- Molecular characterisation of a candidate gut sucrase in the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisumD R G Price
Department of Biology, University of York, P O Box 373, York YO10 5YW, UK
Insect Biochem Mol Biol 37:307-17. 2007..When expressed heterologously in Xenopus embryos, APS1 was membrane-bound and had sucrase activity. It is concluded that APS1 is a dominant, and possibly sole, protein mediating sucrase activity in the aphid gut...
- Functional expression and characterisation of a gut facilitative glucose transporter, NlHT1, from the phloem-feeding insect Nilaparvata lugens (rice brown planthopper)Daniel R G Price
School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, Durham DH1 3LE, UK
Insect Biochem Mol Biol 37:1138-48. 2007..NlHT1 is therefore likely to play an important role in glucose transport from the gut, and in carbon nutrition in vivo. This is the first report of a facilitative glucose transporter from a phloem-feeding insect pest...

- A venom metalloproteinase from the parasitic wasp Eulophus pennicornis is toxic towards its host, tomato moth (Lacanobia oleracae)D R G Price
University of Durham, UK
Insect Mol Biol 18:195-202. 2009..EpMP3 is expressed specifically in venom glands. These results suggest that EpMP3 is a functional component of Eulophus venom, which is able to manipulate host development...
