Expression patterns of Ae. aegypti homologs of previously known miRNAs. Only Ae. aegypti RNA samples were examined. The top panels are northern results and the bottom panels are RNA gel images for verification of small ribosomal RNA and tRNA integrity and loading of total RNA. Emb, pooled embryos between 0-36 hr after egg deposition; Larvae; mixed instar larvae; Pupae, mixed puape; F, adult females one to five days after emergence; M, adult males one to five days after emergence. 10 μg of total RNA were used per sample.
