Effects of period (per) and cycle (cyc) RNA interference on juvenile hormone-regulated gene expression in Riptortus pedestris. Northern blotting for cyanoprotein-α (CP-α; top), vitellogenin (Vg; middle) and transferrin (Tf; bottom) was performed with total RNA isolated from the whole bodies of females injected with per or cyc double-stranded RNA or saline, and transferred from short-day to long-day conditions or maintained continuously under short-day conditions. Ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) are shown as references.
