Summary on phenotypes caused by RNAi for TcABC genes
Gene Mortality Mortality Phenotype Phenotype Phenotype
Injection into larvae Injection into pre-pupae Larvae/Pharate pupae Pupae/Pharate adults Adults
TcABCA-9A N/A 30% N/A Wing defects, elytral shortening Wing defects, elytral shortening and blisters
TcABCA-9B N/A 30% N/A Wing defects, elytral shortening Wing defects, elytral shortening and blisters
TcABCB-5A 100% 50% N/A Severe molting and developmental defects during pupal-adult molt Female adults do not produce eggs
TcABCE-3A 100% 100% Arrest in quiescent stage, localized melanization, very small Arrest as pharate adults, no adult eclosion N/A
TcABCF-2A 100% 100% Arrest in quiescent stage, very small Arrest as pharate adults, no adult eclosion N/A
TcABCG-8A 50% 50% Arrest during molting, compound eye already in larvae Wing defects, elytral shortening, dorsal abdomenexposed Elytral shortening
TcABCG-9A 0% 0% No phenotype White eyes White eyes and white Malpighian tubules
TcABCG-9B 0% 0% No phenotype White eyes White eyes and white Malpighian tubules
TcABCG-4C 100% 100% Arrest in quiescent stage, rough cuticle, due to shrinkage and desiccation Arrest in the pupal stage, death before molting Significant reduction in the number of eggs laid, no egg-hatching
TcABCH-9C 100% 100% Arrest in quiescent stage, rough cuticle, due to shrinkage and desiccation abortive larval-pupal molting Significant reduction in the number of eggs laid, no egg-hatching
