Individual promoters show diverse patterns of variation in noise levels across conditions.
(A) Scatter plot showing the expression plasticity (variance across conditions, horizontal axis) and noise (variance in noise across conditions) of all measured promoters. (B-G) Examples of condition-dependent mean and noise of individual promoters. Each panel shows the noise level as a function of mean across conditions (colors; see legend) for one promoter, with the gene regulated by the promoter indicated in each panel. Error bars denote standard errors of the estimates based on biological replicate measurements. Each of the 3 pairs of panels indicate different types of behavior in mean and noise across conditions, as described at the top of each pair of panels.
