Precocious sexual signalling and mating in Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) sterile males achieved through juvenile hormone treatment and protein supplements
TLDR
It is suggested that methoprene treatment will increase SIT effectiveness against A. fraterculus when coupled with a diet fortified with protein, and acts as a physiological sexing method, allowing the release of mature males and immature females and hence increasing SIT efficiency. Expand
Genetics and biology of Anastrepha fraterculus: research supporting the use of the sterile insect technique (SIT) to control this pest in Argentina
TLDR
A concerted effort to gather all this knowledge scattered in numerous and often hard-to-access reports and papers and summarize their basic conclusions in a single publication is produced. Expand
Microsatellite markers from the 'South American fruit fly' Anastrepha fraterculus: a valuable tool for population genetic analysis and SIT applications
TLDR
This novel set of microsatellite markers provides valuable information for the description of genetic variability and population structure of wild populations and laboratory strains of A. fraterculus and might represent a first step towards having a more comprehensive knowledge about the genetics of this pest. Expand
Relevant genetic differentiation among Brazilian populations of Anastrepha fraterculus (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
The spatial analysis of genetic diversity indicates that the levels of diversity among the six populations vary significantly on an eco-geographical basis, as the main genetic differentiation is detected between the two populations present at higher altitudes and the other four populations at sea level. Expand
Distribution and prevalence of Nosema apis and N. ceranae in temperate and subtropical eco-regions of Argentina.
TLDR
The predominant detection of N. apis in a subtropical region joining a southern temperate region where mainly co-infected apiaries were identified is in contrast to previous reports. Expand
Origin and Distribution of Ceratitis capitata Mitochondrial DNA Haplotypes in Argentina
TLDR
The sequence analysis suggests that the AAC haplotype is most likely derived from the AABA haplotype by one nucleotide change, and conclusions about the origin of Mediterranean fruit fly populations in this country are discussed. Expand
Cytogenetic characterization of Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid wasp used as a biological control agent
TLDR
The physical characteristics of the D. longicaudata karyotype, especially the content and distribution of heterochromatin and the number and location of rDNA clusters, contribute to a better understanding of the structure and organization of braconid chromosomes and provide a basis for genomic and evolutionary studies. Expand
Cytogenetic analysis of three species of Pseudacteon (Diptera, Phoridae) parasitoids of the fire ants using standard and molecular techniques
TLDR
The apparent lack of morphologically distinct sex chromosomes is consistent with proposals of environmental sex determination in the genus, and small differences detected in chromosome length and morphology suggests that chromosomes have been highly conserved during the evolutionary radiation of Pseudacteon. Expand
Gene Discovery through Genomic Sequencing of Brucella abortus
TLDR
B. abortus homologs of virulence and pathogenesis genes from other pathogens, including a homolog to both the Shda gene fromSalmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium and the AidA-1 gene from Escherichia coli are identified. Expand
Wolbachia pipientis Associated With Tephritid Fruit Fly Pests: From Basic Research to Applications
TLDR
Based on recent methodological advances and breakthroughs concerning the mechanistic basis of CI, it is suggested research avenues that could accelerate generation of necessary knowledge for the potential use of Wolbachia-based IIT in area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) strategies for the population control of tephritid pests.
