Overview of the gene expression in the two tentacle types. a Principal Component Analysis plot for sweeper tentacles (blue) and catch tentacles (red). Each point represents tentacles collected from a single colony of G. facsicularies. b A heatmap showing the expression patterns of differentially expressed genes between the ST and CT (log10 Fragments Per Million or FPM). Note the variability between the four biological replicates from paired tentacles and three biological replicates from the body. c Gene Ontology terms enriched in the sweeper and catch tentacles. The reference represents the abundance of these terms in the full transcriptome. d Differences in the expression of putative mucin-encoding genes between the CT and the ST
