Gene in Ethanol Study Datasets
Gene Information
Original ID1:Hs.409965
Note:"Class II, up-regulated gene"
Dataset Information
Tissue:Frontal cortex
Phenotype:Alcohol dependence (AD)/Alcohol abuse/Alcoholism
Publication:Liu et al. Neuropsychopharmacology. (2006) Patterns of gene expression in the frontal cortex discriminate alcoholic from nonalcoholic individuals. PubMed
Summary:In the present study, microarray analysis (approximately 47,000 elements) was performed on the superior frontal cortex of 27 individual human cases (14 well characterized alcoholics and 13 matched controls). A classification system was developed in which differentially expressed genes were divided into two classes. Class I genes were qualitatively different, that is, they were predominantly detected in one group but not the other. Multiple criteria were used to define Class II genes. First, only the genes detected on over 80% of the arrays in both groups. Class II were then defined as those consistently detected in both groups having absolute PLS loadings scores of >2.0 and t- probabilities of <0.05.

Dataset Information
Name:Literature Search
Method:Literature search
Summary:We search all human protein coding gene names and the keywords Alcohol or Ethanol or Alcoholism in the title or abstract of all PUBMED publications. For those gene name less than 3 characters or search result hits more than 100, we use the full name to search again and manually check the results to reduce false positive.
