Insect odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) are one group of olfactory-related proteins and are believed to play essential roles in the physiological activity of insects. In this study, we constructed a cDNA library from the antennae of Apolygus lucorum (Meyer-Dür). Twelve novel putative OBP genes were identified from the antennal cDNA library, and the expression profiles of the 12 OBPs in different tissues (antennae, heads, thoraxes, abdomens, legs and wings) were analyzed by real-time quantitative… CONTINUE READING
