Selected clusters of similar biologic functional terms for genes, the expression of which responded to treatment with prednisolone in a given direction only in patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR); two of the genes in this group of genes (n = 131) also responded in non-PMR controls, but in the opposite direction to that seen in patients. The clusters and the enrichment scores (the geometric means of the EASE scores [24] of all terms in the cluster) were derived using the Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID) tool [23]. Green squares denote that the gene/term association has been positively reported; black squares denote that the gene/term association has not yet been reported. a Cluster with an overall theme of extracellular matrix/cell adhesion processes and with an enrichment score of 5.58. b Cluster with an overall theme of cytoskeleton/microtubule associated processes and with an enrichment score of 2.38. c Cluster with an overall theme of cytoskeleton/actin filament associated processes and with an enrichment score of 1.57
