Twenty-four hours after parasitization by the braconid parasitoid Cotesia congregata, Manduca sexta larvae showed a strong suppression of their encapsulation response to positively charged polysaccharide (Sephadex A-25) beads. In contrast, by 8 days post-parasitization, the frequency of encapsulation of injected beads was no longer distinguishable from that observed in nonparasitized controls. This pattern of induction of encapsulation suppression followed by recovery was temporally correlated… CONTINUE READING
