aOver-represented functional classes in the feeding response gene groups. For clarity, gene groups with p>0.001 are
not listed. See Supplemental Data for full comparisons. Gene lists are shown in Supplemental Table [5].
bAll representation factors are significant at p<0.001. The probability was determined using the normal
approximation of the hypergeometric probability distribution.
cFunctional classes are from Proteome except where noted.
dFunctional groups over-represented in the mountains (Kim et al., 2001)
