Comparison of differential gene expression between CCI and naïve groups in male and female rats. a Schematic diagram of experiment. Male and female rats were randomly assigned to the naïve group or receive CCI. RNA-seq performed on ipsilateral L4-L6 DRGs from each animal. Differentially expressed genes (DEG) defined as genes expressed after CCI versus naïve with a |log2FC| > 0.5 and an FDR < 0.05. b Principal component analysis of male and female rats from the naïve and CCI groups. c Heatmap that shows the log2FC of the 200 most differentially expressed genes between the CCI and Naïve groups in female and male rats. d Venn diagram shows the number of genes that are differentially expressed in males (orange) and females (green). Log2FC expression between the CCI and naive males (x-axis) and females (y-axis). Threshold of |log2FC| > 0.5(dashed lines) with an FDR < 0.05 designates DEGs in female rats only (green), male rats only (orange), and in both male and female rats (brown).
