Abstract Prepupae of Hypera eximia (LeConte) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), a natural host, and prepupae of factitious insect hosts were tested for their physiological responses to stinging by the gregarious ectoparasite, Necremnus breviramulus Gahan (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae), and to injection with an extract of the venom gland tissue dissected from the lower reproductive tract of the female parasite. The arrestment of development produced by N. breviramulus venom was expressed in the natural… Expand
Venom of ectoparasitoid, Euplectrus sp near plathypenae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) regulates the physiological state of Pseudaletia separata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) host as a food resource.
TLDR
It is concluded that the injected venom increased the hemolymph content of lipid and protein to support the growth and development of the ectoparasitoid larva. Expand
In vivo and in vitro activity of venom from the endoparasitic wasp Pimpla turionellae (L.) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae).
TLDR
Wasp venom was found to be cytotoxic and cytolytic to cultured cells derived from the cabbage looper Trichoplusia ni Hubner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) and the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culcidae). Expand

TLDR
The present paper reviews for the first time the venom antimicrobial potential of solitary and social Hymenoptera in molecular, ecological, and evolutionary perspectives. Expand
Effect of different host substrates on hemipteran salivary protein profiles *
TLDR
Starved insects fed and salivated more than the non-starved insects, yet the protein components of the saliva were similar, and in contrast to the phytophagous insects, P. maculiventris showed minimal differences in salivary protein profiles after feeding on Trichoplusia ni or an artificial diet. Expand
A meridic diet for continuous rearing of Arma chinensis (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae: Asopinae)
TLDR
Over successive generations of rearing on the diet some of the characteristics improved, such as developmental time, survival from 2nd instar to adult, sex ratio, adult weight, fecundity and fertility, which may indicate that the predators experience some degree of adaptation to, or genetic selection for, the diet after several consecutive generations. Expand
Determination of Venom Components from the Endoparasitoid Wasp Pimpla turionellae L. (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae)
TLDR
Analysis indicated that venom primarily contains proteins with molecular weights between 20 and 106 kDa, and infrared spectroscopic data confirmed the acidic nature of the venom and the presence of amines, peptides, proteins, and enzymes in the venom. Expand
Developmental response of Euplectrus comstockii to ascorbic acid in the diet of the larval host, Heliothis virescens
TLDR
Odds and odds ratio analyses showed that the probability of egg hatch and adult emergence for the wasp increased with the amount of ascorbic acid in the diet of the host, and that the rate of development and probability of female or male progeny was similar for most levels of ascornic acid tested.

Developmental responses of Trichoplusia ni (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to parasitism by the ectoparasite Euplectrus plathypenae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
Parasitism by Euplectrus plathypenae inhibits larval-larval ecdysis in Tn'choplusia ni by injecting nonparalytic factor(s) into the host during the stinging process via the parasitoid's ovipositor.Expand
Response of Natural and Factitious Hosts to the Ectoparasite Euplectrus plathypenae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
TLDR
The arrestment of development produced by E. plathypenae was expressed in all natural hosts and in most, but not all, insects outside the natural host range of the parasite. Expand
Bionomics of Three Nearctic Species, One New, of Hypera (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), and Their Parasites
TLDR
Parasites reared from various stages of the weevils were: egg, Anaphes behmani Girault (Mymaridae); pupa, Necremnus breviramulus Gahan (Eulophidae), Spilochalcis albifrons (Walsh), and Gambrus ultimus (Cresson) (Ichneumonidae); larva, an undescribed Bathyplectes, n. Expand
Immunoanalysis of unique protein in Trichoplusia ni larvae parasitized by the braconid wasp Chelonus near curvimaculatus
TLDR
In parasitized insects, expression of the parasitism-specific protein appears to be stage-specific in that it is only detected during the last larval stadium of precociously metamorphosing larvae, but is absent from all earlier stages of development. Expand
Morphological and Chemical Differences Between the Ectoparasitoids Euplectrus comstockii and E. Plathypenae (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
TLDR
The pattern of sensory pores on the male scape proved to be the most reliable morphological distinction between E. comstockii Howard and E. Plathypenae Howard. Expand

TLDR
A recombinant that contains an insect specific toxin gene (AaIT) under the control of the promoter from an immediate early gene (ie1) ofAutographa californicanuclear polyhedrosis virus is produced, confirming the ability of this promoter to provide early and abundant expression of gene products with potential pesticidal activity.
