Distribution of 16 EPA-priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sludges collected from nine Tunisian wastewater treatment plants.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are organic compounds which may be present as contaminants in wastewater sewage sludge. Due to their toxicity and persistence in the solid phase, informationExpand
Analysis of Anal Secretions from Phlaeothripine Thrips
The anal secretions of 16 phlaeothripine thrips species (Thysanoptera: Phlaeothripidae) were studied, including a reinvestigation of three species previously reported. A total of 37 components wereExpand
Niemann–Pick type C2 protein mediating chemical communication in the worker ant
Significance Worker ants are responsible for various tasks for their colony. In their chemical communication, odorant-binding proteins and chemosensory proteins, which accumulate in the sensillumExpand
Mutations specifically blocking differentiation of macroconidia Neurospora crassa.
The asexual life cycle of Neurospora crassa is comprised of three stages, vegetative hyphae, aerial hyphae, and macroconidia. Under appropriate environmental conditions these stages occur in anExpand
Unsaturated Cuticular Hydrocarbons Synergize Responses to Sex Attractant Pheromone in the Yellow Peach Moth, Conogethes punctiferalis
Four trienyl hydrocarbons, (Z3, Z6, Z9)-tricosatriene (Z3, Z6, Z9-23:HC), (Z3, Z6, Z9)-pentacosatriene (Z3, Z6, Z9-25:HC), (Z3, Z6, Z9)-heptacosatriene (Z3, Z6, Z9-27:HC), and (Z3, Z6,Expand
Kinetic analysis of hydroxylation of saturated fatty acids by recombinant P450foxy produced by an Escherichia coli expression system.
Cytochrome P450foxy (P450foxy, CYP505) is a fused protein of cytochrome P450 (P450) and its reductase isolated from the fungus Fusarium oxysporum, which catalyzes the subterminal (omega-1Expand
Mechanisms regulating caste differentiation in an aphid social system
For evolution and maintenance of the social systems of insect colonies, caste production should be controlled in response to external cues so that caste ratio in the colony is kept in an optimalExpand
Oviposition attractants for Plodia interpunctella (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in the volatiles of whole wheat flour
Abstract Plodia interpunctella is attracted to whole wheat flour. Volatiles obtained from whole wheat flour by Porapak Q trapping were assayed using pitfall olfactometers, and were attractive toExpand
Unusual periodicity of sex pheromone production in the large black chaferHolotrichia parallela
Abstract(R)-(−)-Linalool was identified as a minor component sex pheromone of the scarab beetleHolotrichia parallela (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae). Field evaluations revealed that, although notExpand
