'Inversed' correlations between gene regulation in testis development and chromatin modifications in somatic cells. For each of the developmental time points indicated on the horizontal axis, correlations were calculated between up-regulation of genes in testis relative to the earliest time point (from microarray data) and binding of the same genes to the shown chromatin proteins in embryos or somatic cells [29,30]. Yellow, orange, and purple colors represent proteins that are generally associated with gene silencing, and blue and green colors represent proteins generally associated with active gene expression.
