Abstract. The principal intracellular symbiotic bacteria of the cereal weevil Sitophilus oryzae were characterized using the sequence of the 16S rDNA gene (rrs gene) and G + C content analysis. Polymerase chain reaction amplification with universal eubacterial primers of the rrs gene showed a single expected sequence of 1,501 bp. Comparison of this sequence with the available database sequences placed the intracellular bacteria of S. oryzae as members of the Enterobacteriaceae family, closely… CONTINUE READING
