New insights into peritrophic matrix synthesis, architecture, and function.
The peritrophic matrix (PM) is a chitin and glycoprotein layer that lines the invertebrate midgut. Although structurally different, it is functionally similar to the mucous secretions of theExpand

Attraction of the diamondback moth (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) to volatiles of Oriental mustard: the influence of age, sex, and prior exposure to mates and host plants.
A Y-tube behavioral bioassay was developed to investigate attraction of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.), to volatiles from host plants. During the scotophase, male and female mothsExpand

A chitin deacetylase and putative insect intestinal lipases are components of the Mamestra configurata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) peritrophic matrix
One‐ and two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with liquid chromatography‐tandem mass spectrometry (LC‐MS/MS) was used to identify cDNA encoding a chitin deacetylase (McCDA1) and three insectExpand
