Table 5 Pathways and associated genes identified as enriched by KEGG of the 155 DE genes between meat birds, crossed and layer birds

From: Transcriptional analysis of liver from chickens with fast (meat bird), moderate (F1 layer x meat bird cross) and low (layer bird) growth potential

  1. aMean CPM gene expression values are ‘counts per million’ transcripts to normalise for varying depth of sequence among samples
  2. bFold change comparisons: M&L = Meat bird and Layer; M&C = Meat bird and Cross; L&C = Layer and Cross
  3. cDirection of regulation: ↑ Meat bird upregulated (meat bird > cross > layer); ↓ Meat bird downregulated (meat bird < cross < layer)
