General features of the chilling stress response transcriptome of japonica rice (cv. Nipponbare) based on the analysis of expression profiles across 10 time points. The composition of the non-overlapping upregulated (2,604 genes) and downregulated (6,064 genes) components are indicated. Venn diagram also shows the overlap between chilling and H2O2 response transcriptomes. For the upregulated component, 1,088 genes (86 transcription factors + 1,002 non-transcription factors) were induced by chilling but not by exogenous H2O2 and 1,516 genes (62 transcription factors + 1,454 non-transcription factors) were induced by both chilling and exogenous H2O2. For the downregulated component, 3,843 genes (266 transcription factors + 3,577 non-transcription factors) were repressed by chilling but not by exogenous H2O2 and 1,516 genes (82 transcription factors + 2,139 non-transcription factors) were repressed by both chilling and exogenous H2O2.
