Transmission of rec Sodalis to the F
generation was evaluated. Recombinant and total Sodalis numbers were estimated as described above in abdomen and thorax of the F1 progeny (freshly emerged) produced by streptozotocin-treated female flies injected with 5 × 104 CFU of Sod_pFliCpelBNb46fliC. Data points represent the mean recSodalis and total Sodalis CFU (DNA equivalent) ± SD present in the respective tissues of at least 5 individual flies at the time of sampling. The number of CFU (DNA equivalent) is represented in log scale on the y-axis.
