Indicate down-regulated (suppressed) transcripts following water stress.
Indicate up-regulated (induced) transcripts following water stress.
Indicate new (activated) transcripts following water stress.
(A) Primer combination P2/T7 was effective to identify down-regulated transcripts.
(B) P2/T4.
(C) P2/T8 were good in identifying both down- and up-regulated transcripts.

Figure 1. DDRT profile of stressed and irrigated peanut plants. Differentially displayed bands in DDRT-PCR of total RNA extracted from water stress (S) and irrigated (I) peanut (Arachis hypogaea L. cv. Florunner) plants using different primer combinations (P indicate arbitrary and T indicate anchored primer, for details see Table 1). Two lanes (a, b) under S and I reflect two different dilutions of cDNA used in DDRT reaction.
