High expression of COL10A1 is associated with poor prognosis in colorectal cancer

PMCID: 5865565
PMID: 29593423
DOI: 10.2147/OTT.S160196

[…] RNA expression level in CRC was increased through a meta-analysis of about 12 studies of CRC transcriptome sequencing in the Oncomine database (Figure S2). Meanwhile, all available online data on the Prognoscan website showed that the expression of COL10A1 was connected with overall survival (OS) and disease free survival (DFS) (Figure S3). High COL10A1 expression was observed in various solid hum […]


Transcriptome analysis and prognosis of ALDH isoforms in human cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5807355
PMID: 29426835
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21123-4

[…] ics and functional validation of candidate genes. The challenge of reproducibility for an individual microarray study may potentially be improved by a systematic approach using standardized methods,. Prognoscan ( is a bioinformatics tool that contains more than 70 microarray studies from 13 different human cancer types with clinical prognosis. It has been used wide […]


High expression of SMARCA4 or SMARCA2 is frequently associated with an opposite prognosis in cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5794756
PMID: 29391527
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20217-3

[…] We next investigated whether having tumors with increased expression of SMARCA4 or SMARCA2 was linked to patient prognosis. For this, we performed a meta-analysis of data collected from the PrognoScan database. This database allows systematic analysis of the prognostic value of the expression of a gene across a large collection of publicly available cancer microarray datasets. Correlatio […]


NOD2 maybe a biomarker for the survival of kidney cancer patients

PMCID: 5731890
PMID: 29254180
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.21547

[…] tained at the gene level (level 3). RNA-Seq counts data were log2 transformed. Then, we analyzed all the data with the help of online tools as ITTACA, KMPlot, Recurrence Online, bc-GeneExMiner, GOBO, PrognoScan and SurvExpress. We found that SurvExpress was most convenient online tool for this analysis, which is available in ( It includes a tutorial […]


RefEx, a reference gene expression dataset as a web tool for the functional analysis of genes

Sci Data
PMCID: 5574374
PMID: 28850115
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2017.105

[…] r research. The mRNA expression levels of IDH3α and VEGF-A were used and visualized as main indicators in 10 major groups of normal tissues in conjunction with the calculated prognostic values by the PrognoScan database. Another example is a study of murine colon proteomes in which colon-specific genes in the mouse version of RefEx were compared to a list of genes from murine colon proteomes that […]


Overexpression of SOX4 correlates with poor prognosis of acute myeloid leukemia and is leukemogenic in zebrafish

PMCID: 5596385
PMID: 28841206
DOI: 10.1038/bcj.2017.74

[…] h BM SOX4 expression was also demonstrated in CN-AML patients. These results are consistent with an online transcriptome data (GSE12417-GPL96 cohort) from AML patients (). Their data were analyzed by PrognoScan, a new database in which meta-analyses to elucidate the prognostic value of genes can be performed. It demonstrated that higher SOX4 mRNA expression led to a worse overall survival in AML p […]
