Figure 8

Longitudinal evaluation of Rhodnius prolixus infected with Dm28c-luc . Evaluation of insect infection by bioluminescent imaging was performed, for a month, in vivo with the insects that were labeled with green (A) and red (B) ink, before dissection. Digestive tract evaluation, from the same infected insects, by ex vivo bioluminescent imaging (A and B). The bioluminescent regions, from insects and digestive tract, were selected in the image by the ROI measurement tool and the radiance quantified by Living Image® software (C).
