  1. Evidence of contact pheromone use in mating behavior of the raspberry weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae).

    Environmental Entomology 38(1):192 (2009) PMID 19791614

    We studied the possible use of contact pheromones in the mating behavior of the weevil Aegorhinus superciliosus, a native species of Chile. Males mounted females only after antennal contact with the female's cuticle, and only 33% of the males attempted to mate with dead females washed with solvent....
  2. Armigeres subalbatus (Diptera: Culicidae) prophenoloxidase III is required for mosquito cuticle formation: ultrastructural study on dsRNA-kn...

    Journal of Medical Entomology 47(4):495 (2010) PMID 20695265

    We previously suggested that Armigeres subalbatus (Coquillett) prophenoloxidase III (As-pro-PO III) might be associated with morphogenesis of larvae and pupae. Because PO and its activation system are present in the insect cuticle, and cuticle formation is a major event during pupal morphogenesis, w...
  3. Early post-larval development of the endoparasitic platyhelminth Mesocestoides corti: trypsin provokes reversible tegumental damage leading ...

    Journal Of Cellular Physiology 205(2):211 (2005) PMID 15887242

    We conclude that trypsin-induced tetrathyridia development to adult worm is FBS-dependent and that the effect of serum factors is dependent upon a previous trypsin-induced reversible damage to the larva tegument. In dividing and non-dividing tetrathyridia, proliferative activity of cells is mainly l...
  4. RNAi-induced phenotypes suggest a novel role for a chemosensory protein CSP5 in the development of embryonic integument in the honeybee (Api...

    Development Genes and Evolution 217(3):189 (2007) PMID 17216269

    We used a combination of genome annotation, transcriptional profiling and RNA interference to unravel the functional significance of a honeybee gene (csp5) belonging to the CSP family. We show that csp5 expression resembles the maternal-zygotic pattern that is characterized by the initiation of tran...
  5. Effects of epizootic shell disease in American lobster Homarus americanus determined using a quantitative disease index.

    Diseases of Aquatic Organisms 88(1):25 (2009) PMID 20183962

    The incidence of epizootic shell disease in American lobster Homarus americanus has increased in southern New England, U.S.A., in the last decade, but few longitudinal studies have followed the disease progress in individual lobsters or demonstrated direct effects on mortality or growth. Diseased lo...
  6. [The enzymatic activity of fungi strains isolated from the skin and skin appendages of humans returning from the tropics].

    Wiadomosci Parazytologiczne 47(4):729 (2001) PMID 16886418

    The aim of the work was to assess the enzymatic activity of 11 fungi strains isolated from the skin of 10 Lódź residents who had visited the tropics over 1998-1999. The strains were cultured by Jeske and Lupa of The Voivodeship Outpatient Clinic of Infectious, Parasitic and Tropical Diseases and F...
