- ... 20-Hydroxyecdysone (20E) is an important hormone that regulates the development of insects. Although previous evidence revealed that 20E promotes innate immunity in insects, the mechanism involved is still unclear. In this study, the HaBBP gene from Helicoverpa armigera is cloned, which contains BTB (broad-complex, tramtrack, and bric-a-brac), a BACK (BTB and carboxyl-terminus kelch repeats), and ...

- ... RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) associate with RNA in cells to form ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. The RBPs are involved in various aspects of RNA metabolism, but their roles in the juvenile hormone (JH) signaling pathway are not well known. An RNA-binding protein (Ha-RBP) was obtained from Helicoverpa armigera, a lepidopteran insect, which could be up-regulated by the juvenile hormone analogue me ...
