  1. Starvation-induced sporulation markers which display a mutant sporulation phenotype without an associated defect in fruiting body formation. Mxan: gene id; S: starvation induced spores; G: glycerol induced spores; Max. reg.: maximum regulation in microarray analysis; NT: not tested; Y: yes; N: no; Class: I (peak upregulation 0.5-1 hours) or II (peak upregulation 2-4 hours). Underlined markers displayed a transcriptional regulation pattern consistent with the prediction from the literature;*: Müller and Higgs, unpublished
