Analysis of expected and observed clusters of genes classified by their response to SA and the effect of wortmannin on this response

Expected number of genes for each cluster was calculated and compared to the actual number observed in our analysis. With respect to the expected numbers, the category printed in bold is overrepresented in the experimental data, whereas the categories written in italics are underrepresented. SA-induced and SA-repressed genes were considered separately. For each category, the differences in distribution correlated with the inhibitory effect of W30 versus W1 on the response to SA.
