The tissue section - Tissue-based map of the human proteome
This section of the Human Protein Atlas focuses on the expression profiles in human tissues of genes both on the mRNA and protein level. The protein expression data from 44 normal human tissue types is derived from antibody-based protein profiling using conventional and multiplex immunohistochemistry. All underlying images of immunohistochemistry stained normal tissues are available together with knowledge-based annotation of protein expression levels. The protein data covers 15318 genes (76%) for which there are available antibodies. The mRNA expression data is derived from deep sequencing of RNA (RNA-seq) from 256 different normal tissue types.
More information about the specific content and the generation and analysis of the data in the section can be found on the Methods Summary.
- protein localization in tissues at a single-cell level
- if a gene is enriched in a particular tissue (specificity)
- which genes have a similar expression profile across tissues (expression cluster)
