[…] 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, an […]


The whole genome sequence of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), reveals insights into the biology and adaptive evolution of a highly invasive pest species

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5034548
PMID: 27659211
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-016-1049-2

[…] otifs that are characteristic for several families of cuticle proteins [], 202 genes coding for putative cuticle proteins were identified (Additional file : Table S20). These genes were analyzed with CutProtFam-Pred, a cuticular protein family prediction tool [], and 195 genes could be assigned to one of eight families (CPR, CPAP1, CPAP3, CPF, CPCFC, CPLCA, CPLCG, and TWDL) (Additional file : Tabl […]


Tribolium castaneum RR 1 Cuticular Protein TcCPR4 Is Required for Formation of Pore Canals in Rigid Cuticle

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 4335487
PMID: 25664770
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004963

[…] teins (NP_001139387), denoted as TcCPR4 (the numbering of CPs in T. castaneum does not reflect orthology with CPs in other species assigned the same number), which is also a member of the CPR family (CutProtFam-Pred: Both proteins exhibited the same six matched peptides that are highlighted in gray in . Peptide coverage for the mature TcCPR4 pro […]


The First Myriapod Genome Sequence Reveals Conservative Arthropod Gene Content and Genome Organisation in the Centipede Strigamia maritima

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 4244043
PMID: 25423365
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1002005

[…] 2, with the former primarily associated with flexible cuticle, the latter with rigid cuticle. Interestingly, while chelicerates studied to date have no members of the RR-1 subfamily (as classified at CutProtFam-Pred,, seven of the S. maritima CPR proteins clearly belong to this class. This would be consistent with the origin of the RR1-coding genes […]
