B. burgdorferi has no impact on the expression of nine I. scapularis oatps in unfed nymphal ticks. Results from QRT-PCR assays are shown in all panels. a-i Expression of nine I. scapularis OATPs: isoatp-0726 (a), -2114 (b), -2116 (c), -4056 (d), -4134 (e), -4548 (f), -4550 (g), -5126 (h) and -5621 (i) in unfed uninfected or B. burgdorferi-infected ticks. Levels of tick kat (j) or spirochete flaB (k) mRNA in B. burgdorferi-infected unfed nymphal ticks are also shown. Uninfected ticks were used as controls in all panels. In all panels, open circles represent data from uninfected (UI) and closed circles represent data from infected (I) ticks. Each circle represents data from one tick. The amount of mRNA levels of flaB or oatps or kat was normalized to the amount of tick beta-actin mRNA levels. The P-values indicate the results from statistical analyses
