From: Cellular and molecular characterization of a stem rust resistance locus on wheat chromosome 7AL

Category Definition Criteria Total More expressed in

# % # % # %
Constitutive Genes constitutively expressed Always DE between Col and Col-NS, and never DE through time in any genotype 134 38% 59 44% 75 56%
Early Genes putatively involved in the early resistance response DE at 2 DPI between Col and Col-NS, but not at 0 DPI unless DE at 2 DPI, compared to 0 DPI 85 24% 36 42% 49 58%
Late Genes putatively involved in the late resistance response DE at 5 DPI between Col and Col-NS, but not at 0 DPI unless DE at 5 DPI, compared to 0 DPI 78 22% 32 41% 46 59%
Pathogen Genes putatively from the pathogen Not expressed at 0 DPI in any genotype, highly up-regulated in Col at 5 DPI 4 1% 4 100% 0 0%
Miscellaneous Remaining genes   77 22% 9 12% 18 23%
Origin Genes that map at the origin of the resistance (i.e. possible R gene) DE between both Col-NS and Col at 0 DPI, and on chromosome 7L 27 8% 7 26% 20 74%
  1. Criteria used for categorizing the genes found DE between Col and both Col-NS765 and Col-NS766, and the number and percent of the 353 genes of interest in each category
