Venn diagram of the overlap of differentially expressed cervical cancer genes in the literature. Eight reports of differentially expressed cervical cancer genes from the literature were compared against each other and to our results. Seven of the studies were combined into one group (203 genes, no overlap between studies). Our results (Carlson, 140 genes) overlapped with Santin (488 genes) by 9 genes and with the rest by 11 genes. Santin had 20 genes in common with the 203 gene combined group. Only 2 genes were found in all three data sets, SLC2A1 and a serine protease inhibitor (clone IDs 25389 and 2562939). Our results show comparable overlap with the literature, and provide additional evidence that the tissue samples analyzed are representative of previous reports on cervical cancer.
