Volatile organic compounds released by the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana. (1/123)

The composition of volatile organic compounds (VOC) released by the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana (Hyphomycete: Deuteromycotina) utilizing two different carbon sources was investigated. Analyses were performed by solid-phase microextraction (SPME) coupled to capillary gas chromatography (CGC) and CGC-mass spectrometry (MS). Major components in glucose-grown cultures were diisopropyl naphthalenes, ethanol, and sesquiterpenes. Alkane-grown fungal VOC switched to a fingerprint with prevalence of n-decane. This is the first report on the volatiles released by entomopathogenic fungi.  (+info)

A toll receptor and a cytokine, Toll5A and Spz1C, are involved in toll antifungal immune signaling in the mosquito Aedes aegypti. (2/123)

The fungal-specific immune response in the mosquito Aedes aegypti involves the Toll immune pathway transduced through REL1, a homologue of the NF-kappaB transcription factor Drosophila Dorsal. The Toll receptor and its ligand, Spatzle (Spz), link extracellular immune signals to the Toll intracellular transduction pathway. Five homologues to the Drosophila Toll (Toll1) receptor (Toll1A, Toll1B, Toll5A, Toll5B, and Toll4) and three homologues to the Drosophila cytokine Spatzle (Spz1A, 1B, and 1C) were identified from genomic and cDNA sequence data bases. Toll1A, Toll5A, Toll5B, and Spz1A were specifically induced in the mosquito fat body following fungal challenge. This transcriptional up-regulation was mediated by REL1. Spz1C was constitutively expressed in the mosquito fat body, whereas Spz1B and Toll4 were primarily expressed in ovarian tissues of female mosquitoes. The transcripts of Toll1B were only detected in early stages of mosquito embryos. RNA interference knock down of Toll5A and Spz1C resulted in two phenotypes of Aedes Toll/REL1 pathway deficiency: decreased induction of Aedes Serpin-27A following fungal challenge and increased susceptibility to the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana. These data suggest that Toll5A and Spz1C function as cytokine receptor systems specific to the Toll receptor-mediated immune response following fungal challenge in the mosquito fat body.  (+info)

Increased insect virulence in Beauveria bassiana strains overexpressing an engineered chitinase. (3/123)

Entomopathogenic fungi are currently being used for the control of several insect pests as alternatives or supplements to chemical insecticides. Improvements in virulence and speed of kill can be achieved by understanding the mechanisms of fungal pathogenesis and genetically modifying targeted genes, thus improving the commercial efficacy of these biocontrol agents. Entomopathogenic fungi, such as Beauveria bassiana, penetrate the insect cuticle utilizing a plethora of hydrolytic enzymes, including chitinases, which are important virulence factors. Two chitinases (Bbchit1 and Bbchit2) have previously been characterized in B. bassiana, neither of which possesses chitin-binding domains. Here we report the construction and characterization of several B. bassiana hybrid chitinases where the chitinase Bbchit1 was fused to chitin-binding domains derived from plant, bacterial, or insect sources. A hybrid chitinase containing the chitin-binding domain (BmChBD) from the silkworm Bombyx mori chitinase fused to Bbchit1 showed the greatest ability to bind to chitin compared to other hybrid chitinases. This hybrid chitinase gene (Bbchit1-BmChBD) was then placed under the control of a fungal constitutive promoter (gpd-Bbchit1-BmChBD) and transformed into B. bassiana. Insect bioassays showed a 23% reduction in time to death in the transformant compared to the wild-type fungus. This transformant also showed greater virulence than another construct (gpd-Bbchit1) with the same constitutive promoter but lacking the chitin-binding domain. We utilized a strategy where genetic components of the host insect can be incorporated into the fungal pathogen in order to increase host cuticle penetration ability.  (+info)

Clues on the role of Beauveria bassiana catalases in alkane degradation events. (4/123)

Entomopathogenic fungi adapt to growth in a culture medium containing an insect-like hydrocarbon as the sole carbon source inducing the beta-oxidation pathway during the alkane degradation. The effect of two carbon sources on the catalase activity was studied in the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana. Catalase activity was detected both in the peroxisomal and cytosolic fraction. A significant increment in the specific activity of the peroxisomal fraction (12.6-fold) was observed when glucose was replaced by an insect-like hydrocarbon, whereas the specific activity in the cytosol diminished more than 1.2-fold in the same culture condition. After purification to homogeneity by gel filtration and strong anion exchange chromatography, an apparent molecular mass of 54.7 and 84.0 kDa per subunit were determined respectively for the peroxisomal and cytosolic catalase. The enzymes showed different biochemical and kinetic characteristics, but both were inhibited by 3-amino-1,2,4 triazole. Peroxisomal catalase was sensitive to pH, heat and high concentration of the hydrogen peroxide substrate. Inversely the cytosolic isoform exhibited a broad range of optimal pH (6.0-10.0), high thermostability (<55 C) and remained fully active at least up to 70 mM hydrogen peroxide. Measurement of catalase activity is a new approach for evaluating fungal ability to degrade hydrocarbons.  (+info)

