Expression analysis of genes involved in the dopamine pathway. (A) Simplified dopamine pathway involving the enzymes phenoloxidase (PO), Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and DOPA-decarboxylase. (B-F) Quantitative PCR of Ebony, DDC and ppo genes in Wolbachia-infected (Wolb+) and uninfected (Wolb-) A. aegypti mosquito heads of three different ages (5, 15 and 30 days-old) (n = 5 for each time point). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001.
