Lepidopteran larvae resist baculovirus infection by selective apoptosis of infected midgut epithelial cells and by sloughing off infected cells from the midgut. Once the infection breaches the midgut epithelial barrier and propagates from infective foci to the haemocoel, however, there are few mechanisms known to account for the resistance and clearance of infection observed in some virus-host combinations. The hypothesis that factors present in the plasma of infected pest larvae act to limit… Expand
Cloning and characterization of the secreted hemocytic prophenoloxidases of Heliothis virescens.
TLDR
Even though prophenoloxidase subunits are constitutively expressed at high levels in larval H. virescens hemocytes and fat bodies, the subunit HvPPO-1 is differentially regulated by bacterial and baculoviral infection. Expand
Effects of a protease-expressing recombinant baculovirus insecticide on the parasitoid Cotesia marginiventris (Cresson)
TLDR
Results indicate that use of AcMLF9.ScathL in insect pest management poses a slightly greater risk to the parasitoids at early stages of parasitoid development than use of the wild type virus at >LD99 dose. Expand
Plasma phenoloxidase of the larval tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens, is virucidal
TLDR
It is confirmed that phenoloxidase is the predominate activity in larval plasma accounting for inactivation of HzSNPV in vitro, and that PhenoloxIDase-dependent H2O2 production may contribute to this virucidal activity. Expand
Eicosanoid biosynthesis inhibitors increase the susceptibility of Lymantria dispar to nucleopolyhedrovirus LdMNPV.
TLDR
Eicosanoids may act at three levels of insect immune reactions to viral infection, organismal (febrile response), cellular (hemocytic microaggregation, nodulation and plasmatocytes spreading reactions) and intracellular level (mechanisms responsible for insect permissiveness to viral replication). Expand
Antiviral activity of hemolymph of Podalia against rubella virus
TLDR
Hemolymph was found to inhibit RV adsorption to the SIRC cells, and this study evaluated the effect of hemolymph on RV infected Statens Serum Institute Rabbit Cornea cells. Expand
Iron Levels Change in Larval Heliothis virescens Tissues Following Baculovirus Infection
TLDR
This first study of tissue Fe levels during viral infection of an insect clearly demonstrates that Fe homeostasis is substantially disrupted. Expand
Toward the physiological basis for increased Agrotis ipsilon multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus infection following feeding of Agrotis ipsilon larvae on transgenic corn expressing Cry1Fa2.
TLDR
The physiological basis for increased susceptibility to virus infection following exposure to Herculex I is investigated by analyzing the midgut pH, gut protease activity and peritrophic matrix structure which are important factors for both Bt toxin action and baculovirus infection. Expand
IkB genes encoded in Cotesia plutellae bracovirus suppress an antiviral response and enhance baculovirus pathogenicity against the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.
An endoparasitoid wasp, Cotesia plutellae, parasitizes larvae of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella, with its symbiotic polydnavirus, C. plutellae bracovirus (CpBV). This study analyzed theExpand
Eicosanoids mediate Galleria mellonella cellular immune response to viral infection.
TLDR
It is inferred that cyclooxygenase products, prostaglandins, mediate nodulation response to viral infection in G. mellonella. Expand
Low cost antiviral activity of Plodia interpunctella haemolymph in vivo demonstrated by dose dependent infection.
TLDR
Examining whether there is a dose-dependency in infection risk when a DNA virus is injected directly into the haemocoel shows a clear dose dependency that is indicative of an active intrahaemocoelsic immune response to DNA viruses in insects. Expand

Central Role of Hemocytes in Autographa californica M Nucleopolyhedrovirus Pathogenesis in Heliothis virescens and Helicoverpa zea
TLDR
Results demonstrated that hemocytes—by removing virus from the hemolymph instead of amplifying it and by participating in the encapsulation of infection foci—together with the host's melanization response, formed the basis of H. zea's resistance to fatal infection by AcMNPV. Expand
Comparative pathogenesis of Helicoverpa zea S nucleopolyhedrovirus in noctuid larvae.
TLDR
For both heliothines, interaction of occlusion-derived virus with primary cellular targets within the midgut epithelium was critical to the outcome of infection and a key process underlying acquisition of developmental resistance. Expand
Co-infection of Manduca sexta larvae with polydnavirus from Cotesia congregata increases susceptibility to fatal infection by Autographa californica M Nucleopolyhedrovirus.
TLDR
The results showed that during the first 9 days after inoculation, parasitized and polydnavirus-inoculated M. sexta larvae died more quickly and at higher levels than nonparasitized and sham-injected controls, suggesting that the cellular immune response was a factor in conferring resistance to fatal infection by AcMNPV-hsp70/lacZ. Expand
Comparative pathogenesis of Autographa californica M nuclear polyhedrosis virus in larvae of Trichoplusia ni and Heliothis virescens.
TLDR
Dose-mortality relationships suggested that the peritrophic membrane provided little protection from AcMNPV infections for both Trichoplusia ni and Heliothis virescens. Expand
Effect of parasitism on a nucleopolyhedrovirus amplified in Spodoptera frugiperda larvae parasitized by Campoletis sonorensis
TLDR
It is concluded that parasitism can affect the quantity of virus produced in dually infected and parasitized larvae, but no adverse effects were detected in terms of the biological activity of the virus. Expand
AcMNPV pathogenesis and developmental resistance in fifth instar Heliothis virescens.
TLDR
Autographa californica M nucleopolyhedrovirus carrying a lacZ reporter gene was used to study pathogenesis and developmental resistance in fifth instar Heliothis virescens, finding that larval/pupal death was consistent with viral inactivation of the ecdysone commitment peak. Expand

TLDR
Excellent antiviral activity was found especially against herpes simplex viruses-1 and -2 and also against vesicular stomatitis, parainfluenza-3, coxsackie B3 and sindbis viruses. Expand
Polydnavirus‐mediated inhibition of lysozyme gene expression and the antibacterial response
TLDR
It is proposed that the immunodeficiencies caused by CsPDV injection are caused, in part, by the targeted translational inhibition of specific humoral immune response transcripts. Expand
Mediated Pathogenicity of the Baculovirus HzSNPV by the Venom from Euplectrus comstockii (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
TLDR
Investigation of the compatibility of the venom from the parasitic hymenopteran species Euplectrus comstockii with the pathogenicity of HzSNPV found the presence of the baculovirus did not alter the ability ofThe venom to arrest ecdysis in larvae of H. zea. Expand
Developmental resistance in fourth instar Trichoplusia ni orally inoculated with Autographa californica M nuclear polyhedrosis virus.
TLDR
Two key factors relevant to the resistance pattern among the developmental cohorts were an age-dependent rate of establishing and/or sloughing infected midgut cells and the ability of fourth instar T. ni to completely clear infection of the midGut epithelium by ecdysis to the fifth instar. Expand
