From: Transcriptional profiling of sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) roots indicates down-regulation of lignin biosynthesis and up-regulation of starch biosynthesis at an early stage of storage root formation

Figure 11

Changes in the phenylpropanoid biosynthesis pathway map between fibrous roots (FRs) and initiating storage roots (ISRs).‚ÄČEnzymes exhibiting up-regulated expression in ISRs and FRs are marked in green and in red, respectively. Marked in light green are enzymes representing gene sequences that exhibit up-regulated expression in both ISRs and FRs (in most cases, a larger number of contigs exhibited higher expression in FRs compared to ISRs (Table¬†5)). Marked in white are enzymes representing gene sequences that were not detected in the Illumina-generated transcription profiles (exhibited less than 10 reads) or general enzyme categories representing an enzyme class (such as 4.1.1.-, 2.1.1- and 5.2.1-, representing lyases, methyltransferases and isomerases, respectively). Enzyme annotation was obtained from the sequence annotation and GO classification data.
