  • For each Acp assayed, the total number of genes found to be significantly differentially regulated in this study is given over the total number of genes that were significantly differentially regulated in McGraw et al. (2004). Only genes that were represented on both microarray platforms were considered. The percentage of this total is given in parentheses. “Consistent” indicates the total number of genes that exhibited consistency in the directionality of changes (e.g., increased or decreased transcript levels) in both studies over the total number of genes significantly differentially expressed in both studies. The percentage of this total is also given in parentheses.
