We constructed an antennal transcriptome of the parasitoid wasp, Sclerodermus sp. (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae). Our analysis of the transcriptome yielded 51,830,552 clean reads. A total of 46,269 unigenes were assembled, among which 29,582 unigenes exhibited significant similarity (E-values≤10(-5)) to sequences in the NCBI nonredundant protein database. Gene(More)
Parasitoid wasps of the genus Sclerodermus (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) are an important natural enemy of the Japanese pine sawyer beetle Monochamus alternatus Hope (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae). In this study, we used scanning electron microscopy to examine the external morphology of the antennal sensilla of Sclerodermus sp. Antennae of females and males(More)
BACKGROUND Transgenic Bt rice line T2A-1 expresses a synthesized cry2A gene that shows high resistance to Lepidoptera pests, including Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Guenée) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae). Plant volatile orientation cues and the physical characteristics of the leaf surface play key roles in host location or host-plant acceptance of phytophagous(More)
Reverse chemical ecology approaches based on the recognition and transport function of odorant binding proteins (OBPs) have been used to screen behaviorally active compounds of insects. In the first place, behaviorally active compounds from Sclerodermus sp., an important ectoparasite of Monochamus alternatus Hope, were screened by SspOBP7. The Fluorescence(More)
