Both plant defence and insect adaptation involve a metabolic cost, and in a natural system most plant-insect interactions involving herbivory reach a 'stand-off' where both host and herbivore survive but develop suboptimally.
RNAi-mediated crop protection against insects.
Differentially regulated inhibitor-sensitive and insensitive protease genes from the phytophagous insect pest, Helicoverpa armigera, are members of complex multigene families.
Genome Sequence of the Pea Aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum
The genome of the pea aphid shows remarkable levels of gene duplication and equally remarkable gene absences that shed light on aspects of aphid biology, most especially its symbiosis with Buchnera.
Expression of the insecticidal lectin from snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis agglutinin; GNA) in transgenic wheat plants: effects on predation by the grain aphid Sitobion avenae
It is proposed that transgenic approaches using insecticidal genes such as gna in combination with integrated pest management present promising opportunities for the control of damaging wheat pests.
Effects of snowdrop lectin (GNA) delivered via artificial diet and transgenic plants on the development of tomato moth (Lacanobia oleracea) larvae in laboratory and glasshouse trials.
Snowdrop lectin inhibits development and decreases fecundity of the Glasshouse Potato Aphid (Aulacorthum solani) when administered in vitro and via transgenic plants both in laboratory and glasshouse…
Expression of snowdrop lectin (GNA) in transgenic rice plants confers resistance to rice brown planthopper.
Insect bioassays and feeding studies showed that GNA expressed in the transgenic rice plants decreased survival and overall fecundity of the insects, retarded insect development, and had a deterrent effect on BPH feeding.
Immunohistochemical and developmental studies to elucidate the mechanism of action of the snowdrop lectin on the rice brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stal).
Digestive proteolytic activity in larvae of tomato moth, Lacanobia oleracea; effects of plant protease inhibitors in vitro and in vivo.
