  1. Genes exhibiting significant (p < 0.01) differential expression in human microglial cells stimulated with IFN-γ for 1 h were identified by limma [34, 42] analysis of data associated with Rock et al.'s recent publication [17] (GEO id GSE1432). 80 orthologous mouse genes were identified using HCNetDat [51]. Differential expression levels in response to IFN-γ for the orthologous mouse genes were determined by affy [38-40] analysis of data associated with our recent publication of transcriptional responses to IFN-γ in IFN-γ-/- mouse livers [19] (GEO id GSE4232). Literature was searched for experimentally verified STAT1 TFBSs (either GAS sites or ISRE sites were accepted) associated with the 10 most differentially regulated orthologous mouse genes (each was induced over 1.6-fold). Positions of STAT1 binding sites are given relative to the start of the first exon of each gene.
