. Pink Bollworm Resistance to Bt Toxin Cry1Ac Associated with an Insertion in Cadherin Exon 20. Toxins (Basel). 2019;11: pubmed publisher
..These results imply that the r16 allele mediates Cry1Ac resistance in pink bollworm by interfering with the localization of cadherin. ..

..This represents the first reporter system that can study polyadenylation efficiency of a single pA site or element and regulation of two APA sites at both the mRNA and protein levels. ..
Chen S, Li X. Transposable elements are enriched within or in close proximity to xenobiotic-metabolizing cytochrome P450 genes. BMC Evol Biol. 2007;7:46 pubmed
..These results indicate that TEs are selectively retained within or in close proximity to xenobiotic-metabolizing P450 genes. ..
Li X, Bai S, Cass B. Accord insertion in the 5' flanking region of CYP6G1 confers nicotine resistance in Drosophila melanogaster. Gene. 2012;502:1-8 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that naturally-occurring allelochemicals such as nicotine are the initial driving force for the worldwide prevalence of the Accord insertion allele of CYP6G1 in D. melanogaster natural populations. ..

. Expressional divergence of insect GOX genes: From specialist to generalist glucose oxidase. J Insect Physiol. 2017;100:21-27 pubmed publisher
..These data indicate that the greater GOX activity in generalist herbivores is not achieved by greater transcription rate, but by greater transcript stability, greater translation rate, better enzyme stability and/or their combination. ..
