Gene knockdowns in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis

This paper describes gene knockdowns in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis by Morpholino antisense oligos, delivered ... of later-acting genes. To overcome this limitation, we designed an Nv eve morpholino overlapping the translation start site, as well as one directed at the exon-intron junction ...
