The tissue specific expression of histone genes. Each row of the figure represents a tissue from the GNF Body Atlas (see methods). We show only the top 30 tissues with highest variance of expression of histone genes. Each column represents a histone gene. We use hierarchical clustering to order the rows and columns according to their similarity. Red indicates that the gene is over expressed relative to its mean expression levels across all tissues, and green that it is under expressed. The histone genes that we identify as direct targets of CREB are shown in red in the last row of the figure. We see that many of these are only expressed in a small subset of rapidly dividing tissues along with K562 cells.
