Proportion of transcriptional changes twofold in magnitude or greater in mated females relative to virgin females

Time point (hr)No. of twofold or greater changes% total changesProbability of being different from 1 to 3 hr
1–364/21792.94
6–89/1137.960.008

  • The total number of genes exhibiting twofold or larger changes in magnitude is shown over the total number of significantly differentially regulated genes (using Q-value cutoff) at each time point and the percentage of each of these fractions is given. The probability of this value being significantly different from the 1- to 3-hr time point (from Fisher's exact test).
