    A host beetle pheromone regulates development and behavior in the nematode Pristionchus pacificus

    Jessica K Cinkornpumin et al.
    A lipid-binding protein mediates both attraction and hypersensitivity to a beetle sex pheromone in a specific type of nematode-insect relationship known as necromeny.

    Cytoplasmic retention and degradation of a mitotic inducer enable plant infection by a pathogenic fungus

    Paola Bardetti et al.
    Degradation of a mitotic inducer coordinates the transition of two successive cell cycle arrests during the infective process of a plant pathogenic fungus.

    A novel lineage of candidate pheromone receptors for sex communication in moths

    Lucie Bastin-Héline et al.
    In moths, male receptors tuned to type I female pheromones may not have a monophyletic origin.

    Expansion of the fatty acyl reductase gene family shaped pheromone communication in Hymenoptera

    Michal Tupec et al.
    A fatty acyl reductase gene family expansion in the Hymenoptera crown group led to recruitment of novel pheromone-biosynthetic enzymes and is linked to evolution of pheromone marking behavior.

    Genetic architecture of natural variation in cuticular hydrocarbon composition in Drosophila melanogaster

    Lauren M Dembeck et al.
    Genome wide association analyses in a wild-derived Drosophila melanogaster population uncover extensive variation in cuticular hydrocarbon composition, which may present a target for natural selection and adaptive evolution.

    The cuticular hydrocarbon profiles of honey bee workers develop via a socially-modulated innate process

    Cassondra L Vernier et al.
    Chemical nestmate recognition in honey bee colonies depends on an innate, socially modulated developmental process.

    A moth odorant receptor highly expressed in the ovipositor is involved in detecting host-plant volatiles

    Rui-Ting Li et al.
    A moth can detect plant volatiles using an odorant receptor expressing in its ovipositor, and this odorant receptor has a much higher expression level in the ovipositor than antennae.

    Sex-specific triacylglycerides are widely conserved in Drosophila and mediate mating behavior

    Jacqueline SR Chin et al.
    Triacylglycerides found in the males of 11 species of Drosophila form a largely overlooked, novel, sex-specific class of pheromones that act to suppress courtship behaviour.

    Evolved differences in larval social behavior mediated by novel pheromones

    Joshua D Mast et al.
    A novel pheromone/receptor neuron pair mediates attraction between Drosophila larvae, and evolved differences in pheromone signaling underlie changes in social behavior between drosophilid species.
