Recurrent rearrangements of the Myb/SANT like DNA binding domain containing 3 gene (MSANTD3) in salivary gland acinic cell carcinoma

PLoS One
PMCID: 5315303
PMID: 28212443
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0171265

[…] by immunohistochemistry using an anti-MSANTD3 antibody (LS-C146308, 1:2400 dilution; LifeSpan Biosciences) and peroxidase-based chromogenic staining (EnVision, Dako). All slides were uploaded to the Stanford Tissue Microarray Database []. Cores were evaluated for nuclear staining and assigned a score of strong (2), moderate (1), weak (+/-), negative (-), or uninterpretable/missing core (<100 eval […]

Application and evaluation of automated semantic annotation of gene expression experiments

PMCID: 2687992
PMID: 19376825
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp259

[…] mably for this reason, GenoText's results include many terms that are of limited use in information retrieval, such as ‘total’. Similar automated mapping for cancer terms has been demonstrated on the Stanford Tissue Microarray database (Shah et al., ). By manually evaluating a sample of annotations, they estimated 86% precision and 95% recall. Another system, ‘Whatizit’ provides a web-based system […]


Robust computational reconstitution – a new method for the comparative analysis of gene expression in tissues and isolated cell fractions

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1574358
PMID: 16889662
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-7-369

[…] ssed genes generally show a higher standard error than strongly-expressed genes (log-transformed data). As a consequence, the newly-defined μ- and MAD-test statistics, tμ = μ1 - μ2 = mean(s - s*) and tMAD = mean(|s - s*|), respectively. (s = log S, s* = log S*), do not contain the standard error. The μ-test, and also V&S, appeared to be almost unbiased with respect to expression strength. The MAD- […]
