TitleExploration and characterization of genes involved in the synthesis of diterpene defense secretion in nasute termite soldiers
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract Nasutitermes takasagoensis soldiers defend their colonies using characteristic diterpenes. Diterpenes are thought to be synthesized in the frontal gland cells surrounding the gland reservoir. To identify the genes involved in diterpene synthesis, a cDNA library was prepared from the frontal gland ce .. [more]
