Fig. 5

Confocal imaging of immunolocalized Saglin in the salivary glands of transgenic adult female Anopheles stephensi. a, b A low magnification image (×200) showing the proximal regions of two lateral lobes and a single distal lobe. Fluorescence was detected only in the distal region. c and d High magnification images (×630) of the junction between the proximal and distal regions of two lateral lobes. Each panel consists of three selected optical sections. Fluorescence was only detected in the basal regions of the cells. Red fluorescence (Alexafluor 555) indicates the presence of Saglin and blue fluorescence (DAPI) indicates DNA. Note that the salivary duct in the proximal lateral region non-specifically binds DAPI and does not indicate the presence of DNA
