Exposure of larvae of three non-target species to GM maize MON810 expresses a Cry1Ab insecticidal protein, derived from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), toxic to lepidopteran target pests such as Ostrinia nubilalis is analysed. Expand
Scientific Opinion addressing the state of the science on risk assessment of plant protection products for in‐soil organisms
It is proposed that in‐soil environmental risk assessments are made at in‐ and off‐field scale considering field boundary levels, and a new testing strategy which takes into account the relevant exposure routes for in‐ soil organisms and the potential direct and indirect effects is proposed. Expand
Hemocytes of Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Olivier) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and their response to Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Bacillus thuringiensis.
RPW hemocytes, the main immunocompetent cells in the insect, are described for the first time and the hemocyte response of RPW larvae to sub-lethal doses of commercial products containing Bt was examined. Expand
Study of the aminopeptidase N gene family in the lepidopterans Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner) and Bombyx mori (L.): sequences, mapping and expression.
The sequence homology and gene organization of apns suggest a single origin from an ancestral lepidopteran apn gene, which is similar to that of the puromycin-sensitive aminopeptidase family. Expand
The gut microbiota of larvae of Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Oliver (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
The red palm weevil gut microbiota is composed mainly of facultative and obligate anaerobic bacteria with a fermentative metabolism, which might have a key role in the insect nutrition, and other functions that need to be investigated. Expand
Guidance on allergenicity assessment of genetically modified plants
Abstract This document provides supplementary guidance on specific topics for the allergenicity risk assessment of genetically modified plants. In particular, it supplements general recommendationsExpand
The Palermo Capuchin Catacombs Project: a multidisciplinary approach to the study of a modern Mummy Collection (ca 1600-1900)
In this paper we present a multidisciplinary project for the study of the present conditions, history, bioanthropological features and conservation status of a large collection of modern humanExpand
