Structural studies on lipophorin, an insect lipoprotein.
An insect high density lipoprotein, lipophorin, can be rapidly isolated from larval Manduca sexta (tobacco hornworm) hemolymph by single vertical spin density gradient ultracentrifugation. The two… Expand
Ovarian ecdysone secretion is controlled by a brain hormone in an adult mosquito
In the mosquito Aedes aegypti, a blood meal triggers egg development. Early workers used the simple technique of decapitation, or neck ligation, to show that a factor from the head was required for… Expand
Ovarian cyclic AMP and response to a brain hormone from the mosquito Aedes aegypti
- J. Shapiro
Abstract Cyclic AMP was studied as a potential second messenger in hormone-stimulated ecdysone secretion by isolated mosquito ( Aedes aegypti ) ovaries. Saline extracts of whole mosquito heads… Expand
Effect of soil moisture on development of Diaprepes abbreviatus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
We conducted trials to determine conditions of soil moisture required to optimize production of adults of Diaprepes abbreviatus (L.) in a laboratory colony. Larvae of D. abbreviatus were reared on a… Expand
Oral toxicity to flesh flies of a neurotoxic polypeptide.

An insect selective neurotoxic polypeptide from venom of the scorpion Androctonus australis (AaIT, M(r) 8,000) was shown to cross the midgut of the flesh fly Sarcophaga falculata, using assays of… Expand
A Cytochrome P450 Mediated Naringenin 3′-Hydroxylase from Sweet Orange Cell Cultures
BIOASSAY AND EFFICACY OF BACILLUS THURINGIENSIS AND AN ORGANOSILICONE SURFACTANT AGAINST THE CITRUS LEAFMINER (LEPIDOPTERA: PHYLLOCNISTIDAE)
Two laboratory bioassays were developed for testing insect pathogens for control of larval citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton, in isolated citrus leaves. An organosilicone surfactant… Expand
Research Toward an Artificial Diet for Adult Asian Citrus Psyllid
ABSTRACT Research progress is reported on an artificial diet for adult Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae). The primary objective was to develop a system for… Expand
Caribbean fruit fly status, economic importance, and control (Diptera: Tephritidae)
The natural resistance of citrus fruit to attack by the Caribbean fruit fly (caribfly) varies according to fruit senescence and cultivar. Lemons are virtually immune, oranges are highly resistant,… Expand
Oviposition and Isolation of Viable Eggs from Orius insidiosus in a Parafilm and Water Substrate: Comparison with Green Beans and Use in Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
Abstract Plant parts are commonly used as oviposition substrates for mass rearing of Orius spp., but this system does not permit the isolation of clean intact eggs for use as standards in a yolk… Expand
