Fig. 7

Ad libitum access to BSA-, HGB- or tryptone-sucrose variably activates markers of the of the vitellogenic phase in Ae. aegypti. Females were 4 days post-emergence when each feeding treatment began, which is indicated as day 1 on each graph. Each marker was then measured on the first day females were fed and at 24-h intervals thereafter. ah Same markers as measured in blood- and sugar-fed control females as defined in Fig. 6
