ac DE transcripts of the immune deficiency (IMD) and Toll pathways of Rhodnius prolixus in response to bacterial injections. Diagrams represent a IMD and b Toll pathway models in R. prolixus. Arrows represent the activation while blunt-ended lines represent the suppression of processes or molecules. Underscored and bolded molecules are transcripts with differential expression in at least one comparison between two treatments. The molecules marked with an asterisk have not been studied in triatomines. c Heat maps showing DE transcripts from the IMD and Toll pathways 8 hpi and 24 hpi with PBS, Gr− or Gr+ bacteria. Accession numbers are provided for annotated genes. The color of each cell indicates expression level. Displayed transcript expression values are the log 2 trimmed mean of M values (TMM) average of the replicates of each treatment divided by the average TMM expression of all treatments. For raw TMM values, see Additional file 1. For other abbreviations, see Fig. 1
