Pardosa pseudoannulata, one of the dominant predators in the paddy ecosystem, is a potential resource in the biological control of rice pests. Olfaction is crucial for insect behaviors such as feeding, mating and foraging, and odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) play a vital role in smell sensing, so we suppose that OBPs may be also important in spider behaviors. In this study, we identified two putative OBP genes and obtained their complete cDNA sequences. PpseOBP1 is 842 bp long and encodes a 188… CONTINUE READING
