a Cluster and pathway analysis of the 87 non-histone transcripts that were affected by all OPV tested revealed a statistically significant overrepresentation of genes involved in inactivation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activity and growth factor signalling. Shown are gene expression changes of the identified genes at 6 h post infection in CPXV-, VACV- or MPXV-infected cells in comparison to mock-infected cells as average fold change (FC) values.

b Values that did not meet the analysis cut-off of an average FC ≥2.0 and p ≤0.05 are designated n.s. (not significant).

c Two values separated by a slash designate values obtained from two different probes on the microarray.
