2008 journal article

Expression of a harpin-encoding gene in rice confers durable nonspecific resistance to Magnaporthe grisea

PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY JOURNAL, 6(1), 73–81.

author keywords: appressorium; defence-related genes; durable nonspecific resistance; hrf1 gene; Magnaporthe grisea; rice
MeSH headings : Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins / genetics; Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins / metabolism; Gene Expression; Host-Pathogen Interactions; Magnaporthe / immunology; Magnaporthe / physiology; Oryza / genetics; Oryza / immunology; Oryza / microbiology; Plant Diseases; Plant Leaves / metabolism; Silicon / metabolism; Xanthomonas / genetics
TL;DR: It is shown that the expression of a harpin-encoding gene (hrf1) confers nonspecific resistance in rice to the blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea, and it is suggested that harpins may offer new opportunities for generating broad-spectrum disease resistance in other crops. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 review

Wood-feeding cockroaches as models for termite evolution (Insecta : Dictyoptera): Cryptocercus vs. Parasphaeria boleiriana

[Review of ]. MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS AND EVOLUTION, 46(3), 809–817.

By: K. Klass*, C. Nalepa n & N. Lo*

author keywords: Cryptocercus; Isoptera; Protozoa; eusociality; biparental care; xylophagy; symbionts
MeSH headings : Animals; Biological Evolution; Cockroaches / anatomy & histology; Cockroaches / classification; Cockroaches / growth & development; Isoptera / anatomy & histology; Isoptera / classification; Isoptera / growth & development; Phylogeny
TL;DR: It is argued against any reasonable usage of P. boleiriana as a model for the early evolution of Isoptera or even of the clade Cryptocercus+Isoptera, as some other Blaberidae appear more useful as model-taxa-by-homoplasy for theEarly evolution of the CryptocERCus+ isoptera clade, as their brooding behavior is more elaborate.

2008 journal article

The fine structure of colleterial glands in two cockroaches and three termites, including a detailed study of Cryptocercus punctulatus (Blattaria, Cryptocercidae) and Mastotermes darwiniensis (Isoptera, Mastotermitidae)

ARTHROPOD STRUCTURE & DEVELOPMENT, 37(1), 55–66.

2008 journal article

Queen acceptance and the complexity of nestmate discrimination in the Argentine ant

BEHAVIORAL ECOLOGY AND SOCIOBIOLOGY, 62(4), 537–548.

By: G. Vasquez n & J. Silverman n

author keywords: Argentine ant; Linepithema humile; nestmate recognition; aggression; genetic similarity; non-nestmate adoption
TL;DR: A role for genetically based cues in L. humile colony queen number is indicated and an effect of resident queens on worker conspecific acceptance thresholds is suggested, suggesting subtle discrimination capability seems to be influenced by the social context, as demonstrated by more frequent recognition errors in queenless colonies.

2008 review

The movement of proteins across the insect and tick digestive system

[Review of ]. JOURNAL OF INSECT PHYSIOLOGY, 54(2), 319–332.

author keywords: digestive system; protein movement; protein insecticide
MeSH headings : Animals; Digestive System / metabolism; Insect Proteins / metabolism; Insecta / metabolism; Protein Transport; Ticks / metabolism
TL;DR: Protein movement was observed for both normal dietary and xenobiotic proteins, which suggest that the mechanism for transfer is not substrate specific and could be highly significant to the future of protein and nucleic acid-based insecticide development as well as traditional chemical insecticidal technologies.
