A Comprehensive Analysis of Gene Expression Changes Provoked by Bacterial and Fungal Infection in C. elegans

Figure 3

Peptide length of induced transcripts.

Transcripts up-regulated upon fungal infection are on average shorter than those induced by bacterial infection. All transcripts were divided into five classes based on the length of the encoded proteins as shown (AA: amino acid). Bar diagram showing the percentages of transcripts coding for proteins with a certain length in the list of all transcripts and in the lists of up-regulated transcripts for different pathogens (RNA-seq). All: all transcripts; Dc: D. coniospora; Har: Harposporium sp.; Sm: S. marcescens; Ef: E. faecalis; Pl: P. luminescens.
