We isolated and characterized two members of the alpha-crystallin/sHsp family, SnoHsp19.5 and SnoHsp20.8 from Sesamia nonagrioides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). The cDNAs encoded proteins of 174 and 185 amino acids, with calculated molecular weights of 19.5 and 20.8 kDa, respectively. The deduced amino acid sequences of SnoHsp19.5 and SnoHsp20.8 showed highest(More)
The effects of bisphenol A (BPA) on the endocrine system of vertebrates have been demonstrated in several studies. Here, we report the impact of BPA on the developmental progression and expression of heat shock protein genes on the terrestrial insect Sesamia nonagrioides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). S. nonagrioides 1st instar larvae were exposed until the end(More)
In the present study we investigated the potential relative effects of bisphenol A (BPA) and RH-5992 (tebufenozide) on the development and metamorphosis of the corn stalk borer, Sesamia nonagrioides (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). A number of morphological and molecular factors were examined in order to identify the toxic and the endocrine-relative action of(More)
