Abstract : The smaller tea tortrix, Adoxophyes honmai, has developed strong resistance to tebufenozide, a diacylhydrazine-type (DAH) insecticide. Here, we investigated its mechanism by identifying genes responsible for the tebufenozide resistance using various next generation sequencing techniques. First, double-digest restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (ddRAD-seq) identified two candidate loci. Then, synteny analyses using A. honmai draft genome sequences revealed that one locus contained the ecdysone receptor gene (EcR) and the other multiple CYP9A subfamily P450 genes. RNA-seq and direct sequencing of EcR cDNAs found a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), which was tightly linked to tebufenozide resistance and generated an amino acid substitution in the ligand-binding domain. The binding affinity to tebufenozide was about 4 times lower in in vitro translated EcR of the resistant strain than in the susceptible strain. RNA-seq analyses identified commonly up-regulated genes in resistant strains, including CYP9A and choline/carboxylesterase (CCE) genes. RT-qPCR analysis and bioassays showed that the expression levels of several CYP9A and CCE genes were moderately correlated with tebufenozide resistance. Collectively, these results suggest that the reduced binding affinity of EcR is the main factor and the enhanced detoxification activity by some CYP9As and CCEs plays a supplementary role in tebufenozide resistance in A. honmai.

Abstract : We have previously cloned and characterized BmJHE, a juvenile hormone (JH)-selective esterase (JHE) that is important for JH titer regulation in the silkworm Bombyx mori. Here, we sought to determine whether multiple genes might function as JH-specific esterase in this species. We searched for putative carboxyl/cholinesterase (CCE) genes having GQSAG, a highly conserved motif in JHE, by the use of silkworm genomic database. Five novel CCE genes (Bmcce-1-5) were identified and their cDNA sequences and intron-exon structures were determined. We investigated the developmental expression patterns of these CCE genes by real-time quantitative PCR analysis and found that their expression patterns varied among developmental stages and organs. Of the proteins produced by the five genes, only BmCCE-5 had the ability to degrade JH; however, this protein might not function as a JH-specific esterase in vivo as it had a high K(m) value for JH. On the other hand, BmCCE-5 degraded general esterase substrates efficiently. Since Bmcce-5 was strongly expressed in Malpighian tubules and the gut, it might function in digestion or xenobiotic metabolism. Our results suggest that of the CCEs containing a GQSAG motif only BmJHE can function as a JH-specific degradation enzyme in the silkworm.

Abstract : Juvenile hormone esterases (JHEs) function in juvenile hormone (JH) degradation. In the silkworm, Bombyx mori, we have characterized authentic JHE (Bmjhe) and five other carboxyl/cholinesterase (CCE) genes (Bmcce-1 to -5) with GQSAG, a motif sequence of JHE. But none of the genes appeared to function in vivo as a JHE, except for Bmjhe. Recently it was reported that the GQSAG motif might be dispensable, and that the Thr-316 residue has functional significance for JHE activity. On the basis of these findings, we identified two novel JHE candidates, Bmcce-6 and Bmcce-7, that lack GQSAG but possess Thr-316. In the CCE phylogenetic tree, BmCCE-6 was close to the lepidopteran JHE cluster, while BmCCE-7 constituted the same cluster as pheromone-degrading esterases. The developmental expression profiles were different among Bmjhe, Bmcce-6, and Bmcce-7. None of the proteins hydrolyzed JH in vitro. Our results suggest that only one CCE (BmJHE) functions as JHE in the silkworm.

Abstract : Juvenile hormone epoxide hydrolases (JHEHs) are a family of enzymes that hydrolyze juvenile hormones (JHs). They are important in terms of organ-specific regulation and irreversible degradation. In contrast to three JHEH genes (jheh) in Drosophila melanogaster and five jheh in Tribolium castaneum, only one jheh gene has been reported to date in lepidopteran insects. By searching a genome database of the silkworm, KAIKOBLAST, five JHEH-related genes (jheh-r), in addition to Bmjheh, were found. Developmental changes in mRNA expression were brought about revealing several unique patterns for each of jheh-r as to developmental stages and organ-specificity. Recombinant proteins of JHEH-r were expressed using a baculovirus system to evaluate their enzymatic activities. Three of the five JHEH-r recombinant proteins had JH hydrolytic activities. This is the first report on lepidopteran jheh-related genes and also provides the comprehensive analysis of multiple jheh-related genes in an insect species with respect to their functions in enzyme activities.

