Wolbachia wMel strain affects egg impermeability acquisition during embryonic development. Wild-type (Br) and Rockefeller (Rock) and Wolbachia-infected (wMelBr) eggs were air-dried at different times over embryonic development, and the percentage of intact ones (not shrunken) was registered. Non-linear regression analysis suggests that the presence of wMel influences impermeabilization in developing eggs (a.k.a. egg resistance to desiccation phenotype) (F-test, F(8,47) = 30.20, P < 0.0001). Data are shown by means (± SEM) of three independent experiments
