Abstract Galectins are a family of β-galactoside binding proteins, and insect galectins play a role in immune responses and may also affect Cry toxin activity. In this study, we aimed to further understand the function and molecular mechanism of Aedes aegypti galectin-6 in modulation of Cry11Aa toxicity. A. aegypti galectin-6 was cloned, and the recombinant galectin-6 was expressed and purified. Bioassays indicated that galectin-6 could reduce the toxicity of Cry11Aa, protecting A. aegypti larva...

Abstract Acrobasis advenella (Zinck.) is the most dangerous pest of black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa [Michx.] Elliot). The aim of this study was to investigate the insecticidal activity of an essential oil from Tanacetum vulgare (L.) and its main components such as thujone, camphor, and borneol against A.advenella larvae. In addition, the effects of the oil and its main ingredients on the activity of catalase (CAT), polyphenol oxidase (PPO), peroxidase (POX), and α- and β-glucosidases, which...

Abstract RNA interference (RNAi) efficiency varies among insects. RNAi is highly efficient and systemic in coleopteran insects but quite variable and inefficient in lepidopteran insects. Degradation of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) by double-stranded ribonucleases (dsRNases) is thought to contribute to the variability in RNAi efficiency observed among insects. One or two dsRNases involved in dsRNA digestion have been identified in a few insects. To understand the contribution of dsRNases to reduce...
Abstract It is widely accepted that sensitivity towards pesticides varies significantly between species. Much less is known about the potential differences in pesticide sensitivity and its biological mechanism throughout the lifecycle of a single species. In the present study we used three life-stages (larvae, pupae and adult) of the holometabolous insect Tenebrio molitor to investigate: i) Life-stage specific differences in sensitivity towards the pyrethroid insecticide α-cypermethrin after top...
Abstract Monochoria vaginalis and M. korsakowii are allotetraploid noxious weeds in rice cultivation. Occurrences of resistance to acetolactate synthase (ALS)-inhibiting herbicides have been reported in these weeds in Japan since the 1990s. The existence of multiple copies of ALS genes in both species has hindered and complicated the detailed study of molecular mechanisms in them. To determine the copy number and full-length of ALS genes in both species, we first amplified partial sequences of A...
Abstract In this work, a total of 36 novel 5-(nicotinamido)-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acid derivatives were designed and synthesized successfully by introducing a carboxyl group based on the N-(1-(4-chlorophenyl)-4-cyano-1H-pyrazol-5-yl)-6-methoxynicotinamide. Among them, the growth inhibition assays on agar plates showed that compound 5IV-d(5-(2-chloronicotinamido)-1-(p-tolyl)-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxylic acid) exhibited the significant antifungal activity against four important fruit and m...
Abstract Tetramethylthiuram disulfide, commonly known as thiram, is an organosulfur compound which is used as a bactericide, fungicide and ectoparasiticide to prevent disease in seeds and crops. Being a fungicide there is a high probability of human occupational exposure to thiram and also via consumption of contaminated food. In this work, the cytotoxicity of thiram was studied under in vitro conditions using human erythrocytes as the cellular model. Erythrocytes were incubated with different c...
Abstract Blue mold caused by Penicillium italicum is an important postharvest disease of citrus fruit. The antifungal activity of a flavonone pinocembroside compound obtained from the fruit of Ficus hirta Vahl., was evaluated against P. italicum. Pinocembroside showed antifungal activity against in vitro mycelial growth of P. italicum, with the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) of 200 and 800 mg/L, respectively. The blue mold development on ‘Newhal...
