Moreover, the expression of eight silkworm BTB protein genes, including BTBD6, ABTB2, BBTB3, BBK3, BBK4, BBK5, ZBTB5, and ZBTB7, displayed sexual dimorphism; the expression of BTBD6, ABTB2, BBK3, and BBK4 was male-specific, whereas that of BBTB3, BBK5, ZBTB5, and ZBTB7 was female-specific.
For example, the orthologs of BR-C (ZBTB6) or fruitless (ZBTB5), two well-studied insect BTB protein genes, were grouped into a clade on the phylogenetic tree (Figure 4).
In addition, we noted that ZBTB5 gene showed no sex-dependent expression on L5D3 but was specifically expressed in the female silkworm during the pupa-adult transition.
