- ... Comparative studies of leafhopper mitochondrial genomes suggest that genome rearrangements are very rare in these insects but that nucleotide sequences are informative of phylogenetic relationships at various levels of divergence. A recent study reported that tRNA cluster trnW-trnC-trnY is rearranged to trnC-trnW-trnY in the Aster Leafhopper, Macrosteles quadrilineatus, an economically important N ...

- ... Little is known about the mechanisms underlying the relationship between changes in salivary proteins and the adaptation of insects to different host-plants. To address this knowledge gap, the transcriptional profiles of salivary glands were compared among three populations of the rare cicada Subpsaltria yangi, in which two populations specialize on Zizyphus jujuba var. spinosa, but the population ...
