Gene Expression in Neutrophil-like Cell Lines

Expression data is for primary human and murine neutrophils and PLB985 or HL60 cells before and after differentiation with either 1.3% DMSO or 1.3% DMSO + 0.5% Nutridoma-CS (Sigma). Expression values are FPKM normalized on a log10 scale. Transcripts that were undetected were assigned an arbitrary value of -4.00. Data for PLB985 and HL60 cells is our own RNA-Seq data. Raw data for primary human and mouse neutrophils was collated from previously published studies and analyzed along-side our own1-6. For convenience, links to Dictyostelium discoideum homologs are also displayed.

Data may be searched by symbol, Gene ID or protein domain and sorted by any column. Users can choose to display a subset of columns by selecting columns from the upper right hand side of the database. Use the icons to print or export the data as desired.
