The cDNA and genomic structure of a putative lipophorin receptor from the silkworm, Bombyx mori (BmLpR), indicated the presence of four isoforms, designated LpR1, LpR2, LpR3, and LpR4. The deduced amino acid sequence of each isoform showed five functional domains that are homologous to vertebrate very low density lipoprotein receptor (VLDLR). All four(More)
Teratocytes derived from the embryonic membrane (serosa) of parasitoids are released into the host hemocoel when the parasitoid eggs hatch, where they perform several functions during the post-embryonic stage. A full-length cDNA encoding a putative carboxylesterase was isolated from the teratocytes of Dinocampus coccinellae and was designated as(More)
