Abstract

Anagrus nilaparvatae is an important egg parasitoid wasp of pests such as the rice planthopper. Based on the powerful olfactory system of sensing chemical information in nature, A. nilaparvatae shows complicated life activities and behaviors, such as feeding, mating and hosting. We constructed a full-length transcriptome library and used this to identify the characteristics of soluble chemical communication proteins. We analyzed the sequence characteristics of soluble chemical communication protein genes and identified eight genes: AnilOBP2, AnilOBP9, AnilOBP23, AnilOBP56, AnilOBP83, AnilCSP5, AnilCSP6 and AnilNPC2. After sequence alignment and conserved domain prediction, the eight proteins encoded by the eight genes above were found to be consistent with the typical characteristics of odorant-binding proteins (OBPs), chemosensory proteins (CSPs) and Niemann-pick type C2 proteins (NPC2s) in other insects. Phylogenetic tree analysis showed that the eight genes share low homology with other species of Hymenoptera. This study provides the first data for A. nilaparvatae’s molecular characteristics of soluble chemical communication proteins, as well as an opportunity for understanding how A. nilaparvatae behaviors are mediated via soluble chemical communication proteins.
