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.

Example proteins in the cancer atlas:
Kallikrein-related peptidase 3.
Selective cytoplasmic expression in prostate cancers. All other malignant tissues were negative.
Selective cytoplasmic expression in melanomas. All other malignant tissues were negative.
Cyclin-dependent kinase 1.
Distinct cytoplasmic and nuclear expression in a subset of tumor cells in most malignant tissues.
