Characterization of Long Non-Coding RNAs in the Bollworm, Helicoverpa zea, and Their Possible Role in Cry1Ac-Resistance

INSECTS, 13(1).

By: R. Lawrie n, R. Mitchell n, J. Deguenon n, L. Ponnusamy n, D. Reisig*, A. Pozo-Valdivia, R. Kurtz*, R. Roe n

author keywords: long non-coding RNAs; Helicoverpa zea; Bt-resistance; Cry1Ac resistance; RNA-seq; lncRNA; bollworms; gene regulation
TL;DR: Characterization of non-coding genetic mechanisms in Helicoverpa zea will improve the understanding of the genomic evolution of insect resistance, improve the identification of specific regulators of coding genes in general, and is the first step for potentially targeting these regulators for pest control and resistance management.

Mechanical Acaricides Active against the Blacklegged Tick, Ixodes scapularis

INSECTS, 13(8).

By: E. Richardson n, L. Ponnusamy n & R. Roe n

TL;DR: It is discovered that volcanic glass, ImergardTM WP, and other industrial minerals such as Celite 610 were efficacious mechanical insecticides against mosquitoes, filth flies, and agricultural pests. (via Semantic Scholar)

Bacterial Microbiota of Field-Collected Helicoverpa zea (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Transgenic Bt and Non-Bt Cotton


By: J. Deguenon n, A. Dhammi n, L. Ponnusamy n, N. Travanty n, G. Cave n, R. Lawrie n, D. Mott n, D. Reisig n, R. Kurtz*, R. Roe n

author keywords: Helicoverpa zea; cotton; Bt; resistance; tolerance; microbiota
TL;DR: It is found that WideStrike samples had a higher bacterial density and diversity per larva than insects collected from non-Bt cotton over two field seasons, and argues for more research to better understand the role of cotton–bollworm–bacteria interactions and the impact on Bt toxin caterpillar susceptibility.

author keywords: mosquito; bite-proof garment; model; textile; non-insecticidal; physical barrier
TL;DR: A mathematical model for fabric barriers that resist bites from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes based on textile physical structure and no insecticides is reported, derived from mosquito morphometrics and analysis of mosquito biting behavior. (via Semantic Scholar)

Tick Ecdysteroid Hormone, Global Microbiota/Rickettsia Signaling in the Ovary versus Carcass during Vitellogenesis in Part-Fed (Virgin) American Dog Ticks, Dermacentor variabilis


author keywords: Dermacentor variabilis; ecdysteroid; Rickettsia sp; Francisella sp; qPCR; microbiota
TL;DR: Injections of physiological levels of the tick hormone, 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E), into part-fed (virgin) adult females of the American dog tick, Dermacentor variabilis, attached to the host caused a reduction in density of Rickettsia montanensis in the carcass and an increase in the ovaries compared to buffer-injected controls.
