Age Specific Gene Expression Signatures for Breast Tumors and Cross Species Conserved Potential Cancer Progression Markers in Young Women

PLoS One
PMCID: 3660335
PMID: 23704896
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0063204

[…] ed clear patterns of gene deregulation defining two main transcriptome clusters, one was mainly composed of primarily younger women, and the other one was composed primarily of older patients (). The Microarray Literature-based Annotation (MILANO) database search indicated 98% of those 63 genes had a published association with cancer. Moreover, we tested 63 young age-specific gene signatures agai […]


Transcriptional patterns, biomarkers and pathways characterizing nasopharyngeal carcinoma of Southern China

J Transl Med
PMCID: 2443113
PMID: 18570662
DOI: 10.1186/1479-5876-6-32

[…] y expressed between NPC and NP classes than expected by chance were selected [].Genes differentially expressed by NPC compared to NP samples were evaluated for functional annotations according to the Microarray literature-based annotation(MILANO)[,]. This program performed automatic searches in Pubmed collection for articles containing co-occurrences of search terms. A list of genes was used by pa […]


Modulation by decitabine of gene expression and growth of osteosarcoma U2OS cells in vitro and in xenografts: Identification of apoptotic genes as targets for demethylation

PMCID: 2034371
PMID: 17845729
DOI: 10.1186/1475-2867-7-14

[…] available in reference [] and verified that there was no CpG islands that are closer to TSS for the genes we tested. Up-regulated genes with CpG-island associations were further analyzed through the Microarray Literature-based Annotation tool MILANO [] to look for evidence of epigenetic modifications in the literature. MILANO is a web-based tool that allows annotation of lists of genes derived fr […]
