Fold changes (FCs) shown were statistically significant (i.e., Benjamini and Hochberg corrected value and absolute consistency across all replicate experiments). A negative sign before values indicates downregulation. A dash “—" indicates that no statistical difference was observed. WT and mutant (Mut) refer to wild-type Y. pestis CO92 and its lpp mutant, respectively. C: control (uninfected) mice.
