Question: Brain expression of different transcripts of the same gene. Is there a database?

Hello everyone!

I am working on a gene with 5 different transcripts.

2 or 3 are quite similar as they differ perhaps in 1-2 amino acids. Apart from this, they differ significantly in the 5' UTR.

Maybe a silly question but any idea if, how and where I could find which transcript(s) is/are expressed in the brain?

Thank you in advance,

Check out the Allen Brain Atlas. They have some microarray datasets that might have transcript-level metrics. You might also get lucky and find that some of the in situ probes are transcript-specific, though I wouldn't hold my breath there.

This is a quite valuable resource, but it's mouse data:

Thanks a lot. Very useful but I could not finally find the information I was looking for (has to do with my transcripts!).
