A: This figure shows the number of the transcripts differentially (DE-shown in red) or not differentially (not DE, shown in blue) expressed in the major life cycle stages studied. The numbers in parentheses represent the numbers of the transcripts expressed in different parasite stages. Any stage-transcripts were expressed in at least one stage. All stage- transcripts were expressed in all stages; Mf, microfilariae; AF, adult females; AM, adult males; 6WF, 6 week females; 6WM, 6 week males; L4, L4 stage, 2 weeks post infection; L3, infective third stage larvae. B: This figure shows the number the transcripts that were specific for each parasite stage. The numbers in the parentheses represent transcripts specific to that stage. The total indicates the sum of all stage-specific transcripts; Other abbreviations are the same as in panel A.
