  1. Targeted mutagenesis of an odorant receptor co-receptor using TALEN in Ostrinia furnacalis.

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2015) PMID 26689645

    Genome editing using transcription activator-like effector nuclease (TALEN) has been applied for various model organisms but not yet for agricultural pest insects. In this study, TALEN-mediated mutagenesis of the gene encoding odorant receptor co-receptor (Orco) of an important agricultural pest ...

  5. Functions of nuclear receptor HR3 during larval-pupal molting in Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) revealed by in vivo RNA interference

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:23 (2015) PMID 26005119

    Our previous results revealed that RNA interference-aided knockdown of Leptinotarsa decemlineata FTZ-F1 (LdFTZ-F1) reduced 20E titer, and impaired pupation. In this study, we characterized a putative LdHR3 gene, an early-late 20E-response gene upstream of LdFTZ-F1. Within the first, se...
  6. Molecular characterization and expression profiles of neuropeptide precursors in the migratory locust

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:63 (2015) PMID 26036749

    Neuropeptides serve as the most important regulatory signals in insects. Many neuropeptides and their precursors have been identified in terms of the contig sequences of whole genome information of the migratory locust (Locusta migratoria), which exhibits a typical phenotypic plasticit...
  7. Drosophila sperm surface alpha-l-fucosidase interacts with the egg coats through its core fucose residues

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:133 (2015) PMID 26101846

    Sperm–oocyte interaction during fertilization is multiphasic, with multicomponent events, taking place between egg's glycoproteins and sperm surface receptors. Protein–carbohydrate complementarities in gamete recognition have observed in cases throughout the whole evolutionary scale. S...
  8. A Fas associated factor negatively regulates anti-bacterial immunity by promoting Relish degradation in Bombyx mori

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:144 (2015) PMID 26101847

    Negative regulation is required to keep NF-κB-dependent immune response under tight control. In previous study, we have identified a Fas associated factor (FAF) family member in Bombyx mori, BmFAF, and proposed it may act as a negative regulator in immune response. In this study, we fo...
  9. Geographic spread, genetics and functional characteristics of ryanodine receptor based target-site resistance to diamide insecticides in diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:14 (2015) PMID 25976541

    Anthranilic diamides and flubendiamide belong to a new chemical class of insecticides acting as conformation sensitive activators of the insect ryanodine receptor (RyR). These compounds control a diverse range of different herbivorous insects including diamondback moth, Plutella xylost...
  10. Panning for sperm gold: Isolation and purification of apyrene and eupyrene sperm from lepidopterans

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 63:152 (2015) PMID 26141489

    We describe a simple and straightforward procedure for the purification and separation of apyrene and eupyrene forms of lepidopteran sperm. The procedure is generally applicable to both butterfly and moth species with results varying according to the relative amounts of sperm produced ...
