The adverse effects of phoxim exposure in the midgut of silkworm, Bombyx mori.
The silkworm is an important economic insect. Poisoning of silkworms by organophosphate pesticides causes tremendous loss to the sericulture. In this study, Solexa sequencing technology was performedExpand
Effects of TiO2 NPs on Silkworm Growth and Feed Efficiency
Silkworm (Bombyx mori) (B. mori) is an economically important insect and a model species for Lepidoptera. It has been reported that feeding of low concentrations of titanium dioxide nanoparticlesExpand
Molecular Mechanisms of Reduced Nerve Toxicity by Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles in the Phoxim-Exposed Brain of Bombyx mori
Bombyx mori (B. mori), silkworm, is one of the most important economic insects in the world, while phoxim, an organophosphorus (OP) pesticide, impact its economic benefits seriously. Phoxim exposureExpand
Effects of Feeding Silkworm with Nanoparticulate Anatase TiO2 (TiO2 NPs) on Its Feed Efficiency
This study aimed to investigate the effects of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) on feed efficiency of silkworm (Bombyx mori) (B. mori). The results showed that the amount of ingested foodExpand

Silkworm (Bombyx mori), a model Lepidoptera insect, is economically important. Its growth and development are regulated by endogenous hormones. During the process of transition from larvae to pupae,Expand
Effects of chlorantraniliprole exposure on detoxification enzyme activities and detoxification-related gene expression in the fat body of the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Chlorantraniliprole (CAP) can induce excessive calcium release from muscle of insects, causing muscle paralysis until death, and its residues in farmland can cause poisoning in Bombyx mori (B. mori),Expand
Effects of phoxim on nutrient metabolism and insulin signaling pathway in silkworm midgut.
Silkworm (Bombyx mori) is an important economic insect. Each year, poisoning caused by phoxim pesticide leads to huge economic losses in sericulture in China. Silkworm midgut is the major organ forExpand
