Gene expression changes over the lifespan and varies among different tissues or cell types. Gene co-expression also changes by sex, age, different tissues or cell types. However, gene expression under the normal state and gene co-expression in the human brain has not been fully defined and quantified. Here we present a database named Brain EXPression Database (BrainEXP) which provides spatiotemporal expression of individual genes and co-expression in normal human brains. BrainEXP consists of 4,567 samples from 2,863 healthy individuals gathered from existing public databases and our own data, in either microarray or RNA-Seq library types. We mainly provide two analysis results based on the large dataset: (i) basic gene expression across specific brain regions, age ranges, and sexes; (ii) co-expression analysis from different platforms.

Human activities have increased anthropogenic CO emissions, which are believed to play important roles in global warming. The spatiotemporal variations of CO concentration and flux at fine spatial sca...
Multiple studies suggested using different miRNAs as biomarkers for prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to assemble a miRNA expression database from independent datasets to enable an...
BloodSpot is a gene-centric database of mRNA expression of haematopoietic cells. The web-based interface to the database includes three concomitant levels of visualization for a gene query; foremost i...
The spatiotemporal regulation of gene expression is key to many biological processes. Recent imaging approaches opened exciting perspectives for understanding the intricate mechanisms regulating RNA m...
Circular RNAs (circRNAs) from back-splicing of exon(s) have been recently identified to be broadly expressed in eukaryotes, in tissue- and species- specific manners. Although functions of most circRNA...
The purpose of this study is to describe DNA copy number variations and gene expression profiles of bone marrow plasma cells of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) an...
Cysteinyl leukotrienes (CysLTs) play an important role in asthma. CysLTs exert most of their bronchoconstrictive and pro-inflammatory effects through activation of the CysLT1-r. As allergi...
MicroRNAs (miRNA) are molecular biomarkers that post-transcriptionally control target genes. Deregulated miRNA expression has been observed in diverse cancers. In high grade gliomas, know...
The purpose of this study is evaluation of expression of desmin in cardiomyocytes of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Analysis of relationship between desmin expression and...
Epidemiologic multicenter prospective study in advanced NSCLC patients with PDL1 expression : evaluation of clinical and pathological characteristics of PDL1 high expression patients compa...
A form of gene interaction whereby the expression of one gene interferes with or masks the expression of a different gene or genes. Genes whose expression interferes with or masks the effects of other genes are said to be epistatic to the effected genes. Genes whose expression is affected (blocked or masked) are hypostatic to the interfering genes.
The expression of a gene in an abnormal place, or at an abnormal time in an organism. Ectopic Gene Expression is often induced artificially by genetic techniques.
Observable changes of expression in the face in response to emotional stimuli.
A winged-helix transcription factor that regulates GENE expression in metabolic tissues. It plays a role in HOMEOSTASIS of GLUCOSE and controls expression of GLUT2 PROTEIN.
The study of the relationship between NUTRITIONAL PHYSIOLOGY and genetic makeup. It includes the effect of different food components on GENE EXPRESSION and how variations in GENES effect responses to food components.
The process of gene expression is used by eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses to generate the macromolecular machinery for life. Steps in the gene expression process may be modulated, including the transcription, RNA splicing, translation, and post-tran...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
