  2. Glandular β-glucosidases in juvenile Chrysomelina leaf beetles support the evolution of a host-plant-dependent chemical defense

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 58:28 (2015) PMID 25596091

    Plant-feeding insects are spread across the entire plant kingdom. Because they chew externally on leaves, leaf beetle of the subtribe Chrysomelina sensu stricto are constantly exposed to life-threatening predators and parasitoids. To counter these pressures, the juveniles repel their e...

  5. Identification of differentially expressed microRNAs in Culex pipiens and their potential roles in pyrethroid resistance

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 55:39 (2014)

    Pyrethroids are the major class of insecticides used for mosquito control. Excessive and improper use of insecticides, however, has resulted in pyrethroid resistance, which has become a major obstacle for mosquito control. The development of pyrethroid resistance is a complex process i...
  6. Re-examination of a α-chymotrypsin-solubilized laccase in the pupal cuticle of the silkworm, Bombyx mori: Insights into the regulation system for laccase activation during the ecdysis process

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 55:61 (2014)

    The laccase in the pupal cuticle of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, is thought to accumulate as an inactive precursor that can be activated stage-dependently. In this study we isolated an 81-kDa laccase from cuticular extract of B. mori that was prepared by digestion of the pupal cuticles w...

  8. A novel β-fructofuranosidase in Coleoptera: Characterization of a β-fructofuranosidase from the sugarcane weevil, Sphenophorus levis

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 55:31 (2014)

    β-fructofuranosidases or invertases (EC 3.2.1.26) catalyze the hydrolysis of sucrose into fructose and glucose. β-fructofuranosidases have been widely described in microorganisms, but were not known in the animal kingdom until very recently. There are studies reporting lepidopteran β-f...
  9. Spatial and temporal synthesis of Mamestra configurata peritrophic matrix through a larval stadium

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 54:89 (2014) PMID 25240619

    The structure and synthesis of the Mamestra configurata peritrophic matrix (PM) was examined at various time points during a larval stadium. Bright field and confocal fluorescence microscopy revealed major differences between the PM of feeding and molting larvae. The PM from feeding la...
  10. An N-acetyllactosamine-specific lectin, PFA, isolated from a moth (Phalera flavescens), structurally resembles an invertebrate-type lysozyme

    Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 54:106 (2014) PMID 25257940

    PFA (Phalera flavescens agglutinin) lectin purified from larvae of the lobster moth (P. flavescens) shows a strong binding ability specific to the N-acetyllactosamine (Galβ1-4GlcNAc) site. We determined the genomic and cDNA sequences of the PFA gene, which consists of five exons and sp...
