  1. Replication and pathogenesis of white sturgeon iridovirus (WSIV) in experimentally infected white sturgeon Acipenser transmontanus juveniles...

    Diseases of Aquatic Organisms 32(3):173 (1998) PMID 9676244

    Characteristics of the in vitro propagation of the white sturgeon iridovirus (WSIV) were examined in 6 sturgeon cell lines. One new cell line originating from gonadal tissues (WSGO) produced up to 12-fold more WSIV [approximately 22 TCID50 (50% tissue culture infective dose) cell-1], than that of a...
  2. Mechanoreceptors in insects: Johnston's organ in Nezara viridula (L) (Pentatomidae, Heteroptera).

    Pfluegers Archiv/European Journal of Physiology 431(6 Suppl 2):R281 (1996) PMID 8739374

    Behavioural observations of Nezara viridula suggested that the antennae could be involved in detecting the substrate vibrations important in intraspecific communication of these insects. Therefore the vibrosensitive properties of Johnston's organ, a mechanoreceptor sensitive to the movements of the...
  3. Genetic Variability and Robustness of Host Odor Preference in Drosophila melanogaster

    Current Biology 18(18):6 (2008) PMID 18804372

    We have characterized repeatable variation in olfactory preference between five classical D. melanogaster wild-type strains toward a large array of natural host odors and synthetic compounds. By recording the rate of attraction over up to 24 hr, we could compare stimuli varying in attractiveness and...
  4. The Chievitz juxtaparotid organ.

    Il Giornale di chirurgia 20(5):213 (1999) PMID 10380360

    The Chievitz juxtaparotid organ represents a macroscopic longitudinal formation, which is developed from oral cavity ectoderm in its lateral wall. As to its function, the organ probably represents a mechanosensor with different qualities of perception. The information coming from its sensors takes p...
  5. [The palpal receptor organ of gamasid mites (Mesostigmata: Gamasina)].

    Parazitologiya 32(3):258 (1998) PMID 9702801

    Three types of sensilla were distinguished during scanning electron microscope investigations of the palpal sensory organ, one of the main organs in food suitability detection, in 8 species of mites belonging to the genera Gamasellus, Macrocheles, Euryparasitus, Eulaelaps, Myonyssus, Raillietia, Spi...
  6. Mi-2 chromatin remodeling factor functions in sensory organ development through proneural gene repression in Drosophila.

    Development Growth & Differentiation 48(7):411 (2006) PMID 16961588

    We found that rare escapers develop into adult flies showing an extra bristle phenotype. The dMi-2 enhanced the phenotype of ac(Hw49c), which is a dominant gain-of-function allele of achaete (ac) and produces extra bristles. Consistent with these observations, the ac-expressing proneural clusters we...
  7. Electroantennographic resolution of pulsed pheromone plumes in two species of moths with bipectinate antennae.

    Chemical Senses 30(9):771 (2005) PMID 16267163

    Trains of 20-ms-duration pulses of pheromone were delivered at rates of 1-33 Hz to antennal preparations of males of Bombyx mori and Lymantria dispar, two moth species with bipectinate antennae. Resolution of rapidly pulsed plumes of pheromone was not compromised by a complex antennal morphology or...
  8. Carbon-dioxide sensing structures in terrestrial arthropods.

    Microscopy Research and Technique 47(6):416 (1999) PMID 10607381

    Sensory structures that detect atmospheric carbon dioxide have been identified and described to the subcellular level in adults of Lepidoptera, Diptera, Hymenoptera, Isoptera, Chilopoda, and Ixodidae, as well as in lepidopteran larvae. The structures are usually composed of clusters of wall-pore typ...
  9. Introduction to insect sensory organs as a model system in sensory physiology and developmental biology.

    Microscopy Research and Technique 39(6):467 (1997) PMID 9438247

  10. Load signals assist the generation of movement-dependent reflex reversal in the femur-tibia joint of stick insects.

    Journal of Neurophysiology 96(6):3532 (2006) PMID 16956989

    We investigate how sensory signals from movement and load sensors interact in controlling the motor output of the stick insect femur-tibia (FT) joint. In stick insects, flexion signals from the femoral chordotonal organ (fCO) at the FT joint and load signals from the femoral campaniform sensilla (fC...
