Effect of Rapid Cold Hardening on the Cold Tolerance of the Larvae of the Rice Stem Borer, Chilo suppressalis (Walker)
TLDR
The results showed that the discriminating temperature of the larvae was about -21°C, which was significantly higher than those of the control groups. Expand
Antioxidant responses of Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) larvae exposed to thermal stress
TLDR
It is suggested that thermal stress leads to oxidative stress and that antioxidant enzymes and the Hsp70 play an important role in reducing oxidative damage in C. suppressalis larvae. Expand
TR-FRET Assays of Huntingtin Protein Fragments Reveal Temperature and PolyQ Length-Dependent Conformational Changes
TLDR
A reversible temperature dependent change of TR-FRET signals for HTT N-terminal fragments is reported: the signals become higher when the temperature is lowered from room temperature to 4°C, which is potentially useful for understanding polyQ structure and toxicity. Expand
Molecular Cloning and Characterization of Small Heat Shock Protein Genes in the Invasive Leaf Miner Fly, Liriomyza trifolii
TLDR
Results suggest that LtsHSPs play a role in the development of the invasive leaf miner fly and may facilitate insect adaptation to climate change. Expand
Selection of valid reference genes for quantitative real-time PCR in Cotesia chilonis (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) exposed to different temperatures
TLDR
Understanding of the selection of reference genes before qRT-PCR analysis in C. chilonis is strengthened, which will facilitate further investigations of the biological characteristics of this important parasitoid. Expand
Characterization and in vitro expression of arginine kinase gene in the invasive western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis.
Arginine kinase (AK) plays a critical role in insect energy metabolism and has been proposed to be a potential insecticide target for commercial exploitation. In this study, the full length cDNAExpand
Transcriptome analysis of Liriomyza trifolii (Diptera: Agromyzidae) in response to temperature stress.
TLDR
This study expands the knowledge of gene expression in L. trifolii during temperature stress and provides a basis for further studies aimed at understanding the mechanism of thermotolerance in this important invasive leafminer fly. Expand
Molecular cloning and expression patterns of two small heat shock proteins from Chilo suppressalis (Walker)
TLDR
Two CsHSP genes lacking introns from C. suppressalis were isolated and identified, and real-time quantitative PCR revealed that Cshsp23.9 and CshSp27.3 had the highest relative expression in hindgut compared with other tissues and expressed the highest in fat body content. Expand
No evidence for an effect of Wolbachia on mtDNA variation and evolution in natural populations of Sesamia inferens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
Results indicate that currently there were no effects of Wolbachia infection on host mtDNA variation and evolution in S. inferens, and significant differentiation mainly existed within groups rather than among the groups. Expand
Identification of qRT-PCR reference genes for Chilo suppressalis (Walker) during parasitism by Cotesia chilonis (Matsumura)
TLDR
Insight is provided on gene expression in C. suppressalis and is especially relevant to further experiments that explore the effectiveness of C. chilonis in biological control and the combination of TUB, EF1 and NADHD was optimal for normalizing expression. Expand
