Expression and evolution of cathepsin gene family. a Expression dynamics of 37 cathepsin genes of P. simillimum. Color scale represents the log2(TPM+1) values. b Phylogenetic relation of cathepsins in P. simillimum (green), S. pseudoglobulus (blue) and F. gigantica (red). Maximum likelihood tree. The geometric shapes label the sequences with stage-specific expression in redia (triangle), cercaria (circle) or adult worm (box) of P. simillimum. Abbreviations: R, redia-specific; C, cercaria-specific; M, adult-specific; H, with ubiquitous expression
