Abstract

Wolbachia are maternally inherited, intracellular bacteria at the forefront of vector control efforts to curb arbovirus transmission. In international field trials, the cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) drive system of wMel Wolbachia is deployed to replace target vector populations, whereby a...

Abstract

Small molecule modulators of the Endoplasmic Reticulum glycoprotein folding quality control (ERQC) machinery have broad-spectrum antiviral activity against a number of enveloped viruses and have the potential to rescue secretion of misfolded but active glycoproteins in rare diseases. In vivo assays...

Abstract

Being overweight increases the risk of many metabolic disorders, but how it affects lifespan is not completely clear. Not all obese people become ill, and the exact mechanism that turns excessive fat storage into a health-threatening state remains unknown. Drosophila melanogaster has served as an...

CAB ReviewFull Text

In the course of human history, the primary use of animals for more than 10 000 years has been agricultural - food, fibre, locomotion and power. And for most of that history, the well-being of the animals being used was assured by necessity. If one did not practice good husbandry, the animals did...

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

Genetics has long played a role in the history of insect pest management, and changes in the genetic methods used reflect changes that have occurred in the field itself over time. Beginning from simple collections of mutations and the development of chromosome linkage maps, many of the early...

AbstractFull Text

Field experiments were carried out to ascertain the bioefficacy of new chemistry of molecule against sucking pest complex in Bt cotton at Agricultural Research Station, Dharwad farm during 2014-15 and 2015-16, season under rain fed situation. The bio efficacy of Flonicamide 50% WG was evaluated in...
