Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are a multifunctional supergene family and some play an important role in insecticide resistance. We have identified 23 putative cytosolic GSTs by searching the new assembly of the Bombyx mori genome sequence. Phylogenetic analyses on the amino acid sequences reveal that 21 of the B. mori GSTs fall into six classes(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Chinese Bombyx mandarina (ChBm) was determined. The circular genome is 15682 bp long, and contains a typical gene complement, order, and arrangement identical to that of Bombyx mori (B. mori) and Japanese Bombyx mandarina (JaBm) except for two additional tRNA-like structures: tRNASer(TGA)-like and tRNAIle(TAT)-like.

Based on the advances in the silkworm genome project, a new genome-wide analysis of cytochrome P450 genes was performed. A total of 84 CYP-related sequences were identified and could be classified into 26 families and 47 subfamilies according to standard nomenclature. Seventy eight of the eighty four genes appear to be functional and six are probable(More)
Based on the advances in the silkworm genome project, a new genome-wide analysis of cytochrome P450 genes was performed, focusing mainly on gene duplication. All four CYP9A subfamily members from the silkworm, Bombyx mori, were cloned by RT-PCR and designated CYP9A19–CYP9A22 by the P450 Nomenclature Committee. They each contain an open reading frame of(More)
