Le Roch - Gasch analysis. This file presents the cluster pairs identified as revealing a conservation of coexpression when comparing the Le Roch and Gasch data. This file also provide additional information on the available functional annotations, as well as links to the BLAST alignments and the different databases (click on the '?'s to access PlasmoDB, SGD, and Amigo databases). Gene functional annotations are as follows. The short description immediately following each P. falciparum gene comes from PlasmoDB (red = functional gene, blue = putative gene, black = hypothetical gene). Other annotations are Gene Ontology annotations (red = Molecular Function, green = Biological Process, blue = Cellular Component).

Predicted annotations of P. falciparum gene coding for putative ribosomal proteins (structural constituent of ribosomes, GO:0003735). Prediction gained by co-coexpression analyses compared to PlasmoDB 5.4: (0) confirmed annotation; (1) refined annotation of an incomplete or wrong original functional inference; (2) previously hypothetical; (N): no advance based on co-coexpression analyses; (+) functional inference of hypothetical gene products by Smits et al. (2007) [32]; (*) correction of Smits et al. (2007) annotation; (Z) pair also identified in Zhou et al. (2008) [15]; (x): pairing of P. falciparum and S. cerevisiae or P. falciparum and D. melanogaster genes in co-coexpression analyses.

Predicted annotations of P. falciparum gene products involved in ribosome biogenesis and assembly (GO:0042254), rRNA metabolic process (GO:0016072) and tRNA processing (GO:0008033). Prediction gained by co-coexpression analyses when compared to PlasmoDB 5.4: (0) confirmed annotation; (1) refined annotation of an incomplete or wrong original functional inference; (2) previously hypothetical; (Z) pair also identified in Zhou et al.

Correction of the gene structures and functional inference of PF14_0436 and PF14_0437 based on P. falciparum vs. S. cerevisiae co-coexpression analyses. In co-coxpression analyses, both PF14_0436 and PF14_0437 were in the same expression cluster and with the same yeast sequence, YNL112W, involved in ribosome biogenesis and assembly (GO:0042254, see Add. File 7). Sequence comparison of these contiguous predicted open reading frames shows that they align with both extremities of YNL112W, and that their overlapping region is an error of the gene model, corrected in updated versions of PlasmoDB.
