TFEBexplorer is a comprehensive web-tool to study genes modulated by the transcription factor EB (TFEB), a master regulator of lysosomal biogenesis and autophagy, that integrates multiple datasets following genetic perturbation of TFEB with experimentally validated and bioinformatically-predicted binding sites across multiple species. Given one gene, or a set of genes of interest, in input (query), the results are displayed in different panels, each reporting results of experiments or bioinformatic analyses.
TFEBdb is a unique resource for those interested in understanding the effect of TFEB on a set of genes of interest. The database offers an intuitive interface and results are displayed in an easy-to-interpret format offering information on the expression changes following inducible over-expression, knock-down and knock-out of TFEB across cell lines and species together with experimentally validated and bioinformatically predicted binding sites in the proximal promoter of the gene(s) of interest.
