Levels of Ubx mRNA in transgenic Bicyclus anynana larvae before and after a heat-shock.

A single 3 hr heat-shock lead to nearly a 80 fold increase in Ubx levels in Bicyclus larvae. Note that pre heat-shock levels are near zero because the levels we are measuring correspond to Junonia Ubx (the transgene used), rather than Bicyclus Ubx.
