Multiple generation effects of high temperature on the development and fecundity of Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) biotype B
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the lethal high temperature for B. tabaci is over 37 °C, and the whitefly population continued expanding in the five generations at 35‬C, which will play an important role in its population extension under global warming. Expand
Reevaluation of biosecurity of Ophraella communa against sunflower (Helianthus annuus)
TLDR
It is concluded that sunflower is not a potential host plant for O. communa and the beetle is an effective host-specific biological control agent of common ragweed. Expand
Distribution of the Multidrug Resistance Gene cfr in Staphylococcus Isolates from Pigs, Workers, and the Environment of a Hog Market and a Slaughterhouse in Guangzhou, China.
TLDR
Both clonal spread and horizontal transmission via mobile elements contributed to cfr dissemination among staphylococcal isolates obtained from different sources. Expand
Induced Thermotolerance and Expression of Three Key Hsp Genes (Hsp70, Hsp21, and sHsp21) and Their Roles in the High Temperature Tolerance of Agasicles hygrophila
TLDR
The results suggest that Hsp70, Hsp21, and sHsp21 might play key roles in high temperature adaptation of A. hygrophila and help improve the understanding of their mechanism of thermotolerance. Expand
Multiple Plasmid Vectors Mediate the Spread of fosA3 in Extended-Spectrum-β-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacterales Isolates from Retail Vegetables in China
TLDR
A high rate of detection of fosA3 genes, mediated by multiple plasmid vectors, in ESBL-producing Enterobacterales from retail vegetables appears to pose a threat to public health. Expand
Evaluation of Endogenous Reference Genes of Bactrocera (Tetradacus) minax by Gene Expression Profiling under Various Experimental Conditions
TLDR
The present results indicated that the most stable candidate reference gene was RPL32 in eggs, 3rd instars, 1-, 90- and 160-day-pupae and newly emerged female and male adults and should serve as a resource to screen reference genes for gene expression studies in other insect species. Expand
cDNA Cloning of Heat Shock Protein Genes and Their Expression in an Indigenous Cryptic Species of the Whitefly Bemisia tabaci Complex from China
TLDR
The results showed that after 41°C heat-shock treatment for 1 h, the survival rates of ZHJ2 adults declined significantly and the estimated temperature required to cause 50% mortality (LT50) is 42.85°C for 1H. Expand
Population genetics of Ageratina adenophora using inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) molecular markers in China
TLDR
Assessment of biogeographic relationships among populations of the invasive Crofton weed during 2004–2006 in China revealed that A. adenophora mainly dispersed through wind and water in China, with a significant positive correlation between geographical and genetic distance. Expand
Sex ratio effects on copulation, fecundity and progeny fitness for Agasicles hygrophila, a biological control agent of alligator weed
TLDR
Females at 20% and 33.3% were found to be optimal for mass rearing of the beetle, and the copulation frequency and duration in males decreased, whereas those in females increased as the number of males increased. Expand
Effects of age at mating of both sexes on female longevity and fecundity performance in Ophraella communa LeSage (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
The effects of female and male age on female fecundity, eggs hatch rate, and adult longevity in Ophraella communa LeSage, the primary biological control agent of the invasive common ragweed, are investigated. Expand
