The hemolymph juvenile hormone binding protein (hJHBP) gene of Manduca sexta is a key target of its specific ligand, juvenile hormone (JH). While the cDNA for hJHBP has been partially characterized, little is known about the hJHBP gene structure or its promoter(s) and enhancers(s). Previous studies have demonstrated that JH stimulates a rapid accumulation of hJHBP mRNA in the fat body. To better understand the underlying molecular events affecting regulation, we sequenced the M. sexta hJHBP… CONTINUE READING
