Abstract:[Objectives]  To investigate the olfactory molecular mechanism of Chouioia cunea Yang (Hymenoptera:Eulophidae). C. cunea is a significant parasitic natural enemy of the fall webworm Hyphantria cunea (Drury). We here provide the first description of the full-length cDNA of the Or83b orthologous gene of C. cune, named CcOr1. [Methods]  We identified the full-length of CcOr1 and analyzed its gene sequence and likely evolution. [Results]  Sequencing showed that CcOr1 is 1 482 bp in length, encoding 475 amino acid residues. The secondary structure of CcOr1 is similar to the G protein-coupled receptors of vertebrates with seven transmembrane regions[Conclusion]  The CcOr1 gene is highly conserved relative to other insects and appears to be primarily negatively selected. As a parasitic wasp with a wide range of hosts, C. cunea has lower synonymous substitutions and higher codon usage bias compared with host-specific wasps.
