Analysis of immune gene expression in aposymbiotic larvae challenged with Sitophilus zeamais primary endosymbiont. Transcript of genes induced by an E. coli challenge were quantitated by qRT-PCR in untreated aposymbiotic larvae (control) and in larvae six hours after a 69 μl injection of either sterile water (sterile) or SZPE cells (heat-killed or viable) obtained from 50 bacteriomes dissected from symbiotic fourth-instar larvae. ESTs were classified according to sequence similarity as in Table 2. Each bar represents the mean of three independent measurements with standard error.
