The method includes providing a gene expression profile for a keratinocyte, fibroblast, melanocyte or melanoma cell, which has been exposed to at least one perturbagen, and comparing the gene expression profile to a control cell from the same cell line. Genes that are differentially expressed in response to the perturbagen are identified by comparing the gene expression profiles of the control cell and the test cell. An ordered list of identifiers representing the differentially expressed genes is created according to the differential expression of the genes. The ordered list is stored as an instance on a computer readable medium. The steps are then repeated to construct a data architecture of stored instances.

  • Publication number: 20140348873
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for urea silicone gels for treating hyperkeratotic skin diseases that may benefit from barrier protection and from urea silicone gel's ability to return water balance to the skin are disclosed. Skin conditions that may be treated with urea silicone gels may be excessive dryness, callus, corns, old and new scars, and keloids, among others. Disclosed urea silicone gels may include micronized urea USP, and an anhydrous silicone base, among other ingredients. Anhydrous silicone base may include Amazonian oils such as pracaxi oil and seje oil, which are rich in oleic, linolenic, linoleic acids, and sterols, particularly beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol, which may increase skin permeability to urea. Additionally, because of the high content of unsaturated fatty acids of pracaxi oil and seje oil, disclosed urea silicone gel may exhibit an enhanced hydrating effect on skin cells, over-moisturizing and hydrating tough, thick hyperkeratotic conditions.