Dual detection of fungal infections in Drosophila via recognition of glucans and sensing of virulence factors. (5/123)

The Drosophila immune system discriminates between various types of infections and activates appropriate signal transduction pathways to combat the invading microorganisms. The Toll pathway is required for the host response against fungal and most Gram-positive bacterial infections. The sensing of Gram-positive bacteria is mediated by the pattern recognition receptors PGRP-SA and GNBP1 that cooperate to detect the presence of infections in the host. Here, we report that GNBP3 is a pattern recognition receptor that is required for the detection of fungal cell wall components. Strikingly, we find that there is a second, parallel pathway acting jointly with GNBP3. The Drosophila Persephone protease activates the Toll pathway when proteolytically matured by the secreted fungal virulence factor PR1. Thus, the detection of fungal infections in Drosophila relies both on the recognition of invariant microbial patterns and on monitoring the effects of virulence factors on the host.  (+info)

Inbreeding and extreme outbreeding cause sex differences in immune defence and life history traits in Epirrita autumnata. (6/123)

Empirical studies in vertebrates support the hypothesis that inbreeding reduces resistance against parasites and pathogens. However, studies in insects have not found any evidence that inbreeding compromises immune defence. Here we tested whether one generation of brother-sister mating or extreme outbreeding (mating between two populations) have an effect on innate immunity and life history traits in the autumnal moth, Epirrita autumnata. We show that the effect of inbreeding on immune response differed between the sexes: whereas in females, inbreeding significantly reduced encapsulation response against nylon monofilament ability, it did not have a significant effect on male immune response. There were also differences in the correlation of the immune response with other traits: in females increased immune response was positively correlated with large size, whereas in males immune response increased with a reduction in development time. Immune response differed significantly among families in males but not in females, both for the inbreeding and extreme outbreeding experiments. In conjunction with the observed immune responses to inbreeding, these data suggest that in males genetic variation for immune response is largely additive or non-directional with respect to dominance, whereas in females variation is much reduced and consists of directional dominance variance. Further, we show that encapsulation response against nylon monofilament is associated with the resistance against real pathogens suggesting that this widely used method to measure the strength of immune defence in insects is also a biologically relevant method.  (+info)

Drosophila eiger mutants are sensitive to extracellular pathogens. (7/123)

We showed previously that eiger, the Drosophila tumor necrosis factor homolog, contributes to the pathology induced by infection with Salmonella typhimurium. We were curious whether eiger is always detrimental in the context of infection or if it plays a role in fighting some types of microbes. We challenged wild-type and eiger mutant flies with a collection of facultative intracellular and extracellular pathogens, including a fungus and Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The response of eiger mutants divided these microbes into two groups: eiger mutants are immunocompromised with respect to extracellular pathogens but show no change or reduced sensitivity to facultative intracellular pathogens. Hence, eiger helps fight infections but also can cause pathology. We propose that eiger activates the cellular immune response of the fly to aid clearance of extracellular pathogens. Intracellular pathogens, which can already defeat professional phagocytes, are unaffected by eiger.  (+info)

Cultivation-independent analysis of fungal genotypes in soil by using simple sequence repeat markers. (8/123)

Cultivation-independent analyses of fungi are used for community profiling as well as identification of specific strains in environmental samples. The objective of the present study was to adapt genotyping based on simple sequence repeat (SSR) marker detection for use in cultivation-independent monitoring of fungal species or strains in bulk soil DNA. As a model system, a fungal biocontrol agent (BCA) based on Beauveria brongniartii, for which six SSR markers have been developed, was used. Species specificity of SSR detection was verified with 15 fungal species. Real-time PCR was used to adjust for different detection sensitivities of the six SSR markers as well as for different template quantities. The limit for reliable detection per PCR assay was below 2 pg target DNA, corresponding to an estimated 45 genome copies of B. brongniartii. The cultivation-independent approach was compared to cultivation-dependent SSR analysis with soil samples from a B. brongniartii BCA-treated field plot. Results of the cultivation-independent method were consistent with cultivation-dependent genotyping and allowed for unambiguous identification and differentiation of the applied as well as indigenous strains in the samples. Due to the larger quantities of soil used for cultivation-dependent analysis, its sensitivity was higher, but cultivation-independent SSR genotyping was much faster. Therefore, cultivation-independent monitoring of B. brongniartii based on multiple SSR markers represents a rapid and strain-specific approach. This strategy may also be applicable to other fungal species or strains for which SSR markers have been developed.  (+info)

