Flour beetles of the genus Tribolium are all pests of stored products and cause severe economic losses every year. The American black flour beetle Tribolium audax is one of the important pest species of flour beetle, and it is also an important quarantine insect. Here we sequenced and characterized the complete mitochondrial genome of T. audax, which was(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a simple method for assessment of RNA integrity in laser capture microdissection (LCM) samples. METHODS The total RNA were isolated from the LCM samples and the sections before and after microdissection and examined by agarose gel electrophoresis. Real-time PCR was employed to assess the RNA from LCM samples, and the quantity of RNA(More)
The complete circular mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Coptotermes testaceus is 15 752bp in size, containing 37 typical genes and one non-coding AT-rich region. The AT content of the AT-rich region is 68.3%. All protein coding genes (PCGs) start with standard ATN initiation codons and end with complete termination codons TAA or TAG except for cox2,(More)
Flour beetles of the genus Tribolium are economically important as destructive cosmopolitan pests of stored flour, corn, peanuts, and other dried agricultural products. The confused flour beetle Tribolium confusum Jacquelin du Val (1868) is one of the most important pest species of flour beetle. Here we sequenced and characterized the complete mitochondrial(More)
