Microplitis bicoloratus parasitism induction of apoptotic DNA fragmentation of host Spodoptera litura hemocytes has been reported. However, how M. bicoloratus parasitism regulates the host signaling pathways to induce DNA fragmentation during apoptosis remains unclear. To address this question, we performed a new RNAseq-based comparative analysis of the hemocytes transcriptomes of non-parasitized and parasitized S. litura. We were able to assemble a total of more than 11.63 Gbp sequence, to… 

Figures from this paper

Spodoptera litura cyclophilin A is required for Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus-induced apoptosis during insect cellular immune response.
TLDR
It is found that expression of cyclophilin A (CypA) was significantly upregulated in Spodoptera litura hemocytes at 6-day post-parasitization, suggesting that the upregulation of CypA is linked to MbBV infection in insect cells.
Inhibition of translation initiation factor eIF4A is required for apoptosis mediated by Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus.
TLDR
Findings suggested that MbBV inhibited the expression of eIF4A, which was required for apoptosis mediated by MbV, which will contribute to biological pest control and enhance the understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying polydnavirus-parasitoid-host interaction.
Identification of β-chain of Fo F1 -ATPase in apoptotic cell population induced by Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus and its role in the development of Spodoptera litura.
TLDR
It is found that Fo F1 -ATPase β-chain was expressed and localized on the cell membrane in the apoptotic cells, and involved in the development of S. litura.
Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus regulates cyclophilin A-apoptosis-inducing factor interaction to induce cell apoptosis in the insect immunosuppressive process.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the CypA-AIF interaction plays an important role in MbBV-induced innate immune suppression and will help to clarify aspects of insect immunological mechanisms and will be relevant to biological pest control.
A polydnaviral genome of Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus and molecular interactions between the host and virus involved in NF-κB signaling
TLDR
Data show that viral IκB-like transcription does not inhibit host NF-κB/IκB expression, suggesting that transcription of these genes might be regulated by different mechanisms.
The multifunctional polydnavirus TnBVANK1 protein: impact on host apoptotic pathway
TLDR
Results indicate that TnBVANK1 induces apoptosis by interacting with Alix, suggesting a role of TnVank1 in the suppression of host immune response observed after parasitisation by T. nigriceps.
Bracovirus sneaks into apoptotic bodies transmitting immunosuppressive signaling driven by integration-mediated eIF5A hypusination
TLDR
It is suggested that integration-mediated eIF5A hypusination drives extracellular vesicles for continues immunosuppressive treatment of polydnavirus infection.
Response analysis of host Spodoptera exigua larvae to infection by Heliothis virescens ascovirus 3h (HvAV-3h) via transcriptome
TLDR
It was determined that the majority of host transcripts were down-regulated beginning at 6’hpi and continuing throughout the infection period, although there was an increase in up-regulated unigene number during the 12 to 72 hpi stage.

Disruption effect of Microplitis bicoloratus polydnavirus EGF-like protein, MbCRP, on actin cytoskeleton in lepidopteran insect hemocytes.
TLDR
Results suggest that expression of MbCRP in lepidopteran insect cells is related to the disruption of the actin cytoskeleton.
Protein tyrosine phosphatase-H2 from a polydnavirus induces apoptosis of insect cells.
TLDR
The results indicate that specific genes expressed by MdBV induce apoptosis of certain insect cells and that this activity contributes to immunosuppression of hosts.
Microplitis demolitor polydnavirus induces apoptosis of a specific haemocyte morphotype in Pseudoplusia includens.
TLDR
It is suggested that MdPDV promotes its own survival by inducing apoptosis of host immune cells which would otherwise kill the developing M. demolitor egg.

The Encapsidated Genome of Microplitis demolitor Bracovirus Integrates into the Host Pseudoplusia includens
TLDR
It is reported that all 15 genomic segments of the MdBV encapsidated genome exhibited long-term persistence in CiE1 cells, suggesting that the integration of each genomic segment into host cells occurs through a shared mechanism.
Nucleolar Proteins Suppress Caenorhabditis elegans Innate Immunity by Inhibiting p53/CEP-1
TLDR
Results reveal an ancient immune mechanism by which the nucleolus may regulate immune responses against bacterial pathogens, and indicate that the activation of innate immunity by inhibition of nucleolar proteins requires p53/CEP-1 and its transcriptional target SYM-1.
