Cutaneous photodamage in Koreans: influence of sex, sun exposure, smoking, and skin color.
BACKGROUND Severe wrinkles and pigmentary changes of the exposed skin indicate substantial damage due to UV radiation. Many investigators believe that the principal manifestation of photodamage inExpand
A point mutation in a glutamate‐gated chloride channel confers abamectin resistance in the two‐spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch
The molecular mechanisms and genetics of abamectin resistance mediated by target site insensitivity in the two‐spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae, were investigated by comparing two isogenicExpand
Molecular, biochemical and histochemical characterization of two acetylcholinesterase cDNAs from the German cockroach Blattella germanica
Full length cDNAs encoding two acetylcholinesterases (AChEs; Bgace1 and Bgace2) were cloned and characterized from the German cockroach, Blattella germanica. Sequence analyses showed that both genesExpand
Functional analysis and molecular characterization of two acetylcholinesterases from the German cockroach, Blattella germanica
Two acetylcholinesterases (AChEs; BgAChE1 and BgAChE2) from Blattella germanica were functionally expressed using the baculovirus system. Kinetic analysis demonstrated that BgAChE2 had higherExpand
Brief exposures of human body lice to sublethal amounts of ivermectin over‐transcribes detoxification genes involved in tolerance
Transcriptional profiling results, using our non‐invasive induction assay {short exposure intervals (2–5 h) to sublethal amounts of insecticides [
Sequence-ready BAC contig, physical, and transcriptional map of a 2-Mb region overlapping the mouse chromosome 6 host-resistance locus Cmv1.
The host-resistance locus Cmv1 controls viral replication of mouse cytomegalovirus (MCMV) in the spleen of infected mice. Cmv1 maps on distal chromosome 6, very tightly linked to the Ly49 gene familyExpand
Differential gene expression in laboratory strains of human head and body lice when challenged with Bartonella quintana, a pathogenic bacterium
Human head and body lice are obligatory hematophagous ectoparasites that belong to a single species, Pediculus humanus. Only body lice, however, are vectors of the infectious Gram‐negative bacteriumExpand
DNA barcoding of Bradysia (Diptera: Sciaridae) for detection of the immature stages on agricultural crops
We investigated the usefulness of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase (COI) DNA barcoding of the genus Bradysia for the detection of immature stages and cryptic species complex. Although the larvae ofExpand
DNA-based genotyping techniques for the detection of point mutations associated with insecticide resistance in Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata.
Three DNA-based genotyping techniques, bi-directional PCR amplification of specific allele (bi-PASA), single-stranded conformational polymorphism (SSCP) and minisequencing, have been developed andExpand
Sequencing of a New Target Genome: the Pediculus humanus humanus (Phthiraptera: Pediculidae) Genome Project
Abstract The human body louse, Pediculus humanus humanus (L.), and the human head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis, belong to the hemimetabolous order Phthiraptera. The body louse is the primaryExpand
