Hyphantria cunea is a destructive forest pest. To utilise H. cunea nucleopolyhedrovirus (HcNPV) for biological control, understanding insect-virus interactions is essential.

A new beet armyworm (Spodoptera exigua) multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus SeMNPV-QD was isolated from dead larvae in the field in Qingdao, Shandong, China. The virus has a polyhedron size of 1.39 ± 0.28 ...
Fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea Drury (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) is extremely adaptable and highly invasive in China as a defoliator of ornamental and forest trees. Both voltinism and diapause strategies...
In group I nucleopolyhedrovirus such as Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV), the biological functions of F-like protein (Bm14) still remain elusive. Here, we found that the deletion of Bm14 reduc...
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a serious neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired or abnormal social interaction and communication and by restricted and repetitive behaviour. ASD is hi...
Aflatoxin B (AFB) is the major mycotoxin that contaminates aquafeeds and regarded as a causative agent in illnesses and the mortality of aquacultural species. However, the effects of AFB on developing...
24 healthy volunteers will be immunized with three times 50 L3 larvae or placebo followed by treatment with albendazol and subsequently challenged with twice 50 L3 larvae.
Twenty-four healthy hookworm-naive volunteers will be exposed to 50 L3 Necator americanus larvae for a maximum of three times.
Transcriptomics is the study of how RNA is expressed under specific conditions. Transcriptomic analyses of lesional skin biopsies can be a useful way to track how a patient responds to a d...
Four healthy hookworm-naive volunteers will be exposed to 50 L3 Necator americanus larvae once and will retain infection for up to 2 years.
Discovery of differences in the host response in patients with systemic inflammation and sepsis, and identification of novel, specific markers by using a longitudinal clinico-transcriptomi...
Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.
A genus of the family BACULOVIRIDAE, subfamily Eubaculovirinae, characterized by the formation of crystalline, polyhedral occlusion bodies in the host cell nucleus. The type species is Autographa californica nucleopolyhedrovirus.
Infestation with nematode worms of the genus TRICHOSTRONGYLUS. Man and animals become infected by swallowing larvae, usually with contaminated food or drink, although the larvae may penetrate human skin.
A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
The interactions of particles responsible for their scattering and transformations (decays and reactions). Because of interactions, an isolated particle may decay into other particles. Two particles passing near each other may transform, perhaps into the same particles but with changed momenta (elastic scattering) or into other particles (inelastic scattering). Interactions fall into three groups: strong, electromagnetic, and weak. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed)
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
