Top Trending Gene Targets for Antibodies
Now that whole genome sequence is known, it is interesting to see what genes have captured the research community's attention. As part of our interest in tracking the most widely studied genes, we wanted to look at the growth and trends of the use of antibodies against some of the more widely known genes. Utilizing the 2005-2010 period as a baseline, we charted the publication numbers associated with antibodies and their gene targets. Table 1 contains a list of some of the top trending, widely known genes -- as it relates to antibody targets. The most positive trending gene by publication growth rate is VEGF-A (more than doubling its publication numbers over the previous five year period); while, as noted in a previous post, CD40L is the most studied gene utilizing antibodies, among this group.
