The cancer tissue atlas contains gene expression data based on protein expression patterns in a multitude of human cancer specimens. Protein expression data is derived from antibody-based protein profiling using immunohistochemistry. Altogether 216 different cancer samples, corresponding to the 20 most common forms of human cancer, have been analyzed for all included genes. The data is presented as pathology-based annotation of protein expression levels in tumor cells and all the underlying images of cancer tissues are displayed in the cancer atlas.
The protein data includes protein expression levels corresponding to 16613 genes for which there are available antibodies.
The search function can be used for free text search (type anything in the search field), or for more complex queries using "Fields" (see examples).
The free text search will scan for complete and partial matches to gene names, gene synonyms, gene descriptions, external (UniProt, Ensembl, NCBI Entrez Gene) gene and protein identifiers, protein classes, Gene Ontology identifiers and descriptions, antibody identifiers and image annotations. The free text query word needs to be at least three characters long.
