Study on Selective Media for Isolation of Entomopathogenic Fungi
To determine the optimal isolation conditions of the entomopathogenic fungi from soil, we compared their growth characteristics with non-entomopathogenic fungi on agar media containing variousExpand

In insects transferrin is known as an iron transporter, an antibiotic agent, a vitellogenin, and a juvenile hormone regulated protein. Here, a novel functional role for insect transferrin as anExpand
Molecular and phylogenetic characterization of Spodoptera litura granulovirus
Baculovirus, Spodoptera litura granulovirus (SlGV) was isolated from the infected S. litura larvae, and was characterized. The granule of SlGV was ovoidal shape with an approximate size of 240∼340Expand
Isolation and Characterization of a Lymantria dispar Multinucleocapsid Nucleopolyhedrovirus Isolate in Korea
In Korea, a Lymantria dispar multinucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus, LdMNPV-NM, was isolated and characterized from dead L. dispar larvae. The polyhedra of LdMNPV-NM were irregularly shaped with aExpand

ABSTRACT A novel recombinant baculovirus, NeuroBactrus, was constructed to develop an improved baculovirus insecticide with additional beneficial properties, such as a higher insecticidal activityExpand
Dual Function of a Bee Venom Serine Protease: Prophenoloxidase-Activating Factor in Arthropods and Fibrin(ogen)olytic Enzyme in Mammals
Bee venom contains a variety of peptides and enzymes, including serine proteases. While the presence of serine proteases in bee venom has been demonstrated, the role of these proteins in bee venomExpand

Proteolytic enzymes are involved in insect molting and metamorphosis, and play a vital role in the programmed cell death of obsolete organs. Here we show the expression profile of cathepsin B in theExpand
Sequence and gene organization of 24 circles from the Cotesia plutellae bracovirus genome
Twenty-four genomic segments of Cotesia plutellae bracovirus (CpBV) were completely sequenced, and their genomic structures were analyzed. The aggregated genome size is 351,299 bp long and exhibitsExpand
Distribution, Serological Identification, and PCR Analysis of Bacillus thuringiensis Isolated from Soils of Korea
Abstract. A total, 58 strains of Bacillus thuringiensis were isolated from soils of various regions in Korea. Serological tests showed that B. thuringiensis isolates represented 10 H serotypes,Expand
