DpAV-4 is a symbiotic ascovirus found in natural populations of the solitary endoparasitoid wasp Diadromus pulchellus. The female wasp injects this virus into the pupae of the leek-moth Acrolepiopsis assectella during oviposition. The ascovirus replicates in the pupal tissues and the consequent lysis of the cells occurs synchronously with egg hatching and the development of the wasp larva. We show here that encapsulation and capsule melanization were activated when minute nylon monofilaments… CONTINUE READING
