Efficacy of Pyriproxyfen-Treated Nets in Sterilizing and Shortening the Longevity of Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The sterilizing and life-shortening effects of pyriproxyfen on the vector mosquito indicate that the combined use of pyrproxyfen and pyrethroids on bed nets has the potential to provide better malaria control and prevent the further development of pyrethroid resistance in malaria vectors.
The diageotropica Mutation and Synthetic Auxins Differentially Affect the Expression of Auxin-Regulated Genes in Tomato
TLDR
The data suggest the presence of two auxin-dependent signal transduction pathways: one that regulates LeSAUR and LeAux mRNA accumulation and is interrupted by the dgt mutation and a second that regulates Lepar mRNA collection and is not defective in dgt tomato hypocotyls.
Sugar Regulates mRNA Abundance of H+-ATPase Gene Family Members in Tomato
TLDR
The results suggest that the induction of expression of H+-ATPase genes by metabolizable sugars may be part of a generalized cellular response to increased cell growth and metabolism promoted by the availability of an abundant carbon source.
The Effect of Pyriproxyfen as a “Population Growth Regulator” against Aedes albopictus under Semi-Field Conditions
TLDR
The results indicate that tarsal contact with pyriproxyfen has been shown to suppress egg production and hatchability in adult females and the auto-dissemination of pyri proxyfen into larval breeding sites by adult mosquitoes, through contact withpyriproxyen-treated polyethylene bed nets, may suppress the mosquito population density.
Lethal dose and horizontal transfer of bistrifluron, a benzoylphenylurea, in workers of the Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
The lethal dose and horizontal transmission of bistrifluron were examined in workers of the Formosan subterranean termite Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki in laboratory no-choice feeding tests and it was indicated that approximately 400 ng/termite or more bistRIFluron should accumulate in a single worker for insecticidal efficacy.
Isolation and Characterization of a Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Mutant Resistant to Photobleaching Herbicides
TLDR
RS-3 was resistant to oxadiazon, oxyfluorfen and acifluorfen-ethyl which had been shown to have the same mechanism of action as N -phenylimide herbicides, but not to paraquat, diuron or fluridone.
Mechanism of Developmental Effects in Rats Caused by an N-Phenylimide Herbicide: Transient Fetal Anemia and Sequelae during Mid-to-Late Gestation.
TLDR
Developmental toxicity results from PPO inhibition in primitive erythroblasts, causing transient fetal anemia followed by death, and inhibition of PPO in rats, rabbits, and humans by the herbicides in vitro is proposed.
Assignment of most genes encoding major peroxisomal polypeptides to chromosomal band V of the asporogenic yeast Candida tropicalis
TLDR
The results suggested that C. tropicalis was diploid and that restriction sites were conserved little between homologues, implying that the allelic genes were present on different chromosomal bands.
Studies on a new herbicidal antibiotic, homoalanosine.
TLDR
The chemical structure of homoalanosine was determined to be L-2-amino-4-nitrosohydroxyaminobutyric acid and the antibiotic has high herbicidal activity at low concentrations against especially common cocklebur and ladysthumb among the tested weeds and crops.
