This subsection of the ‘General annotation (Comments)’ section provides information on the expression of a gene at the mRNA or protein level in cells or in tissues of multicellular organisms. By default, the information is derived from experiments at the mRNA level, unless specified ‘at the protein level’.
The documented absence of a given gene product in a tissue is also indicated.
If information about the tissue expression are inconsistent between two different references, the contradictory results are described and the reference number is cited in brackets after each statement.
Note: The content of the ‘Tissue specificity’ subsection may overlap with that of the ‘Developmental stage’ subsection.
