The Sibling Chaperones from the Colorado potato beetle!

The Sibling Chaperones from the Colorado potato beetle!

Our recent study indicated presence of a new group of chaperones, lectin-type chaperones with calcium affinity, a calreticulin and a calnexin in Colorado potato beetle in relation to diapause. The paper is now online in Archives of Insect Biochemistry and Physiology and hopefully be a new contribution into the understanding of insect diapause as molecular chaperones are crucial for the correct folding of newly synthesized polypeptides, in particular, under stress conditions including hibernation.  Congratulations to all team and especially Cansu, the first author of the paper!
