Regulation of the LWS opsin gene by temperature. a LW (long day/warm temperature)-induction of LWS expression in males (**P < 0.01, t-test; mean + SEM, n = 5). b Effects of castration (Cast) on LWS expression under LW conditions. (P > 0.05, t-test; mean + SEM, n = 4–5). c Effect of testosterone (T), methyltestosterone (MT) and estradiol (E2) on LWS expression under SC conditions (F 3,16 = 1.53, P > 0.05, ANOVA; mean + SEM, n = 5). Veh: vehicle. d Effect of temperature in combination with short-day (SD) and long-day (LD) conditions on LWS expression. Different characters indicate significant differences (F 3,16 = 14.1, P < 0.01, ANOVA; Fisher’s least significant difference (LSD) test; mean + SEM, n = 5)
