Expressed sequenced tags from Lygus lineolaris (Hemiptera: Miridae), the tarnished plant bug

M. L. Allen, Expressed sequenced tags from Lygus lineolaris (Hemiptera: Miridae), the tarnished plant bug, vol. 6, pp. 206-213, 2007.

Expressed sequenced tags (ESTs) were prepared to establish a baseline for molecular genetic studies of the tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois). The largest class of identifiable ESTs (15.2%) was from genes involved in cellular metabolic functions, including physiological processes. Twenty-seven ESTs (9.8%) were from genes associated with transcription and translation, including ribosomal genes. One hundred and forty-two of the 276 unique ESTs were from genes not previously identified from any organism.
