Positive intensity signals are represented by '+' according to the following scale (+ = <50, ++ = 51–100 and +++ = >150. Crosses 'x' represent signals that were deemed unreliable as they did not pass quality control. All results are based on averages of at least two independent hybridisations containing dual representation of each gene.
