Counts of differentially expressed genes for each condition grouped by COG functional category. Genes with a log2 fold-change ≥1 for each condition were grouped by COG group. Positive counts represent observed up-regulated genes and negative counts represent observed down-regulated genes. COG code, number of proteins encoded by genome and category description: (A, 2) RNA processing and modification; (C, 284) Energy production and conversion; (D, 39) Cell cycle control, cell division, chromosome partitioning; (E, 355) Amino acid transport and metabolism; (F, 107) Nucleotide transport and metabolism; (G, 381) Carbohydrate transport and metabolism; (H, 179) Coenzyme transport and metabolism; (I, 121) Lipid transport and metabolism; (J, 236) Translation, ribosomal structure and biogenesis; (K, 294) Transcription; (L, 139) Replication, recombination and repair; (M, 242) Cell wall, membrane and envelope biogenesis; (N, 102) Cell motility; (O, 156) Post-translational modification, protein turnover, chaperones; (P, 223) Inorganic ion transport and metabolism; (Q, 68) Secondary metabolites biosynthesis, transport and catabolism; (R, 261) General function prediction only; (S, 203) Function unknown; (T, 191) Signal transduction mechanisms; (U, 50) Intracellular trafficking, secretion, and vesicular transport; (V, 91) Defense mechanisms; (W, 31) Extracellular structures; (X, 60) Mobilome, prophages, transposons
