Protein map of gut in adult sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps Put. (Hem.: Scutelleridae): Two-dimensional electrophoresis technique

Abstract :

Gut is main part of digestive system in sunn pest. Digestion and absorption of food materials is the main role of gut and proteins are key molecules for such a function. In this study protein pattern of gut in new adult insects was investigated by Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis in which 100 protein spots could identified by CBB staining. Seventy one protein spots were tagged by molecular weight and isoelectric point. These proteins were divided into different functional category based to their physiological role. These proteins were belong to musculature proteins; carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism; energy metabolism; immune related proteins and nutrition proteins. This is the first report of 2-DE pattern of gut in sunn pest and with these ongoing studies, our aim will be to develop organ-related proteome map in sunn pest
