- Physiological and cellular responses caused by RNAi- mediated suppression of Snf7 orthologue in western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera) larvaeParthasarathy Ramaseshadri
Department of Biotechnology, Monsanto Company, Chesterfield, Missouri, USA
PLoS ONE 8:e54270. 2013..This study also illustrates that Snf7 is an essential gene in WCR and its functions are consistent with biological functions described for other eukaryotes...
- Conservation, loss, and redeployment of Wnt ligands in protostomes: implications for understanding the evolution of segment formationRalf Janssen
Department of Earth Sciences, Palaeobiology, Villavägen 16, SE 75236 Uppsala, Sweden
BMC Evol Biol 10:374. 2010..We also characterised Wnt gene expression in the latter three species, and further investigated expression of these genes in the beetle Tribolium castaneum...
