The expression profiles of DOPAL synthase gene with gapdh as the reference gene. Bars represent the standard deviation. a Temporal expression of DOPAL synthase in different developmental stages. b Spatial expression of DOPAL synthase in different tissues of Ae. aegypti. c Sex-different expression of DOPAL synthase in the cuticle of female and male adults.
