Quantitative detection of Asaia in organs of three different lab-reared mosquito species obtained by qPCR. The relative amount of the bacteria is expressed as a ratio of bacterial 16S rRNA and mosquito rps7 genes (An. stephensi and Ae. albopictus) or rps3 gene (Cx. quinquefasciatus) copies in a logarithmic scale. Abundance results from the mean±SEM of six pools (10 organs) for each species. Statistically significant differences are represented by asterisks (p<0.01) as determined by multiple comparisons using Mann Whitney test
