SjFer0 functions compared between schistosomula and adult schistosomes. ac, g, j dsRNA injection was started on 26 dpi. d-f, h, k dsRNA injection was started on 1 dpi. a, d SjFer0 mRNA expression levels detected by RT-qPCR. Error bars: 95% confidence intervals, n = 4. Asterisks indicate significant difference at ***P < 0.001 and ****P < 0.0001 (t-test). b, e Effect of dsRNA interference on the egg production of schistosomes. The statistics are based on the egg number of each pair of schistosomes in 1 g mouse liver tissue. Error bars: 95% confidence intervals, n = 4. Asterisks indicate signifiant difference at ****P < 0.0001; ns indicates no significant difference (P > 0.05) (t-test). c, f Excised mouse liver. g, h HE staining of liver tissues. j, k Schistosome stained with carmine alum. Observation by fluorescence microscopy. Scale bar: 100 um
