Whole Blood Gene Expression Profile Associated with Spontaneous Preterm Birth in Women with Threatened Preterm Labor

Figure 5

This heat map of the top 50 differentially expressed genes (highest fold changes) displays the hierarchical clustering, consistency and regulation of the gene expression levels.

Elevated gene expressions are indicated in green; down-regulated gene expressions are indicated in red. The colors on the top bars represent women who had a spontaneous preterm birth within 48 hours (red), preterm delivery between 2 to 7 days (green), preterm delivery between 7 days and within 37 weeks of gestation (blue) and women who delivered at term (yellow).
