The cancer tissue page shows antibody staining in 20 different cancers. The overall cancer tissue staining statistics shows the fraction of patient samples with strong, moderate, weak or no staining (as described by the color-coding scale in the box to the right), using all the available antibodies to the protein targets encoded by this gene. The assay and annotation is described here.
The cancers can be ordered histologically or alphabetically.
For each cancer, the staining for each available antibody is reported as the fraction of samples with strong, moderate, weak or no staining (as described by the color-coding scale in the box to the right). The lenght of the bar represents the number of patient samples analysed (max=12 patients). By clicking on a cancer tissue, the detailed staining data for that cancer is available, including annotated images.
At the bottom of this page, a summary for the cancer staining for each antibody is given, together with the immunohistochemistry validation score for that antibody.
Most malignant tissues showed moderate cytoplasmic and occasional nuclear staining. Many cases of testicular cancers and malignant melanomas and a few cases of endometrial and urothelial cancers showed strong cytoplasmic immunoreactivity. Most of the gliomas and skin cancers were weakly stained.
Malignant cells were in general weakly stained or negative. Moderate cytoplasmic immunoreactivity was mainly observed in ovarian, stomach, breast and liver cancers.
Two (or more) antibodies yielding partly similar staining patterns which are partly consistent with gene/protein characterization data or consistent with limited gene/protein characterization data
Two (or more) antibodies yielding dissimilar or partly similar staining patterns and there is no available gene/protein characterization data or only limited gene/protein characterization data
