Analysis of the grapevine moth Lobesia botrana antennal transcriptome and expression of odorant-binding and chemosensory proteins.
The grapevine moth, Lobesia botrana, is considered a harmful pest for vineyards in Chile as well as in North America and Europe. Currently, monitoring and control methods of L. botrana are based onExpand

Behavioral and electrophysiological responses of Hylastinus obscurus to volatiles released from the roots of Trifolium pratense L.
Root volatiles from field-collected red clover plants, Trifolium pratense L., of five different ages were trapped by solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and analyzed by gas chromatography-massExpand

The essential oil of Laurelia sempervirens is toxic to Trialeurodes vaporariorum and Encarsia formosa
Abstract Essential oils can be an important tool for controlling crop pests, but to use it as a complement of biological control is also necessary to determine its toxicity to beneficial insects. TheExpand

β‐Ionone as putative semiochemical suggested by ligand binding on an odorant‐binding protein of Hylamorpha elegans and electroantennographic recordings
Currently, odorant‐binding proteins (OBPs) are considered the first filter for olfactory information for insects and constitute an interesting target for pest control. Thus, an OBP (HeleOBP) from theExpand

Domestication in Murtilla (Ugni molinae) Reduced Defensive Flavonol Levels but Increased Resistance against a Native Herbivorous Insect
ABSTRACT Plant domestication can have negative consequences for defensive traits against herbivores, potentially reducing the levels of chemical defenses in plants and consequently their resistanceExpand

Electrophysiological and behavioral responses of pea weevil Bruchus pisorum L. (Coleóptera: Bruchidae) to volatiles collected from its host Pisum sativum L
The pea weevil (Bruchus pisorum L.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) is one of the most damaging pests of pea (Pisum sativum L.) We investigated the role of pea volatiles on the electrophysiological andExpand
