Whitefly genes responsive to insecticide Mospilan. a Number of Mospilan-responsive genes encoding phosphatidylethanolamine-binding protein (PEBP), cathepsin (CTS), cytochrome P450 (CYP), UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT), carboxylesterase (CCE), ABC transporter (ABC), glutathione S-transferase (GST), and aromatic peroxygenase (APO) in susceptible and resistant MED populations. Three or four biological replicates were performed for each control or Mospilan-treated sample. Detailed expression information of these genes is provided in Additional file 14. b Phylogenetic tree of PEBPs in B. tabaci and other arthropod species. c Two largest clusters of PEBPs on Scaffold1195, with 34 and 38 copies, respectively. Red PEBP genes located in the positive strand of the scaffold, blue PEBP genes located in the negative strand of the scaffold, white non-PEBP genes. Genes marked with asterisk are Mospilan-responsive
