Gene context of Locusta migratoria

  • We constructed several hybrid receptors composed of Locusta migratoria LpR and human LDLR regions to identify the domains implicated in LpR-mediated ligand recycling [26].
  • We here report the sequence of an RXR/USP from the hemimetabolous orthopteran, Locusta migratoria [27].
  • Immunocytochemical localization of human growth hormone- and prolactin-like antigenic determinants in the insects, Locusta migratoria and Sarcophaga bullata [28].
  • Four regions of the mvg gene resemble the upstream conserved regions of the two vitellogenin-encoding genes of the locust, Locusta migratoria [29].
