dilps-2/5 over-expression from early (dilp2(p)>dilp2 and dilp2(p)>dilp5) or late (dilp2>dilp2 and dilp2>dilp5) larval stages inhibit diapause at 12°C under short photoperiod (LD8:16). Mean ± SD, ANOVA on arcsin transformations, ***p<0.001. The same result is observed with ectopic drivers (see text for details).
