Analysis of the antisense sequences amplified for the 3'UTR fragment. All amplified sequences from genomic DNA of Oregon-R and GIII (bars in green and orange, respectively) and from total RNA from 3rd instar larvae of Oregon-R and GIII (bars in blue and red, respectively) were used. The bar chart represents the relative abundance of each type of sequence for each subfamily. While the genomic sequences are the same than in the previous figure and the subfamily number is maintained, the amplified antisense RNA sequences show a different proportion for each subfamily. Note the case of subfamily C in GIII, which represents the ~60% of all the antisense HeT-A expressed sequences in this strain.
