Fig. 3

Temporal relative abundance of proteins in saliva of uninfected and Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) infected Ixodes scapularis nymphs. Relative abundance (based on average normalized spectral abundance factors) for each functional category is expressed as a percent (%) of total protein content of unfed and 12, 24, and 36 h fed ticks (a) and 48, 60, 72h, and replete fed ticks (b). Please read the key from left to right and the pie chart in a clockwise direction, starting from the antimicrobial peptides (grey color). Please note that antimicrobial peptides are absent in unfed ticks, and are less than 1% in Bb infected ticks
