mRNA expression of Y-linked transcripts in 12 regions of the prenatal human male brain


The figure shows mRNA expression of Y-linked transcripts in different regions of the male brain during midgestation, as measured in a microarray experiment. Columns in the heatmap denote tissues, as named in the header of the map, and rows designate exon probe sets for the Y-linked genes included in the array data set. Genes and their corresponding probe sets are arranged in order of appearance on the Y-chromosome. Gene locations on the Y-chromosome are shown to the left and the pseudoautosomal region of the chromosome is marked with a green band. The color code at the top of the heatmap represents the elevation of expression levels in each male tissue as compared with the local background signal level for each probe set, which was calculated as the arithmetic mean of the signals in female samples that do not have Y-linked transcripts. The colored bars (orange and purple) to the right of the heatmap illustrate splice variants recognized by each probe set, thin bars denoting that the region is not included in the particular transcript. The double dash \\ denotes that the probe was not associated with any transcript. For more information on this topic, please refer to the article by Reinius and Jazin on pages 988–989.
