1Key biosynthetic gene subfamily recruited for pheromone production prior to the extensive radiation of Lepidoptera.

Liénard MA1, Strandh M, Hedenström E, Johansson T, Löfstedt C.

BMC Evol Biol. 2008 Oct 2;8:270. doi: 10.1186/1471-2148-8-270.

BACKGROUND: Moths have evolved highly successful mating systems, relying on species-specific mixtures of sex pheromone components for long-distance mate communication. Acyl-CoA desaturases are key enzymes in the biosynthesis of these compounds and to a large extent they account for the great diversity of pheromone structures in Lepidoptera. A novel desaturase gene subfamily that displays Delta11 catalytic activities has been highlighted to account for most of the unique pheromone signatures of the taxonomically advanced ditrysian species.
