Relative transcript abundance of PMSRP1 encoding mRNA in different tissues of fifth-instar nymphs after 25 cycles in relation to ß-actin , A- Seven days after a blood meal containing T. cruzi strain Dm28c (2 × 106cells/ml), B- Seven days after a parasite-free blood meal (control), C- Fold increase (positive axis) and decrease (negative axis) transcript abundance of PMSRP1 in infected insects (A) compared with the uninfected control (B). Asterisks relates to significant differences (*P < 0.01, **P < 0.001) obtained after statistical analyses using one way ANOVA and Student’s t-test. SG – salivary glands, ST – stomach, SI– small intestine, FB – fat body, HC – hemocytes.
