Recent studies suggest that insects use pattern recognition molecules to distinguish prokaryotic pathogens and fungi from “self” structures. Less understood is how the innate immune system of insects recognizes endoparasitic Hymenoptera and other eukaryotic invaders as foreign. Here we discuss candidate recognition factors and the strategies used by parasitoids to overcome host defense responses. We suggest that host–parasitoid systems are important experimental models for studying how the… 
Insect immune resistance to parasitoids
TLDR
This review examines some of the components of the innate immune response of Drosophila, an insect that has served as an exceptionally good experimental model for studying non‐self recognition processes and immune cell signaling mechanisms.
Nematobacterial Complexes and Insect Hosts: Different Weapons for the Same War
TLDR
It is clear that these two species use shared immunosuppression strategies, but there are differences in both the mechanism of evasion and interference of the two nematodes with the insect host immune pathways.
Insect Defense System and Immunosuppression Strategies of Entomopathogenic Nematodes - An Overview
TLDR
The review outlines the mechanisms of immune recognition and defense of insects as well as immune evasion strategies of Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs).
Early suppression of immune response in Heliothis virescens larvae by the endophagous parasitoid Toxoneuron nigriceps
TLDR
The main alterations of the host immune response observed shortly after oviposition by T. nigriceps are described, which suggest the occurrence of apoptosis in the host plasmatocytes.
The mechanism utilized by Toxoneuron nigriceps in inhibiting the host immune system
TLDR
The contribution of all the parasitic components during alterations of the host immune response observed after oviposition by T. nigriceps is described.

Immunological basis for compatibility in parasitoid-host relationships.
TLDR
The insect immune system serves as a key defense against attack by parasitoids, which has likely played a critical role in evolution of host range and in defining parasitoid-host compatibility.
A protein with protective properties against the cellular defense reactions in insects.
TLDR
The molecular cloning of a 32-kDa protein (Crp32) that is one of the major protective components of an insect parasitoid host interaction is reported that is produced in the calyx cells of the female wasp ovaries and attached to the surface of the egg and other particles including polydnaviruses.

Biological mediators of insect immunity.
TLDR
A component of insect immune responses to bacteria is the synthesis by fat body and hemocytes of a variety of antibacterial proteins and peptides, which are secreted into the hemolymph.
A peptidoglycan recognition protein in innate immunity conserved from insects to humans.
TLDR
It is concluded that PGRP is a ubiquitous protein involved in innate immunity, conserved from insects to humans, and binds strongly to Gram-positive bacteria.
Host haemocyte inactivation by an insect parasitoid: transient expression of a polydnavirus gene.
TLDR
It is shown that a single polydnavirus gene is expressed inside the caterpillar haemocytes in a transient fashion between 4 to 8 h post-parasitization.
