Categories of cellular gene functions. Our list of modulated genes was classified by categories of cellular functions using a data mining software (Ingenuity Pathway Analysis®). The analysis identified the biological functions that were the most significant to the gene list results. The significant genes associated with biological functions in the knowledge database (gene functions described in published papers) were considered for the analysis. The Fischer exact test was used to calculate a p-value determining the probability that each biological function assigned to that data set is due to chance alone. In the present figure, protein synthesis, apoptosis, cellular movement, growth and proliferation are the main significant cellular functions (p < 0.05) that are associated to the modulated genes.
