Effects of Pyriproxyfen on Female Reproduction in the Common Cutworm, Spodoptera litura (F.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that the topical application of pyriproxyfen on newly emerged females can efficiently reduce reproduction in S. litura and may represent an alternative to the use of insecticides for controlling the agricultural pest.
Nitric oxide/cGMP signaling in the corpora allata of female grasshoppers.
Sequencing and validation of housekeeping genes for quantitative real-time PCR during the gonadotrophic cycle of Diploptera punctata
TLDR
Arm and EF1a form the most stably expressed combination of two reference genes out of the eight candidates that were tested in the corpora allata, and the results stress the necessity for validation of reference genes in q-RT-PCR studies in cockroaches.

Modulation of juvenile hormone synthesis by an analogue in the cockroach
TLDR
In Diploptera punctata, topical application of a JH analogue (JHA) depresses the synthesis of JH at high doses but stimulates synthesis at low doses and that the analogue can support oocytes growth and maturation in the absence of the CA and that application to intact animals stimulates oocyte growth rates.
The role of allatostatins in juvenile hormone synthesis in insects and crustaceans.
TLDR
Three types of allatostatins in insects have been isolated: FGLamides, W(X)(6)Wamide, and PISCFs; however, although these types occur in all groups of insects studied, they act as inhibitors of juvenile hormone production in only some groups.
