Summary results of the biological mechanism of the NPR1-based defence response. a plotted using the PINV tool [113] is a protein-process map showing NPR1-associated plant defence proteins and enriched processes in which they are involved, and the number of enriched processes in which each protein is involved is shown in (b). Note that processes in which all proteins are involved are not displayed in (a) to avoid that high number of links limits visibility. c plotted using the Cytoscape tool [114] displays NPR1-based process regulatory network, showing possible process occurrence sequences and (d) shows the number of proteins involved in or frequency of each enriched process. The suffix +, , ×, or − were added to enriched process according to the fact all NPR1-associated plant defence proteins are involved in the process (+), or set of proteins involved in the process contains all NPR1-associated plant defence proteins are implicated in the Plant-pathogen interaction (×) or Plant hormone signal transduction (−) or both () pathways
