The mitochondrial genomes of palaeopteran insects and insights into the early insect relationships
TLDR
A next-generation sequencing approach was used to reconstruct new mitochondrial genomes from 18 species of basal insects, including six representatives of Ephemeroptera and 11 of Odonata, plus one species belonging to Zygentoma, which generally recovered Zygentomas as a monophyletic group, which formed a sister group to Pterygota.
Genomic sequencing and analysis of Clostera anachoreta granulovirus
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis, based on the 29 core baculovirus genes, indicates that ClanGV is closely related to PhopGV, AdorGV, CpGV, CrleGV, PiraGV and ChocGV, and this agrees with the results of homology analysis and gene parity plot analysis.
Complete genome sequence of Agrotis segetum granulovirus Shanghai strain
The complete nucleotide sequence of Agrotis segetum granulovirus Shanghai strain (AgseGV-L1) was determined and compared with that of AgseGV Xinjiang strain (AgseGV-XJ). The circular genome of
Consumption of Bt rice pollen containing Cry1C or Cry2A does not pose a risk to Propylea japonica (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The data indicate that the growing of Cry1C- or Cry2A-transgenic rice should pose a negligible risk to P. japonica and the effect observed was likely attributable to unknown differences in the nutritional composition of Bt rice pollen.
Consumption of Bt Maize Pollen Containing Cry1Ie Does Not Negatively Affect Propylea japonica (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Results indicated that P. japonica are not affected by the consumption of Cry1Ie-expressing maize pollen and are not sensitive to the Cry1ie protein, suggesting that the growing of Bt maize expressing Cry1 Ie protein will pose a negligible risk to P. Japonica.
Identification of Lipases Involved in PBAN Stimulated Pheromone Production in Bombyx mori Using the DGE and RNAi Approaches
TLDR
Four lipases directly involved in PBAN-stimulated sex pheromone biosynthesis are identified, which improve the understanding of the lipases involved in releasing bombykol precursors from triacylglycerols (TAGs) within the cytoplasmic LDs.
Reconstruction of mitogenomes by NGS and phylogenetic implications for leaf beetles
TLDR
Together with published mitogenome sequences, a higher level phylogeny of Chrysomelidae was reconstructed under maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference with different models and various data treatments, revealing support for a basal position of Bruchinae within Chrysomelsidae.
