Distribution of cellular HSV 1 receptor expression in human brain

PMCID: 5440480
PMID: 27981441
DOI: 10.1007/s13365-016-0504-x

[…] ression levels, the ABA human gene database was interrogated in differential mode for Hpc versus a control brain tissue, cerebellum. For developmental expression profiling, the microarray-based Human Brain Transcriptome database (consulted August 2016; was employed. Expression levels (log2 values) at different developmental stages were calculated from the trendline p […]


Association of Protein Distribution and Gene Expression Revealed by PET and Post Mortem Quantification in the Serotonergic System of the Human Brain

PMCID: 5939202
PMID: 27909009
DOI: 10.1093/cercor/bhw355

[…] r a confirmatory analysis, mRNA expression of the 5-HT1A and 5-HT2A receptors, SERT as well as MAO-A from 15 age-matched adult brains (6 female, mean age = 32.0, SD = 10.1) was derived from the Human Brain Transcriptome database ( In total, this spatio-temporal transcriptome of the human brain includes mRNA expression values of 16 regions (cerebellar cortex, mediodorsal nucleu […]
