Title: Gene expression of PBMC of chinese nickel refinery workers when compared to the gene expression profile of PBMCs from referent subjects

Accession Number: GSE40392

Link to Dataset:

Repository: Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)

Data Type(s): Gene Expression

Experiment Type(s): Expression profiling by array

Organism(s): Homo sapiens

Summary: Up to date the studies examining the gene expression profiles in response to exposure to nickel compounds have only been conducted using in vitro tissue culture systems. Here, we have compared the gene expression profiles in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PMCs) of eight nickel refinery workers in Jinchang, China to the expression profiles of referent subjects with only environmental exposure.
