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.
Malignant cells displayed moderate nuclear positivity. Additional cytoplasmic staining was observed in malignant melanomas, breast, endometrial, liver and prostate cancers. A few cases of ovarian and cervical cancers exhibited strong staining. Several testicular cancers were weakly stained or negative.
Most malignant cells showed weak to moderate cytoplasmic staining. Cases of prostate cancers displayed strong positivity. Malignant carcinoids, malignant gliomas, thyroid and testicular cancers were negative in most cases.
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
Two (or more) antibodies yielding dissimilar staining patterns which are partly consistent with gene/protein characterization data or consistent with limited gene/protein characterization data
