Uniprot different names / aliases

Does anyone know how to get a list of all protein aliases for human proteins from Uniprot? The aliases are described here: https://www.uniprot.org/help/different_protein_gene_names

These can be found individually for each protein but I wanted a table / list for all of them

I think you may have to download the entire UniProtKB and run a custom query.

I was hoping that wasn't going to be necessary....

Not from UniProt (from NCBI) see my answer here : A: Easiest way to homogenize gene aliases across datasets?

I don't think these line up, GenoMax. The UniProt aliases are full descriptions where NCBI has symbol aliases.

Following should produce descriptions as well:

$ esearch -db gene -query "human [orgn]" | efetch | grep -A 2 "Official" | head -11
Official Symbol: TP53 and Name: tumor protein p53 [Homo sapiens (human)]
Other Aliases: BCC7, BMFS5, LFS1, P53, TRP53
Other Designations: cellular tumor antigen p53; antigen NY-CO-13; mutant tumor protein 53; p53 tumor suppressor; phosphoprotein p53; transformation-related protein 53; tumor protein 53; tumor supressor p53
--
Official Symbol: EGFR and Name: epidermal growth factor receptor [Homo sapiens (human)]
Other Aliases: ERBB, ERBB1, HER1, NISBD2, PIG61, mENA
Other Designations: epidermal growth factor receptor; avian erythroblastic leukemia viral (v-erb-b) oncogene homolog; cell growth inhibiting protein 40; cell proliferation-inducing protein 61; epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase domain; erb-b2 receptor tyrosine kinase 1; proto-oncogene c-ErbB-1; receptor tyrosine-protein kinase erbB-1
--
Official Symbol: TNF and Name: tumor necrosis factor [Homo sapiens (human)]
Other Aliases: DIF-alpha, TNFA, TNFSF2, TNLG1F, TNF
Other Designations: tumor necrosis factor; APC1 protein; TNF, macrophage-derived; TNF, monocyte-derived; TNF-a; tumor necrosis factor ligand 1F; tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 2; tumor necrosis factor-alpha

You could also download them from UniProt as a table using: https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/?query=proteome:UP000005640+AND+proteomecomponent:%22Chromosome+1%22&sort=score

Actual query uses:proteomecomponent:"chromosome 1" AND organism:"Homo sapiens (Human) [9606]" AND proteome:up000005640 (change chromosome number to get tables for all chromosomes).

Configure columns as needed.

You can configure the output format of your search result table to include the columns you want, and then download the results in tab- delimited format. This can be done for any query, including the wildcard query "*" which allows you to retrieve all entries.

See https://www.uniprot.org/help/customize, (video, at about 1min25) or https://insideuniprot.blogspot.com/2015/03) and follow these instructions to include a column for the protein name (or gene names), and remove all columns that you do not wish to see or download.

For example for all reviewed entries, reviewed:yes

default columns, or the columns you had previously selected: https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/?query=reviewed%3Ayes&sort=score

most columns removed: https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/?query=reviewed%3Ayes&columns=id%2Centry%20name%2Creviewed%2Cprotein%20names&sort=score

tab-delimited, first 1000 entries: https://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/?query=reviewed:yes&format=tab&limit=1000&columns=id,entry%20name,reviewed,protein%20names&sort=score

(remove "&limit=1000" to get all). This URL can of course be used programmatically (see https://www.uniprot.org/help/api).

BTW we also provide this precomputed file, for all reviewed (i.e. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot) entries https://ftp.uniprot.org/pub/databases/uniprot/current_release/knowledgebase/complete/docs/shortdes.txt
