Microarray analysis of gene expression profiles in wing discs of Bombyx mori during pupal ecdysis.

Abstract

Wing discs of holometabolous insects undergo dramatic morphological changes during metamorphosis, a process that is controlled by the actions of hundreds of gene products. Using cDNA microarrays constructed from 5086 ESTs, we monitored the gene expression profiles in wing discs of Bombyx mori at 13 time points during pupal ecdysis (day-4 fifth instar larvae… (More)
