Table 2 "F-plasmid effect only" genes: similar effects of F-plasmid in both bacterial backgrounds

From: Gene expression analysis indicates extensive genotype-specific crosstalk between the conjugative F-plasmid and the E. coli chromosome

  1. * genes are members of the same operon.
  2. Negative fold-change values indicate down-regulation in F-plasmid free cells.
  3. Genes given in bold are coded on the F-plasmid. Note that the genes were called absent, but rather than setting the expression to zero, we used the hybridization signal detected to calculate the ratio between cells with and without F-plasmid.
