Nucleotide sequence of an adult-specific cuticular protein gene from the beetle Tenebrio molitor: effects of 20-hydroxyecdysone on mRNA accumulation.

Abstract

The accumulation of transcripts from two adult-specific cuticular genes (ACP-20 and ACP-22) is shown to be modified after addition of exogenous 20-hydroxyecdysone. In the continuous presence of high levels of the hormone, the expression of ACP-20 gene is significantly weaker than that of untreated controls, while ACP-22 expression is 2.5-fold increased… (More)
