Schematic representation of L. longipalpis Clk and vri genes. The coding region of L. longipalpis Clk gene includes 8 exons and 7 introns, while L. longipalpis vri contains 3 exons and 2 introns. The numbers above the exons represent the position where they start, based on the coding sequence. Introns are presented by Roman numerals. Clk intron sizes are as follows: I (62 bp), II (398 bp), III (497 bp), IV (283 bp), V (357 bp), VI (72 bp), VII (538 bp). For vri, intron sizes are: I (11139 bp) and II (969 bp). Functional domains are colored in green (bHLH), yellow (PAS) and purple (poly-Q) for Clk, and in blue (bZIP) for vri
