Conspecific pheromone extracts enhance entomopathogenic infectivity

, two aspects of EPN biology that contribute significantly to biocontrol efficacy include nematode dispersal and infectivity. Prior research indicates that certain substances within EPN-infected hosts enhance nematode dispersal (Shapiro and Glazer, 1996). Furthermore, EPN-infected host substances enhance nematode infectivity, i.e. the propensity to invade the host (Shapiro and Lewis, 1999). Dispersal-inducing compounds in steinernematid nematodes were later described as specific ascaroside

Survival and Infectivity of Entomopathogenic Nematodes Formulated in Sodium Alginate Beads

An alternative control method to the use of chemical insecticides against soil dwelling insect pests is the application of entomopathogenic nematodes formulated in alginate beads for enhanced shelf life. The aim was to compare the benefit on nematode survival and infectivity of: (i) pre-conditioning of juveniles, and (ii) coating of alginate beads. The nematodes Steinernema glaseri, Steinernema carpocapsae, and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora were reproduced in last instar larvae of the wax moth

The impact of chemical nematicides on entomopathogenic nematode survival and infectivity

EPN species like H. bacteriophora and S. carpocapsae (Browning et al., 2004; Glazer et al., 1997; Hara and Kaya, 1982; Rovesti et al., 1988, Rovesti and Deseo, 1990). These studies mostly aimed to assess the compatibility of these compounds with EPNs based on the survival and infectivity of IJs. There, however, is a need to expand on the diversity of nematicides that are tested for impact on EPN, and their effects on the penetration efficacy and reproductive capacity; chemotaxis and longer-term

Similarly, egg viability from dissolved egg masses in 1.0% NaOCl has been described as significantly lower (12%) when compared with viability from egg masses in water (58%) (Di Vito et al., 1986). Afterward, a comparison between stirring and grinding of 1.5 g of tomato and soybean roots (2.5-cm pieces) in NaOCl

Biological characterization of the entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema innovationi: a South African isolate

As a staple food, its consumption exceeds 100 kg per capita annually in most of the Asian countries (Seck et al., 2012). Several biotic and abiotic constraints limit the yield and quality of rice. Among biotic constraints, plant-parasitic nematodes are an emerging threat to rice production. Root-knot nematodes (RKNs

bacterial identification, in recent years laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) has emerged as a useful technique for microbial identification. It has already been used in different investigations for the identification of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Although the technique has the advantage of being fast and sensitive, its main disadvantage is the high initial cost of equipment and reagents (Singhal et al. 2015). Although the main phenotypic

Improved K-means Algorithm Based on optimizing Initial Cluster Centers and Its Application

Data mining is a process of data grouping or partitioning from the large and complex data, and the clustering analysis is an important research field in data mining. The K-means algorithm is considered to be the most important unsupervised machine learning method in clustering, which can divide all the data into k subclasses that are very different from each other. By constantly iterating, the distance between each data object and the center of its subclass is minimized. Because K-means

The Supreme Court is placed at the top of the US judicial system. This Court can hear all civil cases between states and cases between a state and all federal institutions. Also, it can review all decisions made by lower courts. As such, it is one of the three fundamental branches of the US government.

The Resurgence of Measles Infection and its Associated Complications in Early Childhood at a Tertiary Care Hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan

Introduction Measles is a highly contagious systemic viral infection caused by the Measles virus (MeV). This virus belongs to the Paramyxoviridae family, has ssRNA genome and a lipid envelope. It spreads through respiratory droplets and also through conjunctiva contact (Khan et al. 2013). Its diagnostic criteria include high-grade fever (38°C lasting for > 3 days), generalized maculopapular rashes, cough, coryza, and conjunctivitis (WHO 2018a). Measles viral infection is the leading cause of

The Composition of Fungal Communities in the Rumen of Gayals (Bos frontalis), Yaks (Bos grunniens), and Yunnan and Tibetan Yellow Cattle (Bos taurs)

. 2010). ITS sequencing is used to study the diversity of the community of rumen AF and provide genetic information for the classification and identification of fungi (Liggenstoffer et al. 2010; Koljalg et al. 2013). The free-range gayals are mainly distributed in the Nujiang River and Dulong River areas of Yunnan Province, China. Yaks live exclusively on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, China (An et al. 2005) and are well adapted to harsh environmental conditions. Yunnan yellow cattle and Tibetan yellow

On the identity of Eucephalobus oxyuroides (de Man, 1876) Steiner, 1936 (Rhabditida, Cephalobidae), with an updated taxonomy of the genus and notes about its phylogeny

Cephalobus oxyuroides was described by de Man (1876) from the Netherlands, and named according to its apparent resemblance with Cephalobus oxyuris (Bütschli, 1873). The latter was regarded by Thorne (1937) as a junior synonym of Panagrolaimus rigidus (Schneider, 1866) Thorne, 1937. Its original description was based on five specimens, three females and two males, which were characterized by their acute lips, conoid-elongate female tail, and male bearing a long mucro at tail end and spicules

THE RHIZOSPHERE MICROBIOME AND ITS BENEFICIAL EFFECTS ON PLANTS – CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND PERSPECTIVES

. Sequencing variable regions of this gene enables taxonomic identification at the generic or even at the species level. To identify eukaryotic microbes, such as fungi, the 18S rRNA gene as well as the ITS region are used. Metagenomic sequencing technology has become a widely used molecular biology tool which allows for identifying from thousands to millions of sequences in one environmental sample, revealing the wealth of even rare species of microorganisms [49, 56, 60, 90, 98].

., 2007). Summarizing, even the neural substrate of impaired humor processing in schizophrenia was already pre-determined by pieces of neuroimaging evidence, the findings regarding its relationship with the severity of specific psychopathology symptoms or cognitive deficits remain inconsistent and seemingly far away to be fully understood. In this study, we address this issue by integrating multiple neuroimaging methods (fMRI and EEG-directed transfer function; EEG-DTF) and implementing the three
