Leucine-rich fibroin gene of the Japanese wild silkmoth, Rhodinia fugax (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae)
TLDR
The gene encodes a fibroin consisting mainly of orderly arranged repeats, each of which is divided into a polyalanine and a nonpolyalanine block, similar to the fibroins of Antheraea pernyi and A. yamamai.
