Table 1 Significant enrichment of genes induced during leaf senescence and EIN2-dependent leaf senescence among those induced in unfertilised pistils from 0 to 2 DPA

From: Ethylene is involved in pistil fate by modulating the onset of ovule senescence and the GA-mediated fruit set in Arabidopsis

Term Genes in platform Positives in pistil % genes in pistil % genes in platform Odds ratio p-value
EIN2-dependent Leaf Senescence 75 25 3.4 0.3 2.65 4.6 E-18
Leaf Senescence 826 179 24.6 3.3 2.28 3.8 E-92
  1. p-value: < 0.05 in a Fisher's exact test after Benjamini and Hochberg correction. Platform: gene set (20,560 genes) shared by Qiagen-Operon AROS [4] and Affymetrix ATH1 [28] microarrays. Odds ratio in Loge.
