We previously revealed similarity in gene expression patterns between human brain and testis, based on digital differential display analyses of 760 human Unigenes. In the present work, we reanalyzed the gene expression data in many tissues of human and mouse for a large number of genes almost covering the respective whole genomes. The results indicated that both in human and in mouse, the gene expression profiles exhibited by brain, cerebellum and testis are most similar to each other compared with other tissues.
