Table 1 Phenotypes following larval RNAi

From: Cell-specific expression and individual function of prohormone convertase PC1/3 in Tribolium larval growth highlights major evolutionary changes between beetle and fly neuroendocrine systems

  Death as larva Ecdysis phenotype 1 moult completed successfully 2 moults completed successfully
dsRed inj. (n = 10) 0% 0% 100% 100%
PC1/3 RNAi (n = 38) 50% 13% 100% 65%
PC2 RNAi (n = 20) 100% 75% 65% 15%
PC1/3 + PC2 RNAi (n = 21) 100% 100% 33% 0%
  1. The two right-hand columns give proportions of individuals that completed 1 or 2 moults successfully (also including individuals that survived to the pupal stage (PC1/3-RNAi only) and individuals that died but showed no ecdysis phenotype
