Summary of "Effects of cold storage on quality of Chrysopa pallens and recovery of fecundity by insulin."

The green lacewing, Chrysopa pallens Wesmael, is one of the most beneficial and prolific insects found in many horticultural and agricultural cropping system. Here, the effects of low temperature storage on quality of C. pallens were investigated by storing cocoons at 10 °C for different days. Results revealed, after removal from cold storage, emergence rate declined gradually as storage duration increased. After storage of 20 days, the emergence rate in cold-stored group is about 62.8% of that in unstored group. After eclosion, lifetime fecundity, preemergence period, oviposition period and longevity of adults in cold-stored group showed curves similar to emergence rate. However, preoviposition period and egg hatchability were not significantly affected by cold. After being stored for 20 days, the total fecundity of females emerging from cold-stored cocoons was about 64.5% of that of females emerging from unstored cocoons. Six days post emergence, females in cold-stored group showed apparent arrest of ovarian development and significant reductions of protease, lipase and trehalase activities when compared to unstored controls. When bovine insulin was exogenously used, the females emerging from cold-stored cocoons dramatically restored ovarian development and reproductive capacity. These results suggested that C. pallens pupae are suitable for cold storage and insulin hormone can be used as reproduction stimuli in this predatory species after cold storage.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A histamine H1 antagonist used as an antiemetic, antitussive, for dermatoses and pruritus, for hypersensitivity reactions, as a hypnotic, an antiparkinson, and as an ingredient in common cold preparations. It has some undesired antimuscarinic and sedative effects.

An alkaloid derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.

Recovery from mental disorders and/or substance abuse. The process of change in which individuals improve their MENTAL HEALTH and wellness, live a self-directed life, and work to achieve their full potential.

A constellation of responses that occur when an organism is exposed to excessive cold. In humans, a fall in skin temperature triggers gasping, hypertension, and hyperventilation.

A condition characterized by the recurrence of HEMOGLOBINURIA caused by intravascular HEMOLYSIS. In cases occurring upon cold exposure (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), usually after infections, there is a circulating antibody which is also a cold hemolysin. In cases occurring during or after sleep (paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria), the clonal hematopoietic stem cells exhibit a global deficiency of cell membrane proteins.
