Production of the antibacterial substance by Bacillus sp. strain NM 12, an intestinal bacterium of Japanese coastal fish
Intestinal bacteria isolated from seven coastal fish were examined for their antibacterial ability against Vibrio vulnificus RIMD 2219009 using a double-layer method. Of 1055 bacteria examined, 28Expand
Egg Parasitoids of Phytophagous Bugs in Soybean: Mobile Natural Enemies as Naturally Occurring Biological Control Agents of Mobile Pests
It is suggested that polyphagy and high dispersal ability are the main characteristics of effective natural enemies of naturally occurring mobile pests. Expand
Vibrio sp. strain NM 10, isolated from the intestine of a Japanese coastal fish, has an inhibitory effect against Pasteurella piscicida
Vibrio sp. strain NM 10 with an inhibitory activity against Pasteurella piscicida K-III was isolated from the intestine of a spotnape ponyfish (Leiognathus nuchalis). This bacterium efficientlyExpand
Pesticides and conservation of natural enemies in pest management
Publisher Summary Pesticides have long overshadowed the importance of natural enemies in pest management programs. The high efficacy, easy accessibility, and consistent performance of chemicalExpand
Trail sex pheromone as a cue for searching mates in an insect predator Orius sauteri
Fauvergueet al. (1995) demonstrated recently that males of a parasitoid wasp, Aphelinus asychis Walker, search intensively areas where females have previously visited and leave a pheromone on the substrate which the authors described as a trail sex phersomone. Expand
Natural Enemies of Thrips palmi and Their Effectiveness in the Native Habitat, Thailand
A survey for natural enemies of Thrips palmi Karny was conducted in its native habitat, Thailand in 1987 and 1988 to develop a classical biological control program for this exotic pest of vegetables in Japan, finding the eulophid larval parasitoid Ceranisus menes (Walker) was the most effective.

Effects of Temperature on Development and Survival of the Egg Parasitoid Telenomus triptus NIXON (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) in Two Pentatomid Hosts
Eggs ef another pentatomid bsarcorts gu tiger (THuNBERG) were also parasitizcd by 71 trQbtzas in soybean fields iii Japan andKnowledgc of the efflect of tempcrature on the devclopmcnt and survival ofTempcrature. Expand
Activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase by cilostazol via a cAMP/protein kinase A- and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt-dependent mechanism.
Results suggest that cilostazol induces NO production by eNOS activation via a cAMP/PKA- and PI3K/Akt-dependent mechanism and that this effect is involved in capillary-like tube formation in HAEC. Expand
