Intracellular symbiosis is considered to be a driving force in eukaryotic cell evolution. In insects, little is known about the molecular bases of the bacteria-bearing host cells (bacteriocytes), particularly in the initial steps of symbiosis, where the bacterial genome has not experienced severe gene deletions because of evolutionary constraints associated with intracellular and vertical transmission. Here, we have applied polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-subtracted cDNA and reverse Northern… CONTINUE READING
