B4INREMOTE-aHR0cHM6Ly80LmJwLmJsb2dzcG90LmNvbS8tRFlWRkk0aU90cG8vV0NySTlieEpJeEkvQUFBQUFBQURldEUvSnZvOVY0ZThBemtfUHhUdU15OU0zNGRqSTllZGszc1NnQ0xjQi9zMzIwLzEzMDU5XzIwMTZfMTA4OF9GaWcxX0hUTUwuZ2lm

Amplification and functional divergence of genes associated with specialized feeding on plants, including genes originally obtained via horizontal gene transfer from fungi and bacteria, contributed to the addition, expansion, and enhancement of the metabolic repertoire of the Asian longhorned beetle, certain other phytophagous beetles, and to a lesser degree, other phytophagous insects. Our results thus begin to establish a genomic basis for the evolutionary success of beetles on plants.
