Host plants have an effect on the susceptibility of lepidopteran insects to nucleopolyhedrovirus (NPV), but the role of the protein in peritrophic membrane (PM) of larvae has not been investigated. We determined a key PM gene (SeIIM8 gene) in Spodoptera exigua (Hübner), which plays a role in protecting against NPV infection. Then we quantified the activity of chitin synthase (SeCHS), the content of insect intestinal mucin (SeIIM) and the expression of their genes in S....
