Comparison of data for selected genes during differentiation, starting from either high density culture, or stumpy forms . To enable the comparison, results from Kabani et al  were converted so that all mRNA levels were expressed relative to the amounts 48 h after the initiation of differentiation, so assuming that the 48 h values were equivalent to established procyclic forms. Values for the low-density cultures and long slender bloodstream forms are shown arbitrarily at time = -24 h. For our results, established procyclic values are shown arbitrarily at 96 h. Times are shown to scale. With the exception of I and J, results from Kabani et al  are in blue and those from this paper, in red; the diamonds for stumpy forms or high-density bloodstream cultures are black. In panels (I) and (J), results for 15 different ribosomal protein genes are shown, for differentiation from stumpy forms (I) or from dense cultures (J).
