Table 3 The effect of Ant-275 on blood digestion of Haemaphysalis longicornis. Data are shown as the mean ± SEM

From: MicroRNA-275 and its target Vitellogenin-2 are crucial in ovary development and blood digestion of Haemaphysalis longicornis

Group Change rate of engorged weight (%)a Duration of laying eggs (days) Final weight (mg)b
Ant-275 69.33 ± 1.547* 28.10 ± 0.246* 66.40 ± 1.785***
MsAnt 82.69 ± 0.943 26.30 ± 0.329 37.00 ± 0.875
Non-inj 83.94 ± 0.913 25.33 ± 0.226 35.23 ± 1.003
  1. aThe percentage of change rate of engorged weight was calculated as (engorged weight-final weight)/engorged weight
  2. bFinal weight was the weight on the 30th day after engorgement (female ticks stop laying and die)
  3. *P < 0.05; ***P < 0.0001 (Student’s t-test)
