Our knowledge on tissue- and disease-specific functions of human genes is rather limited and highly context-specific. Here, we have developed a method for the comparison of mRNA expression levels of most human genes across 9,783 Affymetrix gene expression array experiments representing 43 normal human tissue types, 68 cancer types, and 64 other diseases.(More)
Recently, in the course of our search for the prostacyclin receptor in the brain, we found a novel subtype, designated as IP2, which was finely discriminated by use of the specific ligand (15R)-16-m-tolyl-17,18,19,20-tetranorisocarbacyclin (15R-TIC) and specifically localized in the rostral part of the brain. In the present study, the tritiated compound(More)
BACKGROUND Meta-analysis of gene expression microarray datasets presents significant challenges for statistical analysis. We developed and validated a new bioinformatic method for the identification of genes upregulated in subsets of samples of a given tumour type ('outlier genes'), a hallmark of potential oncogenes. METHODOLOGY A new statistical method(More)
IL-12 and IL-18 are essential for Th1 differentiation, whereas the role of IFN-alpha in Th1 development is less understood. In this microarray-based study, we searched for genes that are regulated by IFN-alpha, IL-12, or the combination of IL-12 plus IL-18 during the early differentiation of human umbilical cord blood CD4(+) Th cells. Twenty-six genes were(More)
