Comparison of the environmental stress (ESR), lean (LLD) and high-sucrose liquid dough (HSLD) responses. The set of genes up- (up) or down-regulated (down) 4.0-fold or more (log2 ratio of ± 2) after 60 min of transfer of yeast cells to high-sucrose LD (HSLD) or lean LD (LLD) (see additional file 2), was compared with the ESR genes identified by Gasch et al. , and the number of genes in common are shown in Venn diagrams for both the induced and repressed genes in each case. A) Up- (left) and down-regulated (right) genes in HSLD and LLD were compared with up- and down-regulated ERS genes, respectively. B) Up- (left) and down-regulated (right) genes in HSLD and LLD were compared with down- and up-regulated ERS genes, respectively.
