Pictured is a migratory locust (Locusta migratoria), which is in the molting process. Chitin synthase and chitinase play crucial roles in chitin biosynthesis and degradation during insect molting. Yang et al. describe a mechanism by which two miRNAs regulate chitin metabolism related to the molting process in locusts. Molting process is controlled precisely by a balancing modulation cooperation of miR-71 and miR-263 in chitin biosynthesis and degradation. See Yang et al.
