From: Gene structure and expression characteristics of liver-expressed antimicrobial peptide-2 isoforms in mud loach (Misgurnus mizolepis, Cypriniformes)

Fig. 4

Altered mRNA levels of mud loach LEAP-2A (a) and LEAP-2B (b) during embryonic development (0 to 28 h post fertilization, HPF) and early larval development up to 2 days post hatching (DPH) at 25 °C, as judged by RT-qPCR assay. Day 0 (D0) is the time of just hatching corresponding to 28 HPF. Expression levels were normalized against 18S rRNA gene. LEAP-2 transcripts were not detected at early stages of development. Statistically different means (± s.d., as T bars) are indicated by different letters (a–g in LEAP-2A and a–e in LEAP-2B) based on ANOVA followed by Duncan’s multiple ranged tests (P < 0.05)
