I did GO enrichment analysis on all of the DE genes, up-regulated genes and down-regulated genes separately.

Since over-represented (enrichment) are easy to understand, I want to know what is the biological significance of under-represented genes?

Can I say under-represented genes have similar biological significance with over-represented (enrichment) down-regulated genes ?

there is no  under-representation test implemented in clusterProfiler.

Yes, I know that. I want to know if it is necessary to do under-represented genes analysis...
