Abstract

Sudden death was observed in chimpanzees and gorillas in Côte d'Ivoire (Taï National Park) and Cameroon (Dja Reserve) in 2001 and 2004 and the causative agent was identified as a before unknown Bacillus anthracis-like bacterium designated Bacillus cereus biovar anthracis (Bcbva) (1, 2). Bcbva...

Abstract

The Calliphoridae include some of the most economically significant myiasis-causing flies in the world - blowflies and screwworm flies - with many being notorious for their parasitism of livestock. However, despite more than 50 years of research, key taxonomic relationships within the family remain ...

Abstract

Male Seminal Fluid Proteins (SFPs) transferred during copulation modulate female reproductive physiology and behavior, impacting sperm storage/use, ovulation, oviposition, and remating receptivity. These capabilities make them ideal targets for developing novel methods of insect disease vector...

Abstract

Cardiac glycosides are a prime example of highly toxic plant secondary compounds, which block an essential transmembrane carrier in animals, the Na,K-ATPase. Nevertheless, over 100 insect species from diverse orders are known to feed on plants containing these compounds and in many cases these...

Abstract

A new flavivirus, Ecuador Paraiso Escondido virus (EPEV), named after the village where it was discovered, was isolated from sand flies (Psathyromyia abonnenci, formerly Lutzomyia abonnenci) that are unique to the New World. This represents the first sand fly-borne flavivirus identified in the New...

Abstract

Four Vesiculovirus species causing vesicular stomatitis in the Americas, together with two closely related insect isolates, can be phyletically classified into two major groups: New Jersey (NJ) and Indiana (IN). Here, Bayesian coalescent analyses were conducted to the time-stamped entire coding...

Abstract

Classic taxonomy of animal mainly depends on genetic, morphology, fossil and distribution studies, so the study aims at developing a method which can rapidly identify to what species unknown animals are closely related by comparison of genomic sequences. With more complete sequenced animal genomes...

Abstract

In Diptera (Insecta), alternatively spliced male-specific and female-specific products of the doublesex (dsx) gene play a key role in regulating development of the adult genital structures from the genital disc. Analysis of the pattern of nucleotide substitution of different domains of the dsx gene ...

Abstract

Genomic tools such as the availability of the Drosophila genome sequence, the relative ease of stable transformation, and DNA microarrays have made the fruit fly a powerful model in insecticide toxicology research. We have used transgenic promoter-GFP constructs to document the detailed pattern of...

Abstract

Chromosome polymorphism was studied in populations of three Palaearctic species of chironomids of the genus Sergentia Kieffer (Diptera, Chironomidae) from the Irkutsk reservoir: S. baueri Wülker et al., 1999, S. prima Proviz et al., 1997, and S. electa Proviz et al., 1999. It was found that in S....
