How natural infection by Nosema ceranae causes honeybee colony collapse.
In recent years, honeybees (Apis mellifera) have been strangely disappearing from their hives, and strong colonies have suddenly become weak and died. The precise aetiology underlying theExpand

Experimental infection of Apis mellifera honeybees with Nosema ceranae (Microsporidia).
In this report, an experimental infection of Apis mellifera by Nosema ceranae, a newly reported microsporidian in this host is described. Nosema free honeybees were inoculated with 125,000 N. ceranaeExpand

Immune suppression in the honey bee (Apis mellifera) following infection by Nosema ceranae (Microsporidia).
Two microsporidia species have been shown to infect Apis mellifera, Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae. This work presents evidence that N. ceranae infection significantly suppresses the honey bee immuneExpand
