Schematic pathway showing the involvement of the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in signal transduction pathways. DEGs isolated from N. tabacum at two and four days after infiltration in response of βC1 are involved in different pathways during host protein interactions and also segregate in specific cellular compartments. Chaperons, CRCK2 and WRKY transcription factors involved in Ca+ dependent signalling, salicylic acid signalling, osmotic and oxidative stress signalling and pathogen defence signalling pathways. In contrast, NADH, Reisky iron sulphur protein and quinone protein are related to mitochondrial and chloroplast sysstems and act as electro carriers for respiration, photosynthesis by ATP synthesis. The collective role of these DEGs are in defence, cell protection, respiration, photosynthesis, detoxification, plant growth and development.
