Dynamics of WSP challenge in mosquito cells. qRT-PCR analyses in 4a3A (A) and Aa23T (B) cell lines at 3, 9 and 24h after WSP challenge detect significant upregulation for all tested genes at 3h post-challenge. With the exception of CEC1 and GAMB, mRNA levels return back to control levels at 24h. Relative expressions were calculated to pkWSP-challenged cells and represent the average of 4 biological repeats +/- SE. Statistical analysis where performed using Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test (*p<0.05, **p<0.01).
