Treatment of tick cells with OATP inhibitor affects oatps and kat gene expression. Data from QRT-PCR assays are shown in all panels. Expression of nine I. scapularis OATPs: isoatps-0726 (a), -2114 (b), -2116 (c), -4056 (d), -4134 (e), -4548 (f), -4550 (g), -5126 (h), -5621 (i) and kat (j) mRNA levels in LGTV-infected mock- or OATP-inhibitor (SPZ)-treated tick cells at 24 h pi. In all panels, open circles or closed circles represent data from LGTV-infected mock- or SPZ-treated tick cells at 24 h pi, respectively. Each circle represents data from one cell culture well. The oatps and kat mRNA levels were normalized to the tick beta-actin mRNA levels. The P-values indicate the results from statistical analyses