The potential of a strain of Beauveria bassiana (Ascomycota: Clavicipitaceae) obtained from a naturally infected Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) pupa as a biological control agent against this weevil was evaluated both in the laboratory and in semi-field assays. Laboratory results indicate that this strain of B. bassiana can infect eggs, larvae and adults of R. ferrugineus (LC,sub,50,/sub, from 6.3×10,sup,7,/sup, to 3.0×10,sup,9,/sup, conidia per ml). However, mortality was not the only indicator of treatment efficacy because adults of either sex inoculated with the fungus efficiently transmitted the disease to untreated adults of the opposite sex, with male-to-female and female-to-male rates of transmission of 55% and 60%, respectively. In addition, treatment with B. bassiana significantly reduced fecundity (up to 62.6%) and egg hatching (32.8%) in pairing combinations with fungus-challenged males, females or both sexes. Likewise, 30-35% increase in larval mortality was ...
Aims: The genetic diversity of Beauveria bassiana was investigated by comparing isolates of this species to each other (49 from different geographical regions of Brazil and 4 from USA) and to other Beauveria spp. Methods and Results: The isolates were examined by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), and rDNA sequencing. MLEE and AFLP revealed considerable genetic variability among B. bassiana isolates. Several isolates from South and Southeast Brazil had high similarity coefficients, providing evidence of at least one population with clonal structure. There were clear genomic differences between most Brazilian and USA B. bassiana isolates. A Mantel test using data generated by AFLP provided evidence that greater geographical distances were associated with higher genetic distances. AFLP and rDNA sequencing demonstrated notable genotypic variation between B. bassiana and other Beauveria spp. Conclusion: Geographical distance between populations

ABSTRACTAphids are regarded as one of the most important pest problems of vegetable crops worldwide. Most vegetable growers in sub-Saharan Africa heavily rely on chemical insecticides for control of aphids. However, the synthetic insecticided have detrimental effects on users, consumers and the environment. Fungal-based biopesticides are being considered as alternatives to synthetic chemical insecticides. This study evaluated the virulence of five isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metsch.) Sorok. and three of Beauveria bassiana (Bals.) Vuill. against apterous adults of Brevicoryne brassicae (L.), Lipaphis pseudobrassicae (Davis) and Aphis gossypii (Glover). The thermotolerance and conidial yield of the isolates were also evaluated as a prerequisite for strain selection. Three isolates of M. anisopliae ICIPE 30, ICIPE 62 and ICIPE 69 outperformed the other fungal isolates, causing mortality of 85-98%, 83-97%, and 73-77%, in B. brassicae, L. pseudobrassicae and A. gossypii, respectively, 7 d ...
abstract = {The Drosophila Toll-signaling pathway controls the systemic antifungal host response. Gram-negative binding protein 3 (GNBP3), a member of the beta-glucan recognition protein family senses fungal infections and activates this pathway. A second detection system perceives the activity of proteolytic fungal virulence factors and redundantly activates Toll. GNBP3(hades) mutant flies succumb more rapidly to Candida albicans and to entomopathogenic fungal infections than WT flies, despite normal triggering of the Toll pathway via the virulence detection system. These observations suggest that GNBP3 triggers antifungal defenses that are not dependent on activation of the Toll pathway. Here, we show that GNBP3 agglutinates fungal cells. Furthermore, it can activate melanization in a Toll-independent manner. Melanization is likely to be an essential defense against some fungal infections given that the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana inhibits the activity of the main melanization ...
Investigated the bioconversion of 2-ethylpyridine by the fungus Beauveria bassiana ATCC 7159. In the result of researches was obtained the hydroxylated derivative of the initial substrate. The yield of the product was observed as 60 %.
Heat and cold are environmental abiotic factors that restrict the use of entomopathogenic fungi as agents for biological control of insects. The thermotolerance and cold activity of 60 entomopathogenic fungal isolates, including five species of Beauveria and one isolate of Engyodontium albus (=Beauveria alba) were examined as to tolerance of temperatures that might be encountered during field use. In addition, cold activity of eight Metarhizium spp. isolates was evaluated. The isolates were from various geographic regions, arthropod hosts or substrates. High variability in conidial thermotolerance was found among the Beauveria spp. isolates after exposure to 45 degrees C for 2 h, as evidenced by low (0-20%), medium (20-60%), or high germination (60-80%). The thermal death point (0% germination) for three rather thermotolerant B. bassiana isolates (CG 138, GHA and ARSEF 252) was 46 degrees C for 6 h. At low temperatures (5 degrees C), with few exceptions (e.g. CG 66, UFPE 479, CG 227, CG 02), most of the
In Argentina, where several outbreaks of D. maculipennis wreaked losses on ranches and farms between 2008 and 2011, a research team led by Sebastian Pelizza of CEPAVE (Central de Estudios Parasitologicos y de Vectores, or Center for Parasitological and Vector Studies, part of the National University of La Plate), looked at the possibility of using the soil fungus Beauveria bassiana to combat D. maculipennis swarms and outbreaks.

