I, Increase (according to the Affymetrix Difference Call algorithm); MI, marginal increase; D, decrease; MD, marginal decrease; NC, no change. Nos. give the fold change. All transcripts meet the presence criterion in both situations (exceptions with asterisk). ∼ Indicates background problems and the fold change is an approximation.
