  • Transcripts were considered in light of the musculus/domesticus-likeness of the probe set, excluding sequence divergence as a contributor to expression differences. Numbers in parentheses indicate that additive expression of a transcript cannot be unequivocally identified because the transcript is not expressed in one of the subspecies.
