A review is presented of our ongoing research program on the regulation of metamorphosis-associated proteins in Trichoplusia ni. Toward the identification of mechanisms by which juvenile hormone (JH) regulates expression of metamorphosis-associated proteins, we have identified a protein that is induced by JH (juvenile hormone esterase) and a related esterase that is not JH-inducible. We have also identified three hexamerins that are suppressible by JH, and one hexamerin that is not JH… CONTINUE READING
