A comprehensive omics analysis and functional survey of cuticular proteins in the brown planthopper

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A
PMCID: 5960286
PMID: 29712872
DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1716951115

[…] Insect CP amino acids and gene sequences were obtained from NCBI (, EnsemblMetazoa (, CutProtFam ( (), and CuticleDB ( (). The common motifs of CPs from D. melanogaster, Bombyx mori, A. gambiae, Tribolium castaneum, Apis mellifera, and Locusta migratoria were used as […]


Identification and expression of cuticular protein genes based on Locusta migratoria transcriptome

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5377371
PMID: 28368027
DOI: 10.1038/srep45462

[…] s, containing RR1, RR2 and RR3 were used; classification into the appropriate subfamily was confirmed using a profile hidden Markov model that discriminates between the two subtypes, available at the cuticleDB website. For Tweedle genes, the Tweedle motif was used to identify homologs. For the CPAP family, the Tribolium castaneum CPAP1 and CPAP3 sequences from NCBI were used to identify CPAP famil […]


Ecdysteroid Dependent Expression of the Tweedle and Peroxidase Genes during Adult Cuticle Formation in the Honey Bee, Apis mellifera

PLoS One
PMCID: 3105072
PMID: 21655217
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0020513

[…] alignment with Tweedle proteins from other species of insects shown in . This honey bee gene was then named AmelTwdl1 (Amel was used to conserve the nomenclature given to the A. mellifera CPs in the CuticleDB; Twdl is the abbreviation given to tweedle genes first described in Drosophila), and the GB19234 sequence prediction was validated as a cuticle protein gene. The AmelTwdl1 protein shares 58% […]
