In the midgut, the two trehalase genes were expressed in different locations.
The phylogenetic analysis of the trehalases amino acids was conducted using the MEGA3. 1 program to generate a phylogenetic tree (1, the soluble trehalase gene; 2, the membrane-bound trehalase gene) and the robustness of each cluster was verified in 1000 replicates.
Each point represents the mean ± SEM from three independent experiments with all effective individuals for target gene detection and with three effective individuals for the other trehalase gene detection.
The first insect trehalase gene, a soluble trehalase gene, was reported in 1992
(C) The transcription levels of target genes and the other trehalase gene were detected.
These further confirmed that expressions of the genes in the chitin biosynthesis pathway are affected by changes in expressions of trehalase genes.
Effects of trehalose injection on expressions of key genes in the chitin biosynthesis pathway In addition to the down-regulation of trehalase expression, an examination of an indirect up-regulation of trehalases by the injection of trehalose was conducted.
The sequences of the two trehalase cDNAs were compared with other trehalase sequences deposited in the GenBank using the

Here, we report the different functions of the two trehalase genes from a lepidopteran insect,
