Analyses of overlaps of different modes of regulation within the SA-induced transcriptome

The 182 induced genes selected were classified with respect to their regulation in the SAW30 versus SAW1 (a W30-sensitive pathway) and SANB versus SATB (a n-butanol-sensitive pathway) comparisons. The expected number of genes for each overlap was calculated and compared to the observed number. P values are those of a Fisher's test. Categories printed in bold are overrepresented while those printed in italics are underrepresented in the experimental data. dobs, Observed distribution; dtheor, theoretical distribution.
