Trophic factors are required to ensure neuronal viability and regeneration after neural injury. Although abundant information is available on the factors that cause the activation of astrocytes, little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of this process. Nucleotides released into the extracellular space from injured or dying(More)
We have recently detected the endosymbiont Wolbachia in multiple individuals and populations of the grasshopper Chorthippus parallelus (Orthoptera: acrididae). This bacterium induces reproductive anomalies, including cytoplasmic incompatibility. Such incompatibilities may help explain the maintenance of two distinct subspecies of this grasshopper, C.(More)
