The search result lists the genes found by the search function. The list can be limited to only include genes with antibodies. The list can also be limited to only include genes with knowledge-based annotated protein expression.
The show/hide columns function can be used to add columns to the search result list, with information about:
1. the gene (synonyms, Ensembl gene identifier (ENSG), gene description, chromosomal location and protein class),
2. evidence (summary, HPA, UniProt and RNA evidence),
3. annotations (antibody validation, the reliablity of the annotated protein expression using immunohistochemically (IH) stained on human tissues, the reliablity of the annotated protein expression in immunofluorescently (IF) stained human cell lines, tissue specificity (the distribution of antibody staining or protein expression in human cell types), cell line specificity (the distribution of RNA abundance in cell lines) and subcellular location (based on immunofluorescent staining of cell lines)),
4. protein expression in organs, such as digestive tract or placenta. The different colored areas of the bar represent the fraction of the analysed cell types in that organ with a certain relative level of protein expression/antibody staining (intensity of the color). A red color scale represents antibody staining while a blue color scale represents annotated protein expression.
The matched text column displays where the most relevant search hit was found among all searched fields.

The Human Protein Atlas data for each gene is accessed by clicking on the gene of interest. A tab-separated file with the search results can be retrieved by clicking the "TAB"-link in the upper right corner of the search result page. An XML-file with more extensive data (including protein expression data (in normal and tumor tissues and in cell lines), antigen sequences, Western blot data for antibodies, protein array data for antibodies, RNA-Seq data, external references such as UniProt identifiers, and more (see XSD)) for up to 1000 genes in a search result can be retrieved by clicking the "XML"-link in the upper right corner of the search result page.
