    Minglin Lang
    Department of Biochemistry, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e33985. 2012
    ..We propose that AgMCO3 may oxidize toxic molecules in the blood meal leading to detoxification or to cross-linking of the molecules to the peritrophic matrix, thus targeting them for excretion...
  2. pmc Kinetic properties of alternatively spliced isoforms of laccase-2 from Tribolium castaneum and Anopheles gambiae
    Maureen J Gorman
    Department of Biochemistry, Kansas State University, 141 Chalmers, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
    Insect Biochem Mol Biol 42:193-202. 2012
    ..We conclude that laccase-2 splice isoforms are likely to oxidize the same substrates in vivo, and additional experiments will be required to discover any isoform-specific functions...

    ..sexta eggs are immune competent and likely protect the developing embryo from infection. We suggest that innate immune responses of extra-embryonic tissues may be a common mechanism for protecting early embryos...

    ..sexta. Based on the collective information from many studies, we propose a model in which TH is a major producer of the DOPA required for both cuticle tanning and immune-associated melanization...

    Maureen J Gorman
    Department of Biochemistry, Kansas State University, 141 Chalmers, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
    Insect Biochem Mol Biol 38:817-24. 2008
    ..This initial study of mosquito MCOs suggests that MCO2 may be required for egg development or eggshell tanning in addition to cuticle tanning, while MCO1 and MCO3 may be involved in metal metabolism or immunity...

    Department of Biochemistry, Kansas State University, 141 Chalmers, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
    Insect Biochem Mol Biol 40:267-73. 2010
