Figure 5

Expression profiles of transcription factor genes and genes associated with major seed-related metabolic pathways during zygotic and somatic embryo maturation. (A) Heatmap of all differentially expressed transcription factors, lipid biosynthesis, flavonoid biosynthesis and seed storage proteins genes during zygotic embryo maturation: Torpedo (T), Early-Full (EF), Late-Full (LF), Mature (M). The differentially expressed genes were grouped into different clusters using the K-means algorithm; (B) Heatmap of all differentially expressed transcription factors, lipid biosynthesis, flavonoid biosynthesis and seed storage proteins genes during somatic embryo maturation: Late Torpedo (LT-SE) and Mature (M-SE) compared to Mature Zygotic Embryo stage (M-ZE). The differentially expressed genes were grouped into different clusters using the K-means algorithm. (C) Results from GO enrichment analyses of all differentially expressed transcription factors, lipid biosynthesis, flavonoid biosynthesis and seed storage proteins genes in ZE and SE. Comparison was done using blast2go software. GO category in blue represents only genes enriched in the ZE group while red presents enrichment only in SE.
