    $\begingroup$ How did you get to this page? I want exactly the same thing for other genes but I keep winding up at pages that look like this: genome.jp/dbget-bin/www_bget?ko:K02583 and don't know where to go $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ i can click on 'pathway menu' and then use the box to search for my genes and get more diagrams like this one. $\endgroup$

I highly recommend you to visit Pathguide to get a sense of how vast is the catalog of Pathway Databases. Looking into the category Pathway Diagrams or in Transcription Factors / Gene Regulatory Networks should help in your task.

I would start by looking at these DataBases:

  • GeneMania
  • BioCarta
  • WikiPathways
  • Reactome

If you are working with a species other than human, perhaps you'll find a more suitable database in PathGuide.

Good luck!

PS: Sorry New user limitations impede me to post more than two links :/
