Transcriptional profiles of SmVAL4, 6, 7, 13, 16 and 24 at different parasite stages. a Relative expression of SmVAL4, SmVAL7 and SmVAL24 genes in germ balls, cercariae, day 3 and day 7 schistosomula. Data were normalized according to 18S ribosomal subunit expression. b Relative expression of SmVAL6, 7, 13 and 16 in the anterior region in adult males in comparison to the remainder parasite body. The data were normalized according to SmActin expression. SmVAL7 was used as a positive control. The schematic drawing illustrates where the parasites were cut to separate the anterior region from the remainder body
