Samplings of Millipedes in Japan and Scarab Beetles in Hong Kong result in five new Species of Pristionchus (Nematoda: Diplogastridae)

The authors describe five new species of Pristionchus from Japan and Hongkong. Scarab beetle samplings in Hongkong identified P. hongkongensis sp. n. and P. neolucani sp. n., representing the first beetle-associated Pristionchus species from China. Surprisingly, samplings of millipedes in Japan revealed a previously unknown association of Pristionchus nematodes with these arthropods. Specifically, the authors found three previously known Pristionchus species, P. arcanus, P. entomophagus, and P

P. paulseni sp. n. was isolated from Taiwan and represents the gonochoristic sister species of P. fissidentatus. This species exhibits a mouth dimorphism found in many Pristionchus species, suggesting that mouth-form plasticity is an ancestral character in the genus. Most importantly, P. paulseni sp. n. and P. fissidentatus form a new species group of the genus that represents the

zones (PB63S, PBo6S, PxS, P234, P112 – Poland; PB7’96, PB8 – Japan, PUSAS – the USA) of P. ostreatus were analyzed. All strains were shared by the Department of Fruit, Vegetable and Mushroom Technology at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin. According to our knowledge, the strains analyzed were never cultivated on media containing antibiotics. Before experiments the fungal strains were cultivated for seven days in 28°C on Petri dishes with onion medium (onion extract 1000 ml (150 g of chopped

Two nematodes (Nematoda: Diplogastridae, Rhabditidae) from the invasive millipede Chamberlinius hualienensis Wang, 1956 (Diplopoda, Paradoxosomatidae) on Hachijojima Island in Japan

Millipedes may cause unexpected damage when they are introduced to new locations, becoming invaders that leave behind their old parasites and predators. Therefore, it was interesting to find numerous rhabditid nematodes within the gut of the invasive phytophagous millipede Chamberlinius hualienensis Wang, 1956 (Diplopoda, Paradoxosomatidae) from Hachijojima (Japan) in November, 2014. This millipede originated in Taiwan but was discovered in Japan in 1986. The nematodes were identified as

High Mitochondrial Genome Diversity and Intricate Population Structure of Bursaphelenchus xylophilus in Kyushu, Japan

Mitogenomic diversity and genetic population structure of the pinewood nematode (PWN) Bursaphelenchus xylophilus inhabiting Kyushu, Japan were analyzed. A method for performing long PCR using single nematodes and sequencing nematode mitochondrial genomes individually is presented here. About 8 kb (∼55%) of the complete mitochondrial genome was successfully obtained from 285 individuals collected from 12 populations. The 158 single nucleotide polymorphisms detected corresponded to 30 haplotypes

Several fruiting bodies of T. orientalis on a dead log were collected from Uji, Kyoto, Japan in July 2020. The wood substrate could not be identified because the bark was lost and the wood was partially decomposed. The fruiting bodies were enclosed in a plastic bag, transported to the

Description of Xiphinema parachambersi sp. n. (Nematoda: Longidoridae) from Imported Ornamental Plants in Japan with a Key to Xiphinema Species in Group 1

Xiphinema parachambersi n. sp. recovered in Ningbo, China, from the rhizosphere of ornamental plants (Gardenia jasminoides and Euonymus hamiltonianus) imported from Japan is described. The new species is characterized by a long female body 1,830 to 2,109 μm long, odontostyle 105 to 116 μm long, reproductive system mono-opisthodelphic, vulva located anteriorly at 25.2 to 27.7% of total body, long ovary 119 to 292 μm with simple uterus and Z-organ absent, female tail elongated conoid with a

Nematicidal activity of fipronil against Pratylenchus zeae in sugarcane

Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) is an economically important crop in subtropical and tropical regions. Okinawa is located in the subtropical region in Japan and half of its farmland acreage is used for sugarcane cultivation. Many remote islands in Okinawa are economically reliant on sugarcane-related industries. Plant-parasitic nematodes are one of the major yield limiting factors of sugarcane production (Cadet and Spaull, 2005). Previous studies revealed that 20 to 30% sugarcane yield

Consequently, the genome for a Halicephalobus species may reveal illuminating parallelisms in how asexuality influences genomic evolution. Here, we have sequenced the genome of a Halicephalobus strain (NKZ332) isolated from termites in Japan. Because of the paucity of reliable diagnostic morphology for the genus (Anderson et al., 1998), combined with the inability to test species boundaries through crossing experiments, assignment of a

Developing a real-time PCR diagnostic method for a potential threat to chrysanthemum, Paratylenchus dianthus

One of the most popular flowers in Japan is chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat.), that is used on ornamental purposes in many occasions especially for new year’s and religious ceremonies, and even recognized as an edible plant in Japan. The total production of chrysanthemum in Japan in 2016 was 68bn yen (ca. $620m), which consisted one-third of the total cut-flower production and was the number one product of all the cut-flower categories (Statistics by the Japanese Ministry of

Differences in ABO antibody levels among blood donors: a comparison between past and present Japanese,Laotian,and Thai populations

Passively transfused blood group antibodies cause clinical problems. High titers of anti-A and anti-B seem to be one reason for hemolytic transfusion reactions and for ABO HDN. In Japan,anti-A and anti-B titers notably decreased in the 15 years between 1986 and 2001. At present,titers of more than 100,as measured using the saline method,are rare. Differences in the level of anti-A and anti-B among ethnic populations have been reported; these differences were found to be the result of

Japan has taken various measures to deal with accidents after the nuclear accident of Fukushima. Strengthening the reliability of the instrumentation system is also included in the counterstrategies. Therefore, this paper presents

A modified PCR-RFLP genotyping method demonstrates the presence of the HPA-4b platelet alloantigen in a North American Indian population

The diallelic HPA-4 (Pen/Yuk) platelet alloantigen system is polymorphic in Asian populations and accounts for the majority of cases of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia in Japan. At the molecular level, the HPA-4a/4b dimorphism is associated with an arginine/ glutamine substitution at amino acid 143 of the gene encoding platelet glycoprotein IIIa. Unlike the five other major diallelic human platelet antigen systems (HPA-1, -2, -3, -5, and -6), the nucleotide substitution corresponding to

Here, we describe in a series of three publications the results of our sampling efforts in Taiwan, Japan, and Hongkong in 2016 and 2017. We describe a total of nine new species that cover different phylogenetic species-complexes of the Pristionchus genus.

Second, it prevents people from understanding each gender and makes romantic relationships more complex. Third, interactions of both genders enhance the social capital of women. Based on fieldwork in a high school classroom in Japan, the present study examines differences in the degree of gender homophily among various social network layers of communication media, considering, as mentioned above
