An entomopathogenic bacterium, Xenorhabdus nematophila, inhibits the expression of an antibacterial peptide, cecropin, of the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua.
ABCC transporters mediate insect resistance to multiple Bt toxins revealed by bulk segregant analysis
The current results show the involvement of different members of the ABCC family in the mode of action of B. thuringiensis proteins and expand the role of theABCC2 transporter in B.Thuringienis resistance beyond the Cry1A family of proteins to include Cry1Ca.
Parasitism by Cotesia plutellae alters the hemocyte population and immunological function of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.
RNA interference of an antimicrobial peptide, gloverin, of the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua, enhances susceptibility to Bacillus thuringiensis.
Identification of an antibacterial compound, benzylideneacetone, from Xenorhabdus nematophila against major plant-pathogenic bacteria.
RNA interference of β1 integrin subunit impairs development and immune responses of the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua.
Cotesia plutellae bracovirus suppresses expression of an antimicrobial peptide, cecropin, in the diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella, challenged by bacteria
Results indicate that PxCec expression is regulated by both immune and developmental processes in P. xylostella, and parasitization by C. plutellae inhibited the expression of P xCec by the wasp's symbiotic virus.
Genetic Difference Between Two Field Populations of Plutella xylostella (Linnée) Based on Four Polymorphic Allozymes
Eicosanoid Signaling in Insects: from Discovery to Plant Protection
It is argued that because PGs and other eicosanoids act in emergency situations, they are visible targets for development and deployment of novel insect pest management technologies.
