Table 4 The effect of Ant-184 on the rate of change of engorged and final weight

From: Localized expression and inhibition effect of miR-184 on blood digestion and oviposition in Haemaphysalis longicornis (Acari: Ixodidae)

Group Rate of change of engorged weight (%)a Final weight (mg)b
Non-injected 73.3 ± 1.31 51.6 ± 0.30
Ms-Ant 74.2 ± 1.57 52.1 ± 0.39.
Ant-184 62.7 ± 0.56 66.6 ± 1.05
  1. aThe percentage of rate of change of engorged weight was calculated as: (engorged weight − final weight)/engorged weight
  2. bFinal weight was the weight on day 30 after engorgement (female ticks stop laying and die)
