Amino-acid catabolism in fasting liver. The map was created in the GenMAPP suite to show a comprehensive overview of amino-acid metabolism in response to fasting. Warm colors (from yellow to red) represent down-regulation, while cold colors (light blue to dark green) indicate an induction (see scale on the right border of the figure). Gray indicates no significant change. Genes not coupled to reporters on the array are shown in white. Genes represented by more than one sequence on the array are shown in dash-lined boxes, with the level of change depicted by the colored line surrounding the field. Each gene-box is split into 3 units, representing (from left to right) a change in expression after 12, 24 and 72 hours of fasting compared to fed animals.
