Expression levels of key clock genes for the two strains of S. frugiperda (corn-strain in red and rice-strain in blue). The dots represent individual measurements; the line connects the means for each time point and each strain; the grey shaded area represents the confidence interval. Experiment 1 was conducted over 24 h, experiment 2 over 12 time points. Significant difference between the overall expression pattern of the corn-strain and the rice-strain is indicated by the asterisks. A1-A3. Genes of the first, main feedback loop (period, timeless, cryptochrome 2); B1-B2: Core clock genes connecting both feedback loops (cycle, clock); C1-C2. Genes of the second, modulatory feedback loop (vrille, PAR-domain protein 1; Fig. 4 = C1 and was repeated to facilitate an overview of the key clock genes)
