Molecular characterization of ovary trehalase of the silkworm, Bombyx mori and its transcriptional activation by diapause hormone.

Abstract

We have isolated a cDNA encoding ovary trehalase of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. Sequence analyses revealed that the isolated cDNA contains 3143 nucleotides and comprises 579 amino acids, including a cleavable signal sequence and five potential N-glycosylation sites. Northern blot analysis showed a 3.0 kb transcript in developing ovaries carrying membrane… (More)
