Interaction networks of the significant genes and their interacting partners.
(A) Shown are the genes (color nodes) that have, as a function of presence (CP-AD + P-AD) or absence (N) of AD pathology, significantly different correlation of co-expression with their partners. Green nodes indicate genes that are significantly differently expressed between patient groups, while light blue nodes indicate genes that are not significantly differently expressed. Edge colors represent the correlation between a gene and each of its partners. (B) MYC and its interacting partners. Note that the significant genes and their partners form an interconnected network, and despite the interactions involving MYC are not significantly altered, it has a lot of connections, playing an important role as a hub gene. CP-AD, clinic-pathological Alzheimer’s disease; P-AD, pathological/preclinical Alzheimer’s disease; N, normal samples (controls).
