Comparative genomic analysis of duplicated homoeologous regions involved in the resistance of Brassica napus to stem canker

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4585320
PMID: 26442081
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2015.00772

[…] ined genes. We took advantage of the recently released B. napus genome sequence (Chalhoub et al., ) for the structural analysis of the duplicated regions. B. napus—A. thaliana relatedness was used to explore gene ontology (GO) categories and the function of genes located in the duplicated regions. According to the functions of the genes that were retained in all duplicated regions or were specific […]


3T3 Cell Lines Stably Expressing Pax6 or Pax6(5a) – A New Tool Used for Identification of Common and Isoform Specific Target Genes

PLoS One
PMCID: 3285655
PMID: 22384097

[…] ery (DAVID) , was used. We used the lists of up- or downregulated genes (threshold 1) as inputs. A list of all genes on the Illumina Mouse Ref-8 V1.1 chip was provided as reference (background). The eGOn database ( was used to compare the list (both threshold 1 and threshold 2) of upregulated genes with the list of downregulated genes.For Pax […]


Comparison of static immersion and intravenous injection systems for exposure of zebrafish embryos to the natural pathogen Edwardsiella tarda

BMC Immunol
PMCID: 3206475

[…] ffs for the ratios were set at 1.5-fold change at P < 10-4 for analysis at UniGene cluster level and P < 10-5 for analysis at probe level.Gene ontology (GO) analysis was performed using the GeneTools eGOn v2.0 web-based gene ontology analysis software ( []. KEGG pathway analysis was performed using DAVID tools for functional annotation (http://david.abcc.nci […]


ERK1 and ERK2 MAPK are key regulators of distinct gene sets in zebrafish embryogenesis

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 2390552
PMID: 18442396
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-9-196

[…] 0-5 to compensate for multiple testing false positives.For Gene Ontology analysis, the Unigene ID-linked gene expression signature sets of the ERK1 and ERK2 morphants were uploaded into the GeneTools eGOn V2.0 web-based gene ontology analysis software (explore Gene Ontology, database build #97) []. These signature sets comprised 575 Unigene IDs in the case of ERK1 morphants and 2987 Unigene IDs in […]


Transcriptome analysis of the response to chronic constant hypoxia in zebrafish hearts

PMCID: 2200676
PMID: 17828398
DOI: 10.1007/s00360-007-0201-4

[…] ding to known functions (Table ). Genes can have more than one particular function assigned, so some genes can appear in more than one group. In addition, a gene ontology analysis was performed using eGOn to determine gene enrichment and overrepresentation in the three categories of molecular function, biological processes and cellular components (Supplemental Data 1 and 2). Proteinbiosynthesis (T […]


Genomic responses in rat cerebral cortex after traumatic brain injury

[…] falsely identified as regulated among the 150 upregulated 1 dpi and one gene among those identified 4 dpi. Data has been deposited in Gene Expression Omnibus [].We used the web based tool eGOn v 1.0 (explore Gene Ontology, developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology) [] to functionally classify the transcripts. A total of 3414 genes 1 dpi and 2242 genes 4 dpi were deposited in […]
