Trans-sialidase (TS) family genes increase their TE upon differentiation. Expression profiles for the TS genes in T. cruzi epimastigotes (E) and metacyclic trypomastigotes (MT) are shown. (
) Box plots of the TS family translational efficiency in E and MT. Statistically significant differences among populations are indicated by asterisks (Wilcoxon p < 0.05). (
) Scatter plot of the fold change (MT/E expression estimates) in the translatome vs the transcriptome. TS genes are shown in red.
