Altered Constitutive and Inducible Phloem Monoterpenes Following Natural Defoliation of Jack Pine: Implications to Host Mediated Interguild ...
Aspen defense chemicals influence midgut bacterial community composition of gypsy moth.
We used gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.), and differing trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) genotypes that vary in chemical defenses, to assess the influence of foliar chemistry on bacterial communities of larval midguts. We evaluated the bacterial community composition of foliage, and of m...
Attractiveness of harlequin bug, Murgantia histrionica, aggregation pheromone: field response to isomers, ratios, and dose.
A two-component pheromone, (3S,6S,7R,10S)- and (3S,6S,7R,10R)-10,11-epoxy-1-bisabolen-3-ol (murgantiol), present in emissions from adult male harlequin bugs, Murgantia histrionica, is most attractive in field bioassays to adults and nymphs in the naturally occurring ratio of ca. 1.4:1. Each of the t...
Jasmonate-triggered plant immunity.
The plant hormone jasmonate (JA) exerts direct control over the production of chemical defense compounds that confer resistance to a remarkable spectrum of plant-associated organisms, ranging from microbial pathogens to vertebrate herbivores. The underlying mechanism of JA-triggered immunity (JATI)...
Chemical Ecology without borders.
Identification of the major sex pheromone component of the scale insect, Aulacaspis murrayae Takahashi.
(R)-Solanone was identified as a female-specific compound from aerations of virgin females of the scale insect, Aulacaspis murrayae Takahashi. The stereochemistry of the insect-produced solanone was confirmed to be (R) by comparison with synthesized racemic and chiral standards on a chiral stationar...
Chemical ecology in the post genomics era.
Mixture-amount design and response surface modeling to assess the effects of flavonoids and phenolic acids on developmental performance of A...
We used mixture-amount experimental design and response surface modeling to study the effects of a variety of phenolic compounds on the development and survival of Mexican fruit fly (Anastrepha ludens [Loew]), a notorious polyphagous pest of fruit crops that is likely to expand its distribution rang...
Transgenic upregulation of the condensed tannin pathway in poplar leads to a dramatic shift in leaf palatability for two tree-feeding Lepido...
We conclude that for these two lepidopteran species, condensed tannin levels are unlikely to be a major determinant of caterpillar food preference or performance. However, our experiments show that overexpression of a single regulatory gene in transgenic aspen can have a significant impact on herbiv...
