TitleOlfaction in the ovipositor of Manduca sexta
Study TypeOther
Abstract We isolated and sequenced RNA from ovipositors of mated and virgin female Manduca sexta. The ovipositors were cut from the animal at the 8th segment. We checked the transcriptomes for differential expression of chemosensory receptor genes between mated and virgin females.
