Dissimilar effects of salt and sucrose upon global gene expression in
. Microarray hybridizations and 2D electrophoresis performed with samples isolated from exponential phase cells immediately before or after exposure to either 110 mM sucrose (suc) or 60 mM NaCl for 30 min. Results shown are the average of three independent biological experiments. Genes and proteins were clustered as following: G1, Higher expression levels in the presence of sucrose or up-regulated only under this stress condition; G2, Down-regulated only under sucrose stress; G3, Higher expression levels in the presence of NaCl or up-regulated only under this stress condition; G4, Lower expression levels in the presence of NaCl or down-regulated only under this stress condition. The complete list of genes and proteins whose expression changed in the presence of either sucrose or NaCl is shown in Additional file 2: Table S2. Gene numbers are according to the CMR (Comprehensive Microbial Resource) annotation.
