The role of intracellular symbionts contributing to their host has been investigated in the planthoppers,Nilaparvata lugens Stal andLaodelphax striatellus Fallen. We have found that the isolated yeastlike symbionts, identified as a member of the genusCandida, from the host's egg produce ergosterol when cultured. A comparative study of sterols in the cultured symbionts, the host insects, aposymbiotic host insects, and dietary plants demonstrated that ergosterol produced in the symbiotes is… Expand
Diversity in steroidogenesis of symbiotic microorganisms from planthoppers
TLDR
The above study offers further corroborating evidence for the assumption that the host insects require 24-methylenecholesterol5 as an alternate source for cholesterol1 under certain environmental conditions. Expand
The role of yeasts as insect endosymbionts.
TLDR
Several interesting symbiotic associations occur between insects and yeasts, and the benefit that accrues for the insect is better understood than the benefit to the yeasts. Expand
9 The Role of Yeasts as Insect Endosymbionts
Insect associations with fungi are common and may be casual or highly specific and obligate. For example, more than 40 fungal species are associated with the coffee berry borer (Hypothenemus hampei,Expand
Insect-Fungal Associations: Ecology and Evolution
TLDR
An impressive short book of ten chapters to cover the most important topics in this field, incorporating new molecular techniques wherever possible, and should appeal to worker in ecology, entomology, mycology, plant pathology, and biological control and pest management. Expand
Endomycobiome associated with females of the planthopper Delphacodes kuscheli (Hemiptera: Delphacidae): A metabarcoding approach
TLDR
The detection of fungi that are frequently associated with the phylloplane or are endophytes, as well as their presence in digestive tracts of other insects, suggest that feeding might be an important mechanism of their horizontal transfer in planthoppers. Expand
Yeast-like symbiotes as a sterol source in anobiid beetles (Coleoptera, Anobiidae): possible metabolic pathways from fungal sterols to 7-dehydrocholesterol.

  • 2003
TLDR
Most sterols detected in YLS were those known in the late pathway of the ergosterol biosynthesis in yeasts and most of the sterols in the beetles appear to be intermediate metabolites from YLS sterols to 7-dehydrocholesterol. Expand
Adaptation of the brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Sta°l), to resistant rice varieties
TLDR
The preliminary results indicate that feeding by mixed virulent-avirulent populations could potentially accelerate adaptation by N. lugens to resistant rice varieties and tested if virulence is acquired by shared feeding sites with virulent and avirulent planthoppers. Expand
Sterol biosynthesis by symbiotes: cytochrome P450 sterol C-22 desaturase genes from yeastlike symbiotes of rice planthoppers and anobiid beetles.
TLDR
Cytochrome P450 cysteine heme-iron ligand signature motif was well conserved among the putative amino acid sequences, and the accumulation of ergosta-5,7,24(28)-trienol in the planthopper YLS was attributed to the inability of the plan thistle YLS to produce functional ERG5p. Expand
Symbiont-mediated adaptation by planthoppers and leafhoppers to resistant rice varieties
TLDR
Evidence from a small number of experimental studies suggests that bacterial and eukaryotic symbionts can determine or mediate hopper virulence on rice plants and that symbiont functions could change over successive generations of selection on both resistant and susceptible plants. Expand
The Ecology of Yeasts in the Bark Beetle Holobiont: A Century of Research Revisited
TLDR
Infochemicals resulting from volatile production by yeast have wide-ranging bioactivity for arthropods: Yeast emissions attract beetles at low concentrations but repel beetles at high concentrations, and yeast emissions can also serve as cues to predators and parasites of bark beetles. Expand

Symbiotes of Planthoppers : I. The Isolation of Intracellular Symbiotes from the Smaller Brown Planthopper, Laodelphax striatellus FALLEN(Hemiptera : Delphacidae)
TLDR
Two yeast-like microorgani$ms were isolated from the eggs of the smaller brown planthopper, Laodeiphax striatellus FALLEN, and identified with the intraccllular symbietes present in the cggs, the ovaries of adu}t femalc, and the fat bodies of abdomen of the insects. Expand
Lipid metabolism in the symbiotes of the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum.
TLDR
The amount of radioactive acetate incorporated into the symbiote lipid fraction in vitro was found to increase as the concentration of symbiotes in culture decreased and the level of cholesterol appeared to be more than an order of magnitude higher than sterol levels previously reported for any bacteria-like microorganism. Expand
Sterols in Laodelphax striatellus with special reference to the intracellular yeastlike symbiotes as a sterol source
TLDR
It is concluded that Laodelphax striatellus has two sterol sources: one from the host plant and the other from the yeastlike symbiotes which appear to provide 24-methylenecholesterol. Expand
Nachweis einer durch symbiontische Mikroorganismen bewirkten Sterinsynthese in künstlich ernährten Aphiden (Homoptera, Rhynchota, Insecta)
TLDR
Ingestion of sodium acetate-1-C14 with the diet by the aphids leads to the appearance of a labelled sterol in the tissues of the insects. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the symbiotes resemble the Rickettsiaceae and may have arisen from a member of this group, but it is also possible that they arose from free-living bacteria rather than from non-symbiotic rickettsiae. Expand
A reappraisal of sterol biosynthesis and metabolism in aphids
TLDR
Aphids of Schizaphis graminum (Rondani) (biotype C) reared on its host-plant, Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench, sequestered campesterol, stigmasterol and sitosterol contained both [ 14C]-sitosterol and [14C]-cholesterol, indicating that these aphids are capable of dealkylation at C-24. Expand
Metabolism of steroids in insects.
TLDR
The sulfate and glucoside conjugates of sterols and ecdysteroids function, primarily, in the inactivation and excretion of steroids in insects, but can have other equally important roles related to the biosynthesis, metabolism, and transport of steroids, or the regulation of hormone titer. Expand