Abstract : Juvenile hormone esterases (JHEs) are required for the degradation of juvenile hormones (JHs) in insects. Here, we report the cloning and analysis of the jhe gene in the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum, a model insect of Coleoptera. The Tcjhe gene was strongly expressed at the final instar larva, as would be expected if it functioned to decrease the JH titer at this stage. A recombinant TcJHE protein efficiently degraded JH III, suggesting that the enzyme functions in vivo as a JH-specific degradation enzyme. This is the first report describing the developmental expression profile of the jhe gene whose enzymatic activity was shown in Coleoptera, and the new data reported here will aid elucidation of the mechanism of JH titer regulation in insects.

Abstract : Bombyx mori, the domesticated silkworm, is a major insect model for research, and the first lepidopteran for which draft genome sequences became available in 2004. Two independent data sets from whole-genome shotgun sequencing were merged and assembled together with newly obtained fosmid- and BAC-end sequences. The remarkably improved new assembly is presented here. The 8.5-fold sequence coverage of an estimated 432 Mb genome was assembled into scaffolds with an N50 size of approximately 3.7 Mb; the largest scaffold was 14.5 million base pairs. With help of a high-density SNP linkage map, we anchored 87% of the scaffold sequences to all 28 chromosomes. A particular feature was the high repetitive sequence content estimated to be 43.6% and that consisted mainly of transposable elements. We predicted 14,623 gene models based on a GLEAN-based algorithm, a more accurate prediction than the previous gene models for this species. Over three thousand silkworm genes have no homologs in other insect or vertebrate genomes. Some insights into gene evolution and into characteristic biological processes are presented here and in other papers in this issue. The massive silk production correlates with the existence of specific tRNA clusters, and of several sericin genes assembled in a cluster. The silkworm's adaptation to feeding on mulberry leaves, which contain toxic alkaloids, is likely linked to the presence of new-type sucrase genes, apparently acquired from bacteria. The silkworm genome also revealed the cascade of genes involved in the juvenile hormone biosynthesis pathway, and a large number of cuticular protein genes.

Abstract : The insect growth regulator (IGR) imidazole KK-42 induces hemolymph juvenile hormone esterase activity and precocious metamorphosis in Bombyx mori. As an initial step to understand the molecular action of KK-42, we isolated a full-length of juvenile hormone esterase cDNA from B. mori (BmJHE). The deduced amino acid sequence of BmJHE showed high identity to JHEs of Heliothis virescens (54%) and Choristoneura fumiferana (52%). Recombinant BmJHE protein expressed in the baculovirus expression system hydrolyzed 3H-JH III and JH analog, HEPTAT, indicating that BmJHE cDNA encodes functional JH esterase. Northern blot analysis showed that the BmJHE transcript was present predominantly in the fat body at the beginning of the last larval instar. During this instar, BmJHE transcript increased gradually until day 7, then decreased, and increased again on day 10 in the fat body. This temporary expression pattern was similar to that of JHE enzyme activity in hemolymph. In contrast, in the 4th instar, the BmJHE transcript was present in the fat body even though hemolymph JHE activity was very low. Western blot analysis using anti-BmJHE antiserum showed BmJHE protein was present in hemolymph during the 5th instar but not during the 4th instar. These results indicate that BmJHE protein is secreted into hemolymph at the metamorphic stage. Hemolymph JHE activity was high in precociously metamorphosed 4th instar larvae (treated KK-42) but low in normal 4th and extra-molted 6th instar larvae (fed 20E). KK-42-treated larvae showed high expression level of BmJHE transcript in the fat body, suggesting that KK-42 enhances BmJHE gene expression in the fat body.
