Fig. 5. Developmental stage-dependent ion channel genes in thymus. (A) Distribution of the correlation coefficients (ρ) between the ion channel gene expression and age across the 11 organs/tissues. The ρ values were computed using Spearman’s rank correlation test. (B) Cumulative distribution of the ρ values across the 11 tissue types. There are more ion channel genes in thymus with strong positive correlation between expression and age compared with the other organs/tissues. (C) The top eight ion channel genes showing the strongest positive correlation between expression and age (ρ > 0.9) in thymus. TPM, transcripts per million.
