Position according to numbering of AJ617740. e) Log2-average ratio of hybridization intensities over all microarray probes covering ACP-196 the presumed transcript during stationary phase versus exponential phase on 3-chlorobenzoate. Semi-tiling array hybridizations confirmed most of the proposed transcripts, including breakpoints, where the slope of the decrease in hybridization intensity as a function of probe position changed abruptly (e.g., regions around position 63,000 and 86,000). An exception here was the RT-PCR detected breakpoint in between ORFs 73676 and 74436, where micro-array hybridizations did not show any aberrant change in slope of signal decrease. From this, therefore, we conclude that the long transcripts of 8.5 and 6 kb mentioned above actually originate from one 14.5 kb-long Decitabine polycistronic mRNA starting at ORF81655 and ending downstream of ORF68241. This transcript would then be rapidly processed in the indicated breakpoint area, although this should be confirmed by alternative techniques. For one other NVP-LDE225 in vitro region the pattern of 5′-3′ decreasing slope did not match the hypothesis of a single transcript predicted from RT-PCR and Northern. This occurred in the area around 92,000 to 96,000 where RT-PCR had predicted a continuing transcript covering a four-gene cluster including ORF91884 (putatively
encoding a DNA topoisomerase) , ORF94175 (putative single-strand DNA binding protein), inrR (the proposed IntB13 activator)  and ORF95213 (hypothetical protein). Indeed, Northerns had already suggested two transcripts here, not completely covering the whole region (Figure 1 and 3), and also tiling array hybridizations showed two or even three differently ‘sloped’ hybridization patterns. Therefore, it might be that there is read-through from ORF94175 into ORF91884, producing the detected RT-PCR connection, but an additional promoter upstream of ORF91884 does not seem unlikely (Table S1). Whereas most of the genes in the ICEclc core region are organized on the minus strand (with respect to the intB13 gene, Figure 1), four genes are oriented on the plus strand.
