MTs (metallothioneins) increase the resistance of cells to exposure to high Cu (copper) levels. Characterization of the MT-Cu complex suggests that MT has an important role in the cellular storage and/or delivery of Cu ions to cuproenzymes. In this work we investigate how these properties contribute to Cu homoeostasis by evaluating the uptake, accumulation(More)
In herbivorous insects, the interaction between adult preference and progeny performance on specific host plants is modified by maternal feeding experience and host plant quality. Ultimately, changes in the strength of this interaction can affect insect population dynamics. In this study, we hypothesized that adult host plant preference influences progeny(More)
