RT-qPCR data validation for transcripts from gene ontology categories. Bars show RT-qPCR results for at least two biological replicates prepared from different pools of animals, validating differential expression changes for transcripts from biological processes. (a) Metabolic processes. (b) Immune response and inflammation. (c) Cell cycle. (d) Response to stress. (e) Developmental processes. (f) Hypothetical proteins. Green line, RNA-Seq results for the regenerative stage; red line, RNA-Seq results for the non-regenerative stage. GenBank IDs are shown in square brackets.
