From: Nourishment level affects caste-related gene expression in Polistes wasps

Figure 4

Number and overlap of nourishment-responsive differentially expressed transcripts (DETs) between Polistes metricus (paper wasp) and A) Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) fat body, C) fruit fly muscle, or E) Onthophagus taurus (dung beetle) female thoracic horn. Number and overlap of of enriched GO terms between paper wasps and B) fruit fly fat body, D) fruit fly muscle, or F) dung beetle thoracic horn. Directionality, i.e. which nourishment treatment group showed upregulation, is indicated for each dataset. There is only a statistically significant overlap between paper wasp and fruit fly wild-type fat body enriched GO terms (indicated by *, Chi-squared test with Yates’ correction, p-value = 9.557e-11). All other comparisons were not significant (Chi-squared tests with Yates’ corrections, p-values > 0.05).
