It is strongly suggested that HvTPS is essential for the normal growth and development of H. vitessoides and provide a reference for further studies of the utility of key genes involved in chitin and lipid biosynthesis for controlling insect development.

It is found that 3 μg of dsNAG1 resulted in optimal interference at 48 and 72 hr after injection, causing a decrease in NAG1 protein content, which resulted in abnormal or lethal phenotypes, and a sharp decrease in the survival rate.
Chitin deacetylase 1 and 2 are indispensable for larval-pupal and pupal-adult molts in Heortia vitessoides (Lepidoptera: Crambidae).
Multiple Glutathione S-Transferase Genes in Heortia vitessoides (Lepidoptera: Crambidae): Identification and Expression Patterns
The HvGST genes were significantly higher in the fourth-instar larvae following exposure to the insecticides chlorantraniliprole and beta-cypermethrin, respectively, and are potential candidates involved in the detoxification of these two insecticides.
Identification and characterization of the catalase gene involved in resistance to thermal stress in Heortia vitessoides using RNA interference.

These findings provide molecular references for the selection of novel insecticidal targets in the Heortia vitessoides Moore transcriptional library and suggest that there is feedback regulation in the juvenile hormone metabolic pathway.
Induced expression of three heat shock proteins mediated by thermal stress in Heortia vitessoides (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)
The results suggest that HSP60, HSP70, and HSP90 play a major role in protecting H. vitessoides against high‐temperature stress.

A transcriptome generated from four developmental stages of Heortia vitessoides Moore, a defoliator of the agarwood tree, showed that the transcription levels of CYP4 and CYP6 genes significantly increased in the fourth-instar larvae following exposure to the insecticides chlorantraniliprole and beta-cypermethrin, respectively.
Cloning, Expression Analysis, 20-Hydroxyecdysone Induction, and RNA Interference Study of Autophagy-Related Gene 8 from Heortia vitessoides Moore
Stage- and tissue-specific expressions indicated that HvATG8 is highly expressed in prepupal, pupal, and adult stages and in the midgut of larvae and abdomen of adults, suggesting that the two genes are interconnected.
