... to a longer ecdysis cycle and smaller individuals. This phenotype was mirrored in shrimps injected with novel miR-26 agomirs, but the opposite phenotype occurred in shrimps injected with novel miR-26 antagomirs (i.e. the ecdysis cycle was shortened and body length was increased). After injection of 20...

...Y. Zilberstein; J. Ewer; A. Ayali SUMMARY In insects, continuous growth requires the periodic replacement of the exoskeleton during the moult. A moulting insect displays a stereotypical set of behaviours that culminate in the shedding of the old cuticle at ecdysis. Moulting is an intricate process...

Here we show that two evolutionarily conserved transcription factor genes, the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) gene dimmed ( dimm )and the basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) gene cryptocephal ( crc...
