Identification of candidate chemosensory genes by antennal transcriptome analysis in an ectoparasitoid wasp
The present findings can provide the basis for the subsequent in‐depth exploration of chemosensory mechanisms in I. kuwanae and help clarify the role of odorant‐binding protein (OBP) in this wasp.
Field evaluation of sex pheromones and binding specificity of pheromone binding protein 4 in Tryporyza intacta (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)
It is demonstrated that the sex pheromone were most effective to T. intacta, and a new microsphere formulation lure can optimize the trapping effect and might be widely used in the sugarcane growing area.
Functional characteristics of a novel odorant binding protein in the legume pod borer, Maruca vitrata
Protein homology modeling and molecular docking analysis revealed that there are six amino acid sites of MvitOBP3 involved in the binding of the host-plant volatiles, which will further promote to understand the key role of odorant binding protein during host perception and oviposition of M. vitrata moths.
Identification and expression of candidate chemosensory receptors in the white-spotted flower chafer, Protaetia brevitarsis
The results laid a solid foundation for further functional elucidations of insect chemoreceptors, which could be used as the potential targets of pest management.
Odorant binding proteins involved in sex pheromone and host-plant recognition of the sugarcane borer Chilo infuscatellus (Lepidoptera: Crambidae).
Functional characterization of CinfPBPs and CinfGOBPs in C. infuscatellus could help to find new environmentally friendly alternative pest control strategies to conventional pest control using pesticides in the sugarcane field.
Transcriptome and gene expression analysis of three developmental stages of the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei
Genes linked to crucial physiological functions, such as digestion and detoxification, were determined to be tightly regulated between the reproductive and nonreproductive stages of CBB.


Odorant receptors and antennal lobe morphology offer a new approach to understanding olfaction in the Asian longhorned beetle
The Asian longhorned beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Motchulsky) is an exotic forest pest that has repeatedly invaded North America and Europe from Asia, and has the potential to kill millions of
The genome of the model beetle and pest Tribolium castaneum
Tribolium castaneum is a member of the most species-rich eukaryotic order, a powerful model organism for the study of generalized insect development, and an important pest of stored agricultural
A divergent gene family encoding candidate olfactory receptors of the moth Heliothis virescens
Analysis of isolated cDNA‐clones of a heliothine moth led to the discovery of a divergent gene family encoding putative seven‐transmembrane domain proteins, which strongly suggest that the newly discovered gene family indeed encodes olfactory receptors of moth.
Genome-wide analysis of the odorant-binding protein gene family in Drosophila melanogaster.
The Drosophila genome carries 51 potential OBP genes, a number comparable to that of its odorant-receptor genes, and an intriguing subfamily of 12 putative OBPs that share a unique C-terminal structure with three conserved cysteines and a conserved proline are reported.
Comparative genomic analysis of the odorant-binding protein family in 12 Drosophila genomes: purifying selection and birth-and-death evolution
It is observed that the OBP arrangement in clusters is maintained across the Drosophila species and that purifying selection governs the evolution of the family; nevertheless, OBP genes differ in their functional constraints levels.
A cDNA library from the antenna of Monochamus alternatus Hope and binding properties of odorant‐binding proteins
The results indicated that although MaltOBP3 and MaltOBp5 bound a distinctly different group of competitors, both had relatively high binding affinities for certain compounds, suggesting the roles of MaltOBB3 and maltOBP5 in host‐plant selection.
Chemosensory adaptations of the mountain fly Drosophila nigrosparsa (Insecta: Diptera) through genomics’ and structural biology’s lenses
It is hypothesised that the D. nigrosparsa genome experienced gene loss and various evolutionary pressures (diversifying positive selection, relaxation, and pseudogenisation), as well as structural modification in the geometry and electrostatic potential of the two ionotropic receptor binding sites.
An Odorant Receptor from the Southern House Mosquito Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus Sensitive to Oviposition Attractants
It is shown that CquiOR2, an antennae-specific OR, which shares high identity with putative orthologs in Anopheles gambiae (AgamOR2) and Aedes aegypti (AaegOR2), is highly sensitive to indole, an oviposition attractant for Cx.
Genome of the Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis), a globally significant invasive species, reveals key functional and evolutionary innovations at the beetle–plant interface
Amplification and functional divergence of genes associated with specialized feeding on plants, including genes originally obtained via horizontal gene transfer from fungi and bacteria, contributed to the addition, expansion, and enhancement of the metabolic repertoire of the Asian longhorned beetle and to a lesser degree, other phytophagous insects.
