Expression profiling of cysteine peptidases and their inhibitors inT. urticae. (A) Number of genes for the different cysteine peptidase and inhibitor groups assigned to the developmental stage (embryo, larvae, nymph and adult) in which their highest expression was detected. (B) Number of genes for the different cysteine peptidase and inhibitor groups assigned to the intervals of normalized expression values (0–10, 10–100, 100–1000, >1000) in which their highest expression was detected, independently of the mite developmental stage analysed. (C) Number of genes for the different cystatin groups (Groups 1 to 4, see Figure 4) assigned to the developmental stage in which their highest expression was detected. (D) Number of genes for the different cystatin groups assigned to the intervals of expression values in which their highest expression was detected, independently of the mite developmental stage analysed.
