Hc-hrg-2 is a heme-responsive gene. The transcription of Hc-hrg-2 was estimated by qRT-PCR from total RNA obtained from L1s and exsheathed L3s grown at the indicated concentrations of heme. a The abundance of Hc-hrg-2 mRNA in exsheathed L3s.*P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001. b The abundance of Hc-hrg-2 mRNA in L1s. ns: no statistical significance. The results are the means ± SE of 3 independent experiments. The gene expression level was normalized to Hc-actin-1 and the levels of controls at 0 μM heme were set at an arbitrary one unit
