Hormone-responsive genes are circadian regulated. The proportions of clock-regulated genes among all that are upregulated or downregulated by each phytohormone are plotted as columns. Asterisks indicate statistically significant circadian enrichment (P < 0.05). The overlaid polar plots show the average circadian phases of expression for the hormone-responsive genes. The white and shaded portions of each polar plot represent subjective day and night, respectively, with subjective dawn at the left and subjective dusk at the right. The longer the arrow, the greater the degree of phase consolidation for each group of circadian-regulated genes.
