cinerea and salicylic acid - highlighting different responses of
some common genes
There have been many publications suggesting that a salicylic acid
signalling pathway is a component of the response of Arabidopsis to
infection by Botrytis cinerea.
Using the Venn diagram software we see that within the DRASTIC gene
expression database there are 90 genes which are regulated by both Botrytis cinerea and by salicylic
Many of these genes are upregulated by both these treatments confirming
the presence of such a pathway (data not shown) but choosing only those
genes which are regulated differently by these treatments and putting
those AGI numbers into 'Pathway Finder' software on this web site, we
have the following results.
Some of these genes are also regulated by other genes but there is no
obvious pattern amongst this subset
of genes suggesting any other treatment is showing close
similarity to gene expression in response to B. cinerea or salicylic acid.
