Since Bursaphelenchus xylophilus causes serious losses in pine forestry, new ways of controlling this nematode damage are urgently needed. Arginine kinase (AK) is a phosphotransferase, which plays a critical role in cellular energy metabolism in invertebrates. It is only present in invertebrates and may be a suitable chemotherapeutic target in the control of this pest. RNA interference (RNAi) technology has been developed in biological science in recent decades as a powerful tool to silence the… CONTINUE READING
