Table 4 Number of leptospiral genes differentially expressed in response to serum compared with the effects of temperature and osmolarity shiftsa

From: Global transcriptomic response of Leptospira interrogans serovar Copenhageni upon exposure to serum

Serum effect Temperature effect Osmolarity effect Temperature and osmolarity effect
  Up-regulated Down-regulated Up-regulated Down-regulated Up-regulated Down-regulated
Up-regulated (%b) 5 (9.1) 2 (3.6) 11 (20) 0 (0) 3 (5.6) 0 (0)
Down-regulated (%c) 9 (8) 3 (2.7) 2 (1.8) 14 (12.4) 0 (0) 2 (1.8)
  1. acompared with previous microarray data of overnight 37°C [11] and osmolarity upshifts [13]
  2. bpercentage of genes up-regulated in response to serum and/or temperature and/or osmolarity shifts per total number of genes up-regulated in response to serum (55 genes)
  3. cpercentage of genes down-regulated in response to serum and/or temperature and/or osmolarity shifts per total number of genes down-regulated in response to serum (113 genes)
