Table 1 With or without the contribution of large gene family members, greater than 50% of the Trypanosoma cruzi genes detected on whole-genome, oligonucleotide microarrays were significantly stage-regulated at the RNA level.

  1. The oligonucleotide sequences were aligned against the T. cruzi genome by BLAST analysis [58]. Oligonucleotides showing 80% or greater identity with more than three T. cruzi gene ID's were not counted.
  2. 1Significantly stage-regulated as determined by SAM analysis (FDR = 0.4%).
  3. 2Non-significantly stage-regulated as determined by SAM analysis (FDR = 0.4%).
  4. 3Oligonucleotides mapping to members of large gene families (number of members > 30).
