Table 5 The number of ESTs, contigs and clusters differently expressed in L2 direct and L2 indirect stages and those with a two-fold or greater difference in expression.

From: A microarray analysis of gene expression in the free-living stages of the parasitic nematode Strongyloides ratti

  L2 direct-up L2 indirect-up Total
EST 1 246 429 675
≥ 2-fold 2 1 4 5
Contig 3 105 320 425
≥ 2-fold 4 1 2 3
Cluster 3 93 311 404
≥ 2-fold 4 1 2 3
  1. 1These ESTs are represented by 107 and 95 (L2 direct-up) and 323 and 316 (L2 indirect-up) contigs and clusters respectively.
  2. 2Number of ESTs that have a ratio of expression that is ≥ 2; these ESTs are represented by 1 (L2 direct-up) and 3 (L2 indirect-up) contigs and clusters respectively.
  3. 3Number of contigs or clusters, respectively, in which at least one EST member (for which there were data above the quality threshold) had a significantly different ratio of expression.
  4. 4Number of contigs or clusters, respectively, in which at least one EST member (for which there were data above the quality threshold) has a significantly different ratio of expression that is ≥ 2.
