Glycosylation on proteins of the intestine and perimicrovillar membrane of Triatoma (Meccus) pallidipennis, under different feeding conditions
AbstractTrypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas disease, interacts with molecules in the midgut of its insect vector to multiply and reach the infective stage. Many studies suggest that the parasite binds to midgut ‐specific glycans. We identified several glycoproteins expressed in the intestine and perimicrovillar membrane (PMM) ofTriatoma (Meccus)pallidipennis under different feeding conditions. In order to assess changes in protein ‐linked glycans, we performed lectin and immunoblot analyses on glycoprotein extracts from these intestinal tissues using well‐characterized lectins, and an antibody, which col...

Mobility affects copulation and oviposition dynamics in Pieris brassicae in seminatural cages
Abstract When, how often and for how long organisms mate can have strong consequences for individual fitness and are crucial aspects of evolutionary ecology. Such determinants are likely to be of even greater importance in monandrous species and species with short adult life stages. Previous work suggests that mobility, a key dispersal‐related trait, may affect the dynamics of copulations, but few studies have investigated the impact of individual mobility on mating latency, copulation duration and oviposition latency simultaneously. In this paper, we monitored the copulation dynamics of 40 males and 40 females, as well ...

Myotropic activity and immunolocalization of selected neuropeptides of the burying beetle Nicrophorus vespilloides (Coleoptera: Silphidae)
In this study, one of the physiological activities of proctolin, myosuppressin (Nicve‐MS), myoinhibitory peptide (Trica‐MIP‐5) and the short neuropeptide F (Nicve‐sNPF) in N. vespilloides have been investigated. The tested neuropeptides were myoactive on N. vespilloides hindgut. After application of the proctolin increased hindgut contraction frequency was observed (EC50 value was 5.47 × 10−8 mol/L). The other tested neuropeptides led to inhibition of N. vespilloides hindgut contractions (Nicve‐MS: IC50 = 5.20 × 10−5 mol/L; Trica‐MIP‐5: IC50 = 5.95 × 10−6 mol/L; Nicve‐sNP...

Genetic variation and potential coinfection of Wolbachia among widespread Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri Kuwayama) populations
This study investigated the genetic diversity of wDi among D. citri in populations spanning eleven countries and two U.S. territories. Six Wolbachia genes, wsp, coxA, fbpA, ftsZ, gatB, and hcpA, were sequenced and compared across samples. Two prevalent wDi strains were identified across the samples, and screening of clone libraries revealed possible coinfection of wDi strains in specific populations. D. citri mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene (mtCOI) were more divergent between D. citri populations that were infected with different wDi strains or had different infection statuses (single infection vs. coinfect...
