Expression Profiles For Proteins in Normal Human Tissues

This dataset covers the Expression profiles for proteins in human tissues based on immunohistochemistry using tissue microarrays. The data is based on The Human Protein Atlas version 16 and Ensembl version 83.38.

The Expression Profiles For Proteins in Normal Human Tissues contains quantitative data and images describing the expression and distribution of human proteins across tissues and organs, both on the mRNA and protein level. The protein expression data is derived from annotation of immunohistochemical staining of cell populations in all major human tissues and organs, including the brain, liver, kidney, lymphoid tissues, heart, lung, skin, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, endocrine tissues and the reproductive organs. In total, 44 different human tissues are included and contain annotation data for altogether 76 different cell types. The antibody-based protein profiles are qualitative and describe the spatial distribution, cell type specificity and the rough relative abundance of proteins in these tissues, whereas the mRNA data provide quantitative data on the average gene expression within an entire tissue. For each gene, the immunohistochemical staining profile, based on a single or multiple antibodies, is matched with mRNA data and gene/protein characterization data to yield an “annotated protein expression” profile.
