Relationships between metabolic pathways or disorders and genes. The analysis of the main metabolic pathways and their dysfunctions was performed using a data mining software (Predictsearch®). Briefly, gene aliases corresponding to the significant modulated genes were submitted as queries to PubMed in order to collect titles and abstracts of all related publications. The PubMed ID of the related publications were indicated on the figures 6, 7 and 8. The results showed that the more frequent biological activities cited in relationship with the set of genes were glycolysis, respiratory chain, hypoxia, glycogen synthase and inflammatory myopathy.
