Table 1 Overrepresented Kegg pathways in macular RPE expressed genes with high, moderate and low expression levels and high or low levels of interindividual variability (coefficient of variation, CV).

From: Functional annotation of the human retinal pigment epithelium transcriptome

   expression level
   all expression levels high (> 90th perc) moderate (50th–90th perc) low (10th–50th perc)

  1. Overrepresented pathways were identified with B: a Benjamini-Hochberg corrected p value < 0.001, or E: an Ease score p value < 0.001. Perc: percentile, high CV: > 90th percentile, low CV: < 10th percentile.
