Insect chemoreception involves many families of genes, including odourant/pheromone binding proteins (), chemosensory proteins (), odourant receptors (), ionotropic receptors (), and sensory neuron membrane proteins (), which play irreplaceable roles in mediating insect behaviors such as host location, foraging, mating, oviposition, and avoidance of danger. However, little is known about the molecular mechanism of olfactory reception in , which is a major pest of sugarcane. A set of 72 candidate chemosensory genes, including 31 , 15 , 11 , 13 , and two , were identified in four transcriptomes from different tissues and genders of . Read More
