Top 20 Gene/Protein Antibodies

Top 20 Gene/Protein Antibodies
Aug-28-2015 0 comments Cube Biosystems

Conducting a literature search of over 3.5 million articles, we compiled a list of some of the most popular potential antibody targets between 2010 and June of 2015.  The search was conducted utilizing gene names, aliases, and the keyword ‘antibody’. 

Genes generally associated with immunological (e.g. CD40L, CD74, CD79A, IL36RN) and cancer research (e.g. MYC) are heavily represented, while genes generally associated with neuroscience (MBOAT) and signal transduction also are present in this list.  For a more comprehensive list and analysis, please contact us at  To search for antibodies, click below:

The figure and table summarize the top 20 genes during the period of 2010-2015:
