Publication in Progress?

The citation is an abstract. It may mean the full article is not yet published. Just a guess.

Subject: CHAT: What does PIP mean?

I came across this in PubMed today; I've never seen it before: PIP. It's shows as a subheading for the abstract. I immediately googled it, only to find out that many many people have also asked this, to no real answer(?). See my copy/paste below the abstract excerpt. I anonymized the Q & A in some vague impulse to maintain privacy, but still get content shared. Then I input PIP into the Getting Started portion of NCBI. Those results show how many times the "word/term" PIP shows in NCBI, but does not define this term. Is there a key somewhere in PubMed that tells what these acronyms mean? I hope when this posts to the ListServ it is comprehensible. I'm sure PIP stands for something very obvious, but in the context in which I found it, it has nothing to do with gene sequencing...  Thanks in advance.

I'm not aware of any bibliographic meaning of the term. Looking in PubMed, the term appears to concern certain protein sequences. I think you will have to find out the technical meaning of the term.
