Knockdown of tick SODs in naïve (uninfected) A. maculatum and the effect on tick antioxidants. aCu/Zn-SOD, bMn-SOD, cCu/Zn-SOD + Mn-SOD dual knockdowns. Gene expression in naïve ticks was normalized against tick β-actin, used as the reference gene. The transcript levels of the target genes in dsLacZ injected tick tissues were made equal to 1 and represented by a dashed line in the graphs. KD; Knockdowns
