cDNA cloning and characterization of two trehalases from Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera; Noctuidade)

Q. Zou, Wei, P., Xu, Q., Zheng, H. Z., Tang, B., and Wang, S. G., cDNA cloning and characterization of two trehalases from Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera; Noctuidade), vol. 12, pp. 901-915, 2013.

The oriental leafworm moth, Spodoptera litura, is a major agricultural pest in southeast Asia and nearby Pacific regions. Two distinct trehalases have been identified in insects: soluble trehalase (Treh1) and membrane-bound trehalase (Treh2), although there is currently no information on these genes in S. litura. To characterize the distribution and function of treh, cDNAs of Treh proteins were cloned from S. litura.
