  1. Species in this survey included Bemisia tabaci, Diuraphis noxia, Tetranychus urticae, Anopheles gambiae, Pediculus humanus humanus, Cimex lectularius, Bombyx mori, Helicoverpa armigera, Apis mellifera, Drosophila melanogaster, and Tribolium castaneum. “Others” refers to uncharacterized genes. The values without parentheses indicate the number of transporters detected; for subfamilies ABCG and ABCH, the values in parentheses indicate the percentage of all ABC transporters represented by the indicated subfamily
