Midgut proteases from Mamestra configurata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) larvae: characterization, cDNA cloning, and expressed sequence tag analysis.
The activities of digestive protease within the midgut of Mamestra configurata (bertha armyworm) larvae were examined using specific substrates and protease inhibitors. The bulk of the activity wasExpand

Modeling the structure of the type I peritrophic matrix: characterization of a Mamestra configurata intestinal mucin and a novel peritrophin containing 19 chitin binding domains.
Twelve to fourteen integral proteins were found to reside in the Type I peritrophic matrix (PM) of Mamestra configurata (bertha armyworm) larvae. Several methods were employed, including de novoExpand

Molecular markers for Peristenus spp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) parasitoids associated with Lygus spp. (Hemiptera: Miridae)
Des marqueurs moleculaires capables d'identifier les parasitoides Peristenus spp. au niveau specifique et des marqueurs moleculaires preliminaires capables de distinguer les deux groupes d'especes deExpand

Estimating parasitism levels in Lygus spp. (Hemiptera: Miridae) field populations using standard and molecular techniques
Host dissection, host rearing and PCR analysis were used to estimate parasitism level and identify the parasitoid complex in Lygus spp. populations in alfalfa. Parasitism level estimates by PCR wereExpand

Immunologic Identification of Papillomavirus Antigen in Condyloma Tissues from the Female Genital Tract
Paraffin sections of condylomata acuminata removed from the lower genital canal were stained for papillomavirus antigen by the peroxidase-antiperoxidase test using a broadly cross-reactive antiserum.Expand

Possible association of sudden infant death with partial complement C4 deficiency revealed by post-mortem DNA typing of HLA class II and III genes
Based on evidence of an increased rate of respiratory infections in sudden infant death (SID) infants as well as the observation of familial occurrence, we analysed in a retrospective study class IIExpand

Stable Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin content in interspecific F1 and backcross populations of wild Brassica rapa after Bt gene transfer
Stable expression of a transgene may lead to increased fitness for wild plants after acquiring the transgene via crop–weed hybridization. Here, we investigate the stability of Bt toxin content inExpand

Hyperparasitism by Mesochorus spp. (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) in Peristenus sp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) and development of PCR primers for hyperparasitoid detection☆
Abstract Peristenus sp. pupae collected from Lygus spp. nymphs in 2001 and 2002 were over-wintered in the laboratory. In both years, more than 30% of adults emerging from over-wintering pupae wereExpand

Confirmation of the papillomavirus etiology of condylomatous cervix lesions by the peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique.
The peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique with the use of paraffin sections of 67 cervical biopsy specimens and an antiserum cross-reactive with all papillomaviruses provided immunologic confirmationExpand
