Identification and expression pattern of the chemosensory protein gene family in the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Insect chemosensory proteins (CSPs) as well as odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) have been supposed to transport hydrophobic chemicals to receptors on sensory neurons. Compared with OBPs, CSPs areExpand
