A number of two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) reference maps from mouse samples have been established and could be accessed through the internet. An up-to-date list can be found in WORLD-2D PAGE (http://www.expasy.ch/ch2d/2d- index.html), an index of 2-DE databases and services. None of them were established from mouse white and brown adipose tissues, pancreatic islets, liver nuclei and skeletal muscle. This publication describes the mouse SWISS-2D PAGE database. Proteins present in samples of mouse (C57BI/6J) liver, liver nuclei, muscle, white and brown adipose tissue and pancreatic islets are assembled and described in an accessible uniform format. SWISS-2D PAGE can be accessed through the World Wide Web (WWW) network on the ExPASy molecular biology server (http://www.expasy.ch/ ch2d/).
