Cover for Management objectives and integration of strategies for the Asian citrus psyllid.

Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) poses a major threat to citrus everywhere and is the prime focus of citrus pest management wherever it is present. The objective of psyllid management is to slow the establishment of the psyllid and disease by regulatory actions and also by regional 'eradication' efforts...

Cover for Advances in RNA suppression of the Asian citrus psyllid vector and bacteria (huanglongbing pathosystem).

The devastation to the US citrus industries from huanglongbing (HLB or citrus greening disease, caused by 'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus') is spread during feeding by the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) Diaphorina citri. Innovative echnologies, such as RNA suppression by RNAi, morpholino oligos, or...

Cover for Gene silencing in Archaeplastida algae.

This chapter examines the existence of DNA cytosine methyltransferases and core components of the RNAi machinery, as well as briefly discusses the known or inferred biological role(s) of these mechanisms in microalgae. However, an added level of complexity is the evolutionary divergence of algal...

Cover for Gene silencing in fungi: a diversity of pathways and functions.

Although RNAi has been described in many fungal species, most of the knowledge on sRNA and RNAi pathways in fungi is centred in two reference organisms: the ascomycete Neurospora crassa and the opportunistic human pathogen Mucor circinelloides, a basal fungus belonging to the subphylum...

Cover for Increasing nutritional value by RNA silencing.

Molecules in plants with dietary relevance can be grouped into four main sets: macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids (oils), fibre), micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, functional metabolites), antinutrients (substances such as phytate that limit the bioavailability of nutrients) and...

Cover for The lessons that <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Caenorhabditis elegans</i> has taught us about the mechanism of action of crystal proteins.

Caenorhabditis elegans is susceptible to three domain crystal proteins similar to those that intoxicate insects. Investigations of this organism have several important strengths, for example, ease of forward genetic screens, range of molecular genetic tools available and ease of carrying out RNAi...

Cover for RNA interference strategy for crop protection against insect pests.

RNA interference (RNAi) has significantly accelerated functional genomic research on insects. Since its discovery, numerous reports have reported efforts to apply RNAi approaches to insect species lacking characterized genomes. The technique also has substantial potential for use in the control of...
