Microarray experiments. Two independent microarray experiments were performed using pygmy squid head mRNAs and pygmy squid body mRNA using the same microarray design. A) Out of 7,987 human probes, 5,435 and 5,431 probes could detect significant expression of squid genes in head and body, that stands for 68 % of human probes. B) Distribution of expression intensities were shown. Left side graph represents the expression intensities of squid head and body mRNAs detected by human probes. Y-axis represents the cumulative total number of probes, and X-axis represents each expression intensities by log-scale. Right side graph represents the expression intensities of squid head and body mRNAs detected by squid probes.
