- WD repeat domain 5 (WDR5) plays an important role in various biological functions through the epigenetic regulation of gene transcription (Wysocka et al., 2005 ; Sandstrom et al., 2014; Ang et al., 2011). Recently, our study found that WDR5 was upregulated in bladder cancer tissues, promoted bladder cancer cell proliferation, self-renewal and chemoresistance to cisplatin in bladder cancer cells in vitro, and tumor growth in vivo (Chen et al., 2015). To gain a molecular understanding of the role of WDR5 in promoting bladder cancer, we performed a genome-wide analysis on WDR5 knockdown by microarray gene expression profiling. Here we provide detailed experimental methods and analysis for the microarray data, which have been deposited into Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO): GSE59132.
