Hierarchical clustering of 35 genes up-regulated by IL-17 in primary hepatocytes. Two way rANOVA analyses were performed to identify genes up-regulated by IL-17. Genes with enhanced differential gene regulation between different cytokine stimulations were identified by filtering for a minimum SD >0.4. 42 out of the 92 probe sets identified by ANOVA remained and are presented in the dendrogram. NF-κB target genes are indicated by a star (*) for literature derived annotation or a dot (.) for bioinformatical annotation next to the gene symbol (for building the NF-κB lists refer to Additional file 1).
