Pseudomonas entomophila is unique among Pseudomonas species in being able to activate a systemic immune response in both Drosophila larvae and adults. It has been subsequently shown that oral infections with high doses of this bacterium are highly pathogenic to Drosophila and cause massive destruction of the Drosophila gut epithelium. Besides Drosophila, P. entomophila was able to kill other insects from at least three different orders, suggesting that it has a potentially wide host range and… CONTINUE READING
