Advances in research on the trehalose metabolism in insects
Author of the article:ZHU Jiang-Yan** HUANG Jian-Hua SHI Min CHEN Xue-Xin***
Author's Workplace:Ministry of Agriculture Key Laboratory of Agricultural Entomology and Institute of Insect Sciences, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310058, China
Key Words:trehalose, trehalase, trehalose phosphate synthase, trehalose metabolism in insects

 Trehalose is widely distributed in bacteria, fungi, animals and plants. Other than maintaining energy resources, trehalose also can provide some protection against adverse environmental conditions or metabolic dysfunction. Trehalose 6-phosphate synthase and trehalase are two important enzymes in trehalose bio-synthesis and lysis. Trehalose is transported from cells with the help of the trehalose transporter. Insulin and adipokinetic hormone regulate the carbohydrate metabolism directly, whereas juvenile hormone and ecdysone do so indirectly by coupling with insulin and adipokinetic hormone. Because the trehalose metabolism plays such a key role in insect development, its related signaling pathways could be new targets for pest control in the future.
