Identification of Lipases Involved in PBAN Stimulated Pheromone Production in Bombyx mori Using the DGE and RNAi Approaches
Background Pheromone biosynthesis activating neuropeptide (PBAN) is a neurohormone that regulates sex pheromone synthesis in female moths. Bombyx mori is a model organism that has been used toExpand

Identification of a diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 gene involved in pheromone biosynthesis activating neuropeptide stimulated pheromone production in Bombyx mori.
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) catalyzes the final step in triacylglycerol biosynthesis. In the present study, a DGAT2 gene from Bombyx mori was characterized. Temporal expression profilesExpand

Circadian Reproductive Rhythms, Pair-Bonding, and Evidence for Sex-Specific Pheromones in Nadezhdiella cantori (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
Mating and oviposition rhythms and evidence for sex-specific pheromones of the gray-black citrus longicorn beetle Nadezhdiella cantori were investigated. The reproductive and flight activities ofExpand

Consumption of Bt rice pollen containing Cry1C or Cry2A does not pose a risk to Propylea japonica (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
As a pollen feeder, Propylea japonica would be directly exposed to Cry proteins in Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-transgenic rice fields. The effect of Cry1C- or Cry2A-containing transgenic rice pollenExpand

Use of a Pollen-Based Diet to Expose the Ladybird Beetle Propylea japonica to Insecticidal Proteins
A rape seed pollen-based diet was developed and found to be suitable for use in a dietary exposure assay for Propylea japonica. Using the diet, we established and validated a dietary exposure assayExpand

Application of RNA-seq for mitogenome reconstruction, and reconsideration of long-branch artifacts in Hemiptera phylogeny
Hemiptera make up the largest nonholometabolan insect assemblage. Despite previous efforts to elucidate phylogeny within this group, relationships among the major sub-lineages remain uncertain. InExpand
