Locust retinoid X receptors: 9-Cis-retinoic acid in embryos from a primitive insect
The retinoid X receptor (RXR) is activated by its often elusive cognate ligand, 9-cis-retinoic acid (9-cis-RA). In flies and moths, molting is mediated by a heterodimer ecdysone receptor consistingExpand

The heat shock response inLocusta migratoria
SummaryLocusta migratoria adults reared at 27–30°C die after 2 h at 50°C, but they survive this temperature stress if first exposed to 45°C for 0.5 to 4.5 h. Fat bodies from adult females produce aExpand

Ligand specificity and developmental expression of RXR and ecdysone receptor in the migratory locust.
The ecdysone receptor(1), which is a heterodimer of EcR and the retinoic acid receptor (RXR) homolog, Ultraspiracle (USP), has been well studied in the evolutionarily advanced and derived insects,Expand
