Abstract: In order to screen the more effective software for the pathway and network analysis of Kashin-Beck disease, gene microarrays, TranscriptomeBrowser, MetaCore and GeneMANIA were used for analysis. Three significant chondrocytic pathways and one network were screened by TranscriptomeBrowser; one significant pathway and one network were identified by MetaCore. BAX, APAF1, CASP6, BCL2, VEGF, SOCS3, BAK, TGFBI, TNFAIP6, TNFRSF11B and THBS1 were significant genes associated with the biological function of chondrocyte or cartilage involved in the TranscriptomeBrowser or MetaCore results. The interactions between the significant genes and their adjacent genes were searched and classified in GeneMANIA. In pathway analysis results, TranscriptomeBrowser is superior to get the interaction of pathway and co-expression compared with MetaCore; MetaCore is superior to get the interaction of physical interaction compared with TranscriptomeBrowser. In network analysis results, TranscriptomeBrowser contains more interaction message of co-localisation, MetaCore contains more interaction message of co-expression.
