Connectivity map of a gene network linked to Ranbp2 functions.
Ingenuity pathway analysis (IPA) of factors modulated by loss of Ranbp2 identified a top network implicated in “Cellular and Nervous System Development and Function, and Carbohydrate Metabolism” (score of 22). Dashed and solid blue arrows were added manually to the network to reflect the down-regulation and up-regulation of genes (shown in green and red), respectively, observed first upon ablation of Ranbp2 in cone photoreceptors as identified by this work. Note that Crx and Mpp11 expressions underwent first transient down-modulation at P7 followed by their sustained up-regulation.
