Sequence analysis and expression of the polyhedrin gene of Choristoneura fumiferana cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (CfCPV).
The segmented double-stranded RNA genome of Choristoneura fumiferana cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (CfCPV) was extracted, polyadenylated, reverse-transcribed into cDNA and cloned. The cDNA clonesExpand
Land-use influences the distribution and activity of high affinity CO-oxidizing bacteria associated to type I-coxL genotype in soil
Soil carboxydovore bacteria are the biological sink of atmospheric carbon monoxide (CO). The initial oxidation of CO is catalyzed by a CO-dehydrogenase (CODH), and the gene coxL encodes the largeExpand
Surveying the endomicrobiome and ectomicrobiome of bark beetles: The case of Dendroctonus simplex
Many bark beetles belonging to the Dendroctonus genus carry bacterial and fungal microbiota, forming a symbiotic complex that helps the insect to colonize the subcortical environment of the hostExpand
Identification and sequence analyses of the granulin gene of Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus
SummaryThe nucleotide sequence of the granulin gene of Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus (CfGV) was determined. The gene encodes a protein of 248 amino acids with a predicted Mr of 29.299 kDa.Expand
The effect of cold temperature exposure and long‐day photoperiod on the termination of the reproductive diapause of newly emerged female Pissodes strobi (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
Abstract 1 There is confusion in the literature concerning a possible reproductive diapause in the adult white pine weevil Pissodes strobi. 2 We evaluated the effects of temperature, photoperiod,Expand
Molecular Characterization of Three New Avian Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV) Strains Isolated in Quebec
Three unrecognized field isolates of Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV) were recovered from commercial broiler chickens vaccinated with live Mass viral strain (H120). These isolates were identified byExpand
The complex symbiotic relationships of bark beetles with microorganisms: a potential practical approach for biological control in forestry.
Bark beetles, especially Dendroctonus species, are considered to be serious pests of the coniferous forests in North America. Bark beetle forest pests undergo population eruptions, causing regionExpand
Towards the Development of an Autocontamination Trap System to Manage Populations of Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) with the Native Entomopathogenic Fungus, Beauveria bassiana
ABSTRACT Emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) is an invasive species from Asia that was discovered in North America Canada, in 2002. Herein, we describeExpand
Identification, characterization and phylogenic analysis of conserved genes within the odvp-6e/odv-e56 gene region of Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus.
The genes that are located within the odvp-6e/odv-e56 region of the Choristoneura fumiferana granulovirus (ChfuGV) were identified by sequencing the 11 kb BamHI restriction fragment on the ChfuGVExpand
Prevalence of baculoviruses in spruce budworm (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) populations in New Brunswick
Abstract Outbreak and declining populations of spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.)) were sampled extensively at three locations in New Brunswick, Canada, between 1982 and 1992 and wereExpand
