LOCATE: a mouse protein subcellular localization database
We present here LOCATE, a curated, web-accessible database that houses data describing the membrane organization and subcellular localization of proteins from the FANTOM3 Isoform Protein Sequence set. Membrane organization is predicted by the high-throughput, computational pipeline MemO. The subcellular locations of selected proteins from this set were determined by a high-throughput, immunofluorescence-based assay and by manually reviewing >1700 peer-reviewed publications. LOCATE represents the

"Like One Big Family": A Former Textile Worker Describes the Closeness of the Southern Mill Village
The southern textile mills, which had expanded dramatically during World War I, faced serious decline in the 1920s.
