Figure S2. Knockdown of nuclease genes in B. tryoni adults by dsRNA injections from Efficiency of RNA interference is improved by knockdown of dsRNA nucleases in tephritid fruit flies

RNAi-mediated knockdown of nuclease genes in B. tryoni adults (50:50 males and females) through hemocoel injections. qRT-PCR analyses were performed on adult whole bodies collected at 24 hours (a,b) and 48 hours (c,d) post-injection. The values represent the means and standard errors for 8 biological replicates. Asterisks indicate significant differences (p<0.05).
