Chronological histological alterations of Metarhizium anisopliae during interaction with the cattle tick Boophilus microplus were investigated by light and scanning electron microscopy. M. anisopliae invades B. microplus by a process which involves adhesion of conidia to the cuticle, conidia germination, formation of appressoria and penetration through the(More)
Beauveria bassiana is a well-known broad-range arthropod pathogen which has been used in biological control of several pest insects and ticks such as Boophilus microplus. Beauveria amorpha has both endophytic and entomopathogenic characteristics, but its capacity for biological control has still not been studied. During the processes of host infection, B.(More)
Trichoderma spp. are known for their biocontrol activity against several plant pathogens. A specific isolate of Trichoderma harzianum, 303/02, has the potential to inhibit the growth of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, an important agent involved in several crop diseases. In this study, the interaction between T. harzianum 303/02 and mycelia, sclerotia and(More)
Creatine/phosphorylcreatine (PCr) responses to creatine supplementation may be modulated by age, diet and tissue, but studies assessing this possibility are lacking. Therefore, we aimed to determine whether the PCr responses vary as a function of age, diet, and tissue. Fifteen children, 17 omnivorous and 14 vegetarian adults, and 18 elderly participated in(More)

The effect of heat stress (45°C) versus non-heat stress (27°C) on germination of Metarhizium anisopliae sensu stricto (s.s.) isolate IP 119 was examined with conidia formulated (suspended) in pure mineral oil or in water (Tween 80, 0.01%), and then applied onto the cuticle of Rhipicephalus sanguineus sensu lato (s.l.) engorged females or onto culture medium(More)
In this work, an alternative to conventional preparation procedures for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis of Cryptococcus neoformans was performed. The cells were fixed directly in the agar culture. This method is simpler than others already reported and the morphology of the cells was well preserved.
AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms of action of fisetin, a flavonol with antifungal activity previously evaluated against the Cryptococcus neoformans species complex. METHODS AND RESULTS Ergosterol content and flow cytometry analysis were determined for the C. neoformans species complex in the presence of fisetin and(More)
Crude ethanol extracted from Magonia pubescens trunks was utilized to prove its effect in the intestinal tract of Aedes aegypti 3rd instar larvae. Exposure times (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 13 hours) were tested to verify when the morphological alterations begin to occur, in the intestinal tract of the larvae. The toxic effect of the extract was mainly in the(More)
