From: Combined transcriptome and metabolome analyses to understand the dynamic responses of rice plants to attack by the rice stem borer Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)

Fig. 5

Expression patterns of Chilo suppressalis-induced genes and metabolites involved in the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids, salicylic acid, and phenylpropanoid. a Pathway schematic. Uppercase letters indicate genes that encode enzymes. Metabolites shaded in green were measured. Solid arrows represent established biosynthesis steps, while broken arrows indicate the involvement of multiple enzymatic reactions. SK, shikimate kinase; CM, chorismate mutase; ADT, arogenate dehydratase; PDT, prephenate dehydratase; BGLU, beta-glucosidase; PRX, peroxidase; CCR, cinnamoyl-CoA reductase; PAL, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase; C4H, cinnamic acid 4-hydroxylase; 4CL, 4-coumarate-CoA ligase; HST, shikimate O-hydroxycinnamoyltransferase. b Heatmap of relative expression levels of the genes involved in the schematic pathway. The heatmap was generated from the RPKM data using MeV (V4.9.0). c Metabolite abundance after C. suppressalis infestation; values are means ± SE (n = 10). *, P < 0.05 by Dunnett’s test relative to uninfested controls
