The global differences in the dynamics of the transcriptome in the early developing kernels between ILa and ILb. (a) Total DEG numbers from the three transcriptome pairs between ILa and ILb at different developing time. The total DEG number peaked in a8/b8 (1261) and down to the lowest in a10/b10 (530) transcriptome pair, more than half the DEGs were up-regulated in all the three (a5/b5, a8/b8 and a10/b10) transcriptome pair. a5 or b5 is the transcriptome from ILa or ILb kernel at 5 DAP, and so on for a8, b8 and a10, b10. (b) Small amount of DEGs overlapped between/among the different transcriptome pairs between ILa and ILb. (C) GO analysis indicates that most of the DEGs from the three transcriptome pairs were enriched in biological processes like defense response to biotic stress and abiotic stress, with molecular function like catalytic or hydrolase or oxidoreduction activity. Significant difference in “response to hormone stimulus” was observed between ILa and ILb at 5 DAP and 8 DAP. (D) KEGG pathway enrichment analysis with the DEGs from the three transcriptome pairs. Notably, ‘starch and sucrose metabolism’, ‘plant hormone signal transduction’ and ‘plant-pathogen interaction’ were all enriched with abundant DEGs from a5/b5, a8/b8 and a10/b10 transcriptome pairs
