Protein

Insecticyanin-A

Gene

INSA

Organism
Manduca sexta (Tobacco hawkmoth) (Tobacco hornworm)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 3 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

This protein binds a chromophore: biliverdin IX, isomer gamma. Mixed with lipoprotein-bound carotenes, this blue protein provides hornworms with their green cryptic coloration which serves a camouflage.
