Expression patterns of Tc-Piwi/Aub, Ago3 and piRNA primary transcripts antisense to gypsy RNA-dependent DNA polymerase. T. castaneum blastoderm embryos are stained with DAPI (blue) and fluorescently labelled RNA probes (red and green). a In situ hybridization with DNP-labelled probe detecting putative piRNA transcript antisense to gypsy RNA-dependent DNA polymerase exon (red). b T. castaneum embryos at the stage of early blastoderm, differentiated blastoderm, serosal window closure and beginning of germband elongation stained with fluorescently labelled probes against Tc-Piwi/Aub (red) and Tc-Ago3 (green) intronic regions. Selected regions are magnified
