    Frank W Avila
    Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853, USA
    Annu Rev Entomol 56:21-40. 2011
    ..Here, we review recent identification of insect SFPs and discuss the multiple roles these proteins play in the postmating processes of female insects...

    Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:4562-7. 2012
    ..These findings identify a distinct role for TA and OA in reproduction, regulating the release of sperm from storage, and suggest a mechanism by which Drosophila females actively regulate the release of stored sperm...

    Adv Genet 68:23-56. 2009
    ..We conclude with a discussion of the ways in which Sfps can both shape and be shaped by (in an evolutionary sense) the molecular social interactions in which they are involved...
