Genes up-regulated and down-regulated in pairwise comparisons. (a) Total number of genes significantly up- or down-regulated (as determined by Cuffdiff) in 8 h, 24 h, 48 h and 72 h encystation compared to trophozoites, and 2 h and 8 h excystation, compared to 72 h cysts, is shown. (b) Venn diagram showing overlap between the sets of genes up- or down-regulated in 72 h cysts compared to trophozoites, and genes up- or down-regulated in 8 h excysting parasites compared to 72 h cysts.
