We isolated a cDNA of unknown function from a juvenile hormone III (JH III)-treated male midgut cDNA library prepared from the pine engraver beetle, Ips pini, and examined its genomic structure. The gene, tentatively named "Ipi10G08", encoded a 410 amino acid translation product that shared 26-37% identity with unannotated matches from several insects. Semi… CONTINUE READING
