Comparison of expressed genes in muscle and reference datasets. (a) A total of 7,070 expressed genes (EGs) are detected in the M0 and M24 profiles of body wall muscle cells, of which 4,188 are common to both datasets. The M0 profile contains 982 genes that are not expressed in the M24 dataset, whereas 1,900 transcripts are exclusively detected in the M24 profile. (b) The combined muscle and reference datasets include 10,939 EGs. Of these transcripts, 6,586 are detected in all datasets whereas 484 genes are exclusive to the combined muscle datasets and 3,869 selectively detected in the reference profiles of all embryonic cells.
