Fold difference in transcription between developmental stages.

<p>This figure displays the relative transcript levels of <i>ace1a</i> and <i>ace1b</i> at 7 different developmental stages of <i>Lepeophtheirus salmonis</i>. The relative expression level of <i>ace1a</i> was significantly higher than <i>ace1b</i>, especially at the copepodid (26 fold) stage and in preadult females (13 fold). The error bars indicate the SD (n = 3) and the experiment was performed in triplicates.</p>
