Upregulated mRNA levels are displayed as positive values (multiplied by −1). The statistical significance of the effect of genetic origin on gene expressions, in general, is marked with asterisks, where * = P ≤ 0.05, ** = P ≤ 0.01 and *** = P ≤ 0.001. Letters in brackets represent statistical significance among the three origins, the first with the significance level set at P ≤ 0.05 and the second with the Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons, P ≤ 0.017.
