Morphogenesis and cytopathic effects of the Diachasmimorpha longicaudata entomopoxvirus in host haemocytes.
Oogenesis of Diadegma semiclausum (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) and its associated polydnavirus
TLDR
A detailed ultrastructural analysis of ovary and calyx cell differentiation of Diadegma semiclausum revealed a new polydnavirus in the genus ichnovirus that was not attached to the surface of the egg chorion.
A Homolog of the Vaccinia Virus D13L Rifampicin Resistance Gene is in the Entomopoxvirus of the Parasitic wasp, Diachasmimorpha longicaudata
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequences suggested that DlEPV arose from the same ancestral node as other entomopoxviruses but belongs to a separate clade from those of the grasshopper- infecting M. sanguinipes entmopoxvirus and from the Lepidoptera-infecting A. moorei entomoboxv virus and H. armigera entomoplus sangu inipes.
Radiation on Medfly Larvae of tslVienna-8 Genetic Sexing Strain Displays Reduced Parasitoid Encapsulation in Mass-Reared Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
TLDR
Improvements in the mass rearing of Diachasmimorpha longicaudata on larvae of the Vienna-8 temperature-sensitive lethal genetic sexing strain of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), Argentina, are currently under way, and high levels of superparasitism seemingly helped to overcome the host's immune reaction by the surviving parasitoid larva.
Additional heritable virus in the parasitic wasp Leptopilina boulardi: prevalence, transmission and phenotypic effects.
TLDR
It is found that the presence of LbTV correlates with an increase in the number of offspring, mostly due to increased survival of parasitoid larvae, and underline the high incidence and diversity of inherited viruses in parasitoids as well as their potential impact on the phenotype of their hosts.
A Mutualistic Poxvirus Exhibits Convergent Evolution with Other Heritable Viruses in Parasitoid Wasps
TLDR
A novel case of beneficial virus evolution is illustrated, in which a virus of unique origin has undergone convergent evolution with other viral elements associated with parasitoid wasps to provide an analogous function throughout parasitism.
Review of Venoms of Non-Polydnavirus Carrying Ichneumonoid Wasps
Simple Summary Parasitoid wasps play an important role in all terrestrial ecosystems (both natural and agricultural) regulating the population densities of many herbivorous insects. Venom components

Biological and molecular features of the relationships between Diadromus pulchellus ascovirus, a parasitoid hymenopteran wasp (Diadromus pulchellus) and its lepidopteran host, Acrolepiopsis assectella.
TLDR
The presence of the DpAV genome in all Diadromus somatic cells suggests that it is inherited by vertical transmission and its relationship with the parasitoid wasp D. pulchellus during its development are compared to those of the ichnoviruses.
Co-replication of a reovirus and a polydnavirus in the ichneumonid parasitoid Hyposoter exiguae.
TLDR
Most, but not all, individuals comprising the H. exiguae colony appeared to be infected with HeRV, suggesting a commensal relationship between wasp and virus; however, while this association is of obvious benefit to the virus, it seems unlikely that any advantage accrues to the parasitoid which carries it.
Purification and Partial Characterization of an Entomopoxvirus (DlEPV) from a Parasitic Wasp of Tephritid Fruit Flies.
TLDR
DlEPV is a true EPV and probably a member of the Group C EPVs, which may represent a new EPV Group, or a subgroup of the Groups C viruses.
Serosal cells of biosteres longicaudatus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae): ultrastructure and release of polypeptides
TLDR
It appears that the serosa of B. longicaudatus has a synthetic function, as has been reported for the extra-embryonic membrane of other parasitic Hymenoptera, and may sequester and degrade molecules from the host hemolymph and likely release newly synthesized as well as degraded products into the host.
Expression and hemocyte-targeting of a Campoletis sonorensis polydnavirus cysteine-rich gene in Heliothis virescens larvae.
TLDR
Immunofluorescence assays showed that the VHv1.4 protein binds to the hemocytes, most notably the granulocytes, in H. virescens larvae, implying an important function in the suppression of host cellular encapsulation response.
Virus-like particles from the poison glands of the parasitic wasp Biosteres longicaudatus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae)
TLDR
Two virus-like particles occur in the venom apparatus (poison glands) associated with the ovaries of the parasitic wasp Biosteres longicaudatus and have an electron-dense crystalline matrix within a stroma surrounded by vesicles.
