Physiology of intracellular symbiotes ofStegobium paniceum L. with special reference to amino acid requirements of the host
TLDR
Les auteurs ont soumis des larves de Stegobium paniceum L. à un régime contenant seulement des acides aminés en quantités variables selon l'hôte.
STUDIES ON THE SYMBIOTIC YEASTS OF TWO INSECT SPECIES, LASIODERMA SERRICORNE F. AND STEGOBIUM PANICEUM L
TLDR
The shape and appearance of the yeast-like symbionts of Lasioderma serricorne F. and Stegobium paniceum L. have been described and they exert the same growth promoting effect as dried brewers yeast when added to the food.
Dietary efficiency of natural, semi-synthetic and synthetic diets with special reference to qualitative amino acid requirements of the Khapra beetle, Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera:
TLDR
The casein part of the artificial diet was successfully replaced by the 19 amino acid mixture, however, a 19 aminoacid diet showed a lower percentage of adult emergence and longer larval period, and the 10 essential amino acids diet, though able to support development, proved interior.
Nature of growth inhibitors for Trogoderma granarium Everts (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) in lentil (Lens esculenta Moench.) and French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
TLDR
Steaming of lentil and French bean made them suitable for Trogoderma granarium Everts and probably facilitated, apart from destruction of heat labile inhibitor, the release of an assimilable form of carbohydrate needed for proper growth and development.
Lycorine — a resistance factor in the plants of subfamily Amaryllidoideae (Amaryllidaceae) against desert locust,Schistocerca gregaria F.
TLDR
Lycorine, an alkaloid was isolated from the bulbs of Hymenocallis littoralis Salisb and when sprayed on cabbage leaves inhibited the feeding of the desert locust.
