Findings strongly argue for a functional role for retinoids in primitive insects and favor a model where signaling through the binding of 9-cis-RA to its RXR is established relatively early in evolution and embryonic development.

Hemolymph was collected for analysis from the silkworm in a series of developmental stages ranging from the second molt to the late pupa, indicating the presence of low molecular weight sugar derivatives and the mean pH of larval hemolymph after collection was found to be 6.45; in vivo values may be slightly lower.
Fat body protein granules and storage proteins in the silkmoth, Hyalophora cecropia
It is concluded that the fat body of the late, feeding larva synthesizes two related "storage proteins" and secretes them in partially crystalline granules as protein reserves for metamorphosis.
An ubiquitous interspersed DNA sequence family in an insect.
The genome of the African migratory locust, Locusta migratoria, contains an interspersed DNA sequence family, designated the Lm1 family, which consists of short, widely dispersed, highly reiterated repeat units, which account for about 2% of the locust genome.
The chemistry of insect hemolymph; organic components of the hemolymph of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, and two other species.
1. Hemolymph was collected for analysis from the silkworm, Bombyx mori, in a series of developmental stages ranging from the second molt to the late pupa. The mean pH of larval hemolymph after…
A New Pyrimidine Base from Bacteriophage Nucleic Acids
THE pyrimidine cytosine1 and its deoxynucleotide2 have been reported as constituents of the deoxyribonucleic acids of coliphages T2 and T6 respectively, but in another analysis of T23 no cytosine…
Ligand specificity and developmental expression of RXR and ecdysone receptor in the migratory locust.
The heat shock response inLocusta migratoria
There appears to be no substantial translational control in the locust heat shock response, since other proteins are produced, albeit with some reduction, under heat shock conditions.
