Overview and summary of our findings. The two left-hand columns show the time elapsed since parasitoid attack and a diagrammatic summary of major cellular and metabolic consequences of parasitism. The three right hand columns show the results of this study and the gene clusters that we hypothesize are associated with the different processes sketched on the far left. These three columns show the following: over-represented transcription factor binding motifs arranged by cluster (with code number) ordered by their time of maximum expression; average expression profiles of genes in these clusters (parasitized larvae in red, unparasitized larvae in blue) with marked temporal restricted expression; and functional annotations associated with genes in these clusters, in the same order as in the first of the three columns. A group of genes with relatively constant levels of reduced expression in parasitized larvae is shown separately at the bottom.
