Gene expression data from Arabidopsis thaliana microarray experiments are incorporated
in PathoPlant. Normalized (print-tip-group lowess method) expression data from experiments
with Arabidopsis thaliana upon pathogen infection or elicitor treatment are searchable.
Two modes of search are available. A list of genes can be submitted to obtain expression data
on these genes for all stimuli annotated in PathoPlant. This search can be restricted to
certain induction factors. Alternatively, up to 3 different stimuli can be submitted for a
search for genes regulated by these stimuli. Stimuli can be combined to find only genes that
match all stimuli (AND operator) or for displaying all genes that match at least one of the
stimuli (OR operator). This search can also be restricted to certain induction factors. Besides
the induction factors given for a single experiment, mean induction factors were determined
that cover results from replicate experiments. In order to validate mean and single induction
factors, the number of replicates (n) and base-10 logarithm of standard deviation are given.
The result list can be resorted by Locus, Description, Stimulus, Factor, and Mean factor by
clicking on the respective column header. A list of genes obtained by a expression search can
directly be submitted to the Search by locus/gene ID form in PathoPlant. Additionally, the
gene list can be transferred to AthaMap for a transcription factor binding site analysis.
