Correlation curves between Asaia and P. berghei amounts in An. stephensi midguts. Relative quantities of Asaia obtained from ten individuals presented on a logarithmic scale and the corresponding parasite numbers were reported at 24, 48 and 72 h after the infected blood meal (A, B and C respectively). The average numbers of parasites (Anp) and the curve slopes (Y) were shown. Analysis of linear regression revealed p values <0.05 obtaining a similar correlation curve (R2) at 48 h and 72 h.
