The complete mitochondrial genomes of two ghost moths, Thitarodes renzhiensis and Thitarodes yunnanensis: the ancestral gene arrangement in Lepidoptera
Characterization of the two ghost moth mitogenomes has enriched the knowledge of Lepidoptera mitagenomes and contributed to the understanding of the mechanisms underlying mitogenome evolution, especially gene rearrangements. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two band-winged grasshoppers, Gastrimargus marmoratus and Oedaleus asiaticus
Characterization of the two mitochondrial genomes has enriched knowledge on mitochondrial genomes of Orthoptera and confirmed that the species from the suborder Caelifera form a monophyletic group, as is the case for the Ensifera. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of the Russian wheat aphid Diuraphis noxia: large repetitive sequences between trnE and trnF in aphids.
To characterize aphid mitochondrial genome features, the complete mitogenome of the Russian wheat aphid, Diuraphis noxia, revealed distinctMitogenome architectures, thus advancing the understanding of insect mitogenomic diversities and evolution. Expand
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence of the Planthopper, Sivaloka damnosus
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence was determined from the plant hopper, Sivaloka damnosus Chow and Lu (Hemiptera: Issidae), a representative of the insect family Issidae, and shows stable canonical clover-leaf structures similar to other insect mitochondrial tRNAs. Expand
The compact mitochondrial genome of Zorotypus medoensis provides insights into phylogenetic position of Zoraptera
The phylogenetic analyses based on the mitogenome sequence information indicate that Zoraptera, represented by Z. medoensis, is recovered as sister to Embioptera, however, both Zor adaptera and Embioptera exhibit very long branches in phylogenetic trees. Expand
Mitochondrial genomes reveal the global phylogeography and dispersal routes of the migratory locust
Genetic differences, caused by the long‐term independent diversification of the two lineages, along with other factors, such as geographic barriers and temperature limitations, may play important roles in maintaining the present phylogeographic patterns. Expand
Mitochondrial genome characterization of the family Trigonidiidae (Orthoptera) reveals novel structural features and nad1 transcript ends
Six mitogenomes from its two subfamilies were determined and combined comparative analysis and transcript verification revealed that nad1 transcripts ended with a U, corresponding to the T immediately preceding a conserved motif GAGAC in the superfamily Grylloidea, plus poly-A tails. Expand
Comparative analysis of mitochondrial genomes of the superfamily Grylloidea (Insecta, Orthoptera) reveals phylogenetic distribution of gene rearrangements.

The mitogenome-based phylogenetic trees suggest strongly the familial relationships as Phalangopsidae, Gryllidae, and Trigonidiidae, as well as the exclusive occurrence of the trnE-trnS1- trnN rearrangement in PhAlangops family, which is suggestive of its appearance in the common ancestor of these families after the separation of Mogoplistidae.

Mechanistic insight into binding interaction between chemosensory protein 4 and volatile larval pheromones in honeybees (Apis mellifera).
Novel insight is gained into the binding mechanism of chemosensory protein with volatile larval pheromones and are important for understanding olfactory interaction of honeybees. Expand
Neuromodulation of Behavioral Specialization: Tachykinin Signaling Inhibits Task-specific Behavioral Responsiveness in Honeybee Workers
It is shown that response thresholds to task-relevant stimuli correspond to the specialization of three behavioral phenotypes of honeybee workers, and TRP-signaling regulates the degree of task-specific responsiveness of specialized honeybees and may control the context-specificity of behavior in animals more generally.
