Molecular characterization of the lipophorin receptor in the crustacean ectoparasite Lepeophtheirus salmonis
Results revealed that storage of neutral lipids was found in vitellogenic oocytes and ovaries of adult females, and in the yolk of larvae, and RNA interference was conducted to demonstrate the function of LsLpR in reproduction and lipid metabolism in L. salmonis.
Dynamics of fatty acid regulatory genes during ovarian development in Penaeus monodon
The dynamics of fatty acid regulatory pathways during crustacean ovarian development are described and potential target genes for alternatives to eyestalk ablation in the future are provided.
Metabolism and Nutritive Role of Cholesterol in the Growth, Gonadal Development, and Reproduction of Crustaceans
Considering the relatively high cost of cholesterol, a better understanding of factors influencing dietary cholesterol requirements in crustaceans and role this plays in lipid metabolism may facilitate more cost-effective feed formulations.
Molecular approaches underlying the oogenic cycle of the scleractinian coral, Acropora tenuis
Vasa has physiological and molecular roles throughout the oogenic cycle, as it determines gonadal germline cells and ensures normal oocyte development, whereas the roles of VG and LDLR are limited to the vitellogenic stages because they act in coordination with lipoprotein transport, viteLLogenin synthesis, and yolk incorporation into oocytes.
The Essential Role of Vitellogenin Receptor in Ovary Development and Vitellogenin Uptake in Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel)
Developmental expression patterns showed that the signal of BdVgR was detectable in very beginning of adult stage, and positively correlated with the growth rate of ovaries and the expression levels of its ligands, andPhylogenic analysis suggested that BdvGR was evolutionary conserved with other Dipteran VgRs.


Structural Similarity and Expression Differences of Two Pj-Vg Genes from the Pandalus Shrimp Pandalopsis japonica
A strong positive correlation was found between ovarian and hepatopancreatic Pj-Vg2 transcripts, suggesting that its dual expression is regulated by similar physiological conditions.
Structural and RNAi characterization of the German cockroach lipophorin receptor, and the evolutionary relationships of lipoprotein receptors
RNAi experiments indicate that BgLpR is a functional lipophorin receptor, and phylogenetical analyses show that LpRs and the group formed by vertebrate LDLR + LPR8 + VgR + VLDLR, diverged from a common ancestor and diversified in parallel.
Molecular cloning, characterization, expression pattern and cellular distribution of an ovarian lipophorin receptor in the cockroach, Leucophaea maderae
A cDNA that encodes a lipophorin receptor (LpR) with a predicted structure similar to that of the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene superfamily was cloned from ovaries of the cockroach,
From Hepatopancreas to Ovary: Molecular Characterization of a Shrimp Vitellogenin Receptor Involved in the Processing of Vitellogenin1
This study represents the first report of the functional analysis of a putative VgR in a crustacean, and the level of this protein was high when extraovarian production of Vg reached peak levels.
