Table 2 Stringent GeneSpring analysis of gene regulation in normal vs. tumor cells in response to 18 hr arginine deprivation.

From: Short-term arginine deprivation results in large-scale modulation of hepatic gene expression in both normal and tumor cells: microarray bioinformatic analysis

  1. 'Change' defined as 2 fold and higher increase (+) or decrease (-) in expression from + arg to - arg. 'NC' (No change) defined as all other genes that were not differentially expressed with a 2 fold and higher change. Main functional classes are shown in the table, with corresponding representative genes in each class. Categorization of genes was performed using GeneSpring software. The number of genes in each class is also shown beside the class in parentheses.
