Supplementary tables. Table S1 List of differentially expressed genes identified in this study. Listed genes demonstrate significant expression differences between hibernating and summer active black bears in heart and liver tissues. Genes are ranked by log2FC (Fold Change), P is a significance level. Positive significant genes are up-regulated (positive values of log2FC) and negative significant genes are down-regulated (negative values of log2FC) in hibernating animals. Complete description of the black bear EST collection can be found in The Black Bear Gene Index at http://compbio.dfci.harvard.edu/tgi/cgi-bin/tgi/T_release.pl?gudb=bear webcite. Table S2 Primer sequences used for the real-time PCR tests in this study.
