Genes/contigs with enriched expression in the salivary glands of Frankliniella occidentalis. RNA-seq reads generated from male and female principal and tubular salivary glands collectively [151] and whole bodies (this study) were used for the enrichment analysis. a Venn diagram depicting the overlap in transcript sequences enriched in the salivary glands of males, females, and combined sexes compared respectively to whole bodies. b Percent reads from salivary glands and whole-body RNA-seq datasets mapped to the putative 123 salivary gland-associated sequences. c Number of reads from the female salivary gland RNA-seq dataset mapping to each of the 123 salivary gland-associated sequences. d Reads mapped by fold change for 14 sequences with the highest number of mapped reads denoted in panel c. “Thrips-specific unknown protein” signifies hypothetical proteins with no match to proteins in other organisms and “unknown” indicates uncharacterized proteins in other arthropods. Details of expression and potential functions are denoted in Additional file 2: Table S11 (Excerpt D). e Specific sequences with functional assignments suggesting they are enzymatic, and based on comparison with other insects systems, could be involved in plant feeding and digestion. Details of expression and potential functions are denoted in Additional file 2: Table S11 (Excerpt E)
