Functional pathways with significant differential expression in rings, trophozoites and schizonts of artemisinin resistant and sensitive parasites. Gene sets (functional groups) which are denoted in the graphs are obtained from various data sets of previous studies [63,66,70] and plotted are all pathways that are significantly differentially expressed in artemisinin resistant parasites in at least one IDC stage. For each pathway, each data point at ring (14 hpi), trophozoite (26 hpi) and schizont (34 hpi) of the resistant (green triangle) and sensitive (blue diamond) series was calculated from taking the average of the expression log2 ratio of a gene across all isolates in that phenotypic group (resistant or sensitive) and then averaged for all the genes associated with that pathway. Best fit polynomial curves were plotted (lines). Error bars indicate the standard deviation among the isolates for that pathway. Included separately are the average expression ratios of all genes belonging to that pathway for CP022 isolate (purple circle) from Pailin, Cambodia and reference in vitro strain (red square).
