IPA Features

Canonical Pathway

Pathway Analysis, Canonical Pathways, Overlapping Pathways, Pathway Import and scoring. Determine most significantly affected pathways. Analyze your data in the context of established signaling and metabolic pathways. Determine the most significantly affected pathways and those that are predicted to be activated or inhibited. Determine which pathways overlap based on molecules in common.


Molecule Activity Predictor (MAP)

Interrogate sub-networks and Canonical Pathways and generate hypotheses by selecting a molecule of interest, indicating up or down regulation, and simulating directional consequences of downstream molecules and the inferred activity upstream in the network or pathway.


See the video

Upstream Regulator Analysis

Predict upstream molecules, including microRNA and transcription factors, which may be causing the observed gene expression changes.


See the video, Read the PDF

Mechanistic Networks

Automatically generate plausible signaling cascades describing potential mechanism of action leading to observed gene expression changes.

Downstream Effects Analysis

Identify whether significant downstream biological processes are increased or decreased based on gene expression results.


Read the PDF

Regulator Effects

Provides insights into your data by integrating Upstream Regulator results with Downstream Effects results to create causal hypotheses that explain what may be occurring upstream to cause particular phenotypic or functional outcomes downstream.

Network Analysis

Build and explore transcriptional networks, microRNA-mRNA target networks, phosphorylation cascades and Protein-Protein or Protein-DNA interaction networks. Identify regulatory events that lead from signaling events to transcriptional effects. Understand toxicity responses by exploring connections between drugs or targets and related genes or chemicals. Edit and expand networks based on the molecular relationships most relevant to the project.


Comparison Analysis

Quickly visualize trends and similarities across analyses using heat maps for Canonical Pathway, Downstream Effects, Upstream regulators and Causal Network Analyses. Prioritize by score, hierarchical cluster or trend.

MicroRNA Target Filter

Reduce the number of steps it takes to confidently, quickly, and easily identify mRNA targets by letting you examine microRNA-mRNA pairings, explore the related biological context, and filter based on relevant biological information as well as the expression information. The microRNA Target Filter in IPA provides insights into the biological effects of microRNAs, using experimentally validated interactions from TarBase and miRecords, as well as predicted microRNA-mRNA interactions from TargetScan. Additionally, IPA includes a large number of microRNA-related findings from the peer-reviewed literature.

Isoform View

Understand the structure and function of both human and mouse isoforms (splice variants). For each gene, toggle between human or mouse RefSeq and Ensembl to visualize associated isoforms on the Isoform View.


Find out more

Disease View

Provides details associated with the disease or biological function such as molecules associated with that disease or function, known drug targets, drugs known to target those molecules, and more.


Find out more

Tox Lists and Tox Functions

IPA-Tox uses Toxicity Functions in combination with Toxicity Lists to link experimental data to clinical pathology endpoints, understand pharmacological response, and support mechanism of action and mechanism of toxicity hypothesis generation.