Beauveria bassiana is a fungal entomopathogen with the ability to colonize plants endophytically. As an endophyte, B. bassiana may play a role in protecting plants from herbivory and disease. This protocol demonstrates two inoculation methods to establish B. bassiana endophytically in the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), in preparation for subsequent evaluations of endophytic biological control. Plants are grown from surface-sterilized seeds for two weeks before receiving a B. bassiana treatment of 108 conidia/ml (or water) applied either as a foliar spray or a soil drench. Two weeks later, the plants are harvested and their leaves, stems and roots are sampled to evaluate endophytic fungal colonization. For this, samples are individually surface sterilized, cut into multiple sections, and incubated in potato dextrose agar media for 20 days. The media is inspected every 2-3 days to observe fungal growth associated with plant sections and record the occurrence of B. bassiana to estimate the ...
There are a number of pesticides containing entomopathogenic fungi as the active ingredient that are commercially available for use in greenhouse production systems, including: Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA (BotaniGard: BioWorks Inc.), Metarhizum anisopliae Strain F52 (Met52: Monsanto BioAg Inc.), and Isaria fumosorosea Apopka Strain 97 (Ancora: OHP Inc.). Direct effects associated with entomopathogenic fungi involve acute mortality or survival (longevity), over a specified time period, of the life stages of natural enemies such as the egg, larva, nymph, pupa or adult. Indirect effects may inhibit feeding behavior (for predators); impact parasitism (for parasitoids); decrease female reproduction; reduce prey availability; and diminish foraging behavior or mobility.. The direct and indirect effects of entomopathogenic fungi on natural enemies is contingent on these factors: 1) product formulation, 2) spore concentration, 3) natural enemy type (parasitoid or predator) and species, 4) life stage ...
Temperature is a critical determinant of the development of malaria parasites in mosquitoes, and hence the geographic distribution of malaria risk, but little is known about the thermal preferences of Anopheles. A number of other insects modify their thermal behaviour in response to infection. These alterations can be beneficial for the insect or for the infectious agent. Given current interest in developing fungal biopesticides for control of mosquitoes, Anopheles stephensi were examined to test whether mosquitoes showed thermally-mediated behaviour in response to infection with fungal entomopathogens and the rodent malaria, Plasmodium yoelii. Over two experiments, groups of An. stephensi were infected with one of three entomopathogenic fungi, and/or P. yoelii. Infected and uninfected mosquitoes were released on to a thermal gradient (14 - 38°C) for snapshot assessments of thermal preference during the first five days post-infection. Mosquito survival was monitored for eight days and, where

All four isolates of B. bassiana and the one of M. anisopliae were found to be pathogenic to third-instar larvae of C. sordidus, causing mortalities of 98-100% by 9 days post-exposure to dry fungal spores. M. anisopliae was the least pathogenic to larvae with LT50 of 4.2 days, compared to 3.5, 3.3, 3.6 and 4.0 respectively for isolates I, II, III and 268-86.

Beauveria malawiensis was isolated from a cadaver of Phoracantha semipunctata (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) collected in Zomba, Malawi. Morphologically, B. malawiensis is distinguished by its pink colony color, the terminal and intercalary clusters of inflated conidiophores that each gives rise to multiple rachiform conidiogenous cells, and holoblastic cylindrical conidia. Phylogenetic analysis of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer and translation elongation factor-1 alpha sequences place B. malawiensis apart from other species in the genus that also produce cylindrical conidia, supporting its proposed species status.

Natural control. CLHB larvae are most susceptible to natural enemies in the early larval instar stage, or approximately the first two months of development. In China, predation by the weaver/red ants, Oecophylla smaragdina (Fab.) prevented the need for chemical control (Lieu 1945, Yang 1984). Sanitation. Field sanitation including cutting and burning/chipping of infested plant parts can eliminate immature stages. Mechanical exclusion. Since eggs are laid under the bark at the base of the trunk, wire nettings or spiral guards at the trunk base can serve as physical barrier for female oviposition. Biological control. The pathogenic fungi Beauveria brongniartii (Sacc.) is known to cause high adult mortality. In Japan, studies demonstrated adult mortality of 46 to 100% when sheets of polyurethane forms impregnated with Beauveria brongniartii were wrapped around the lower portion of the trunk or hung from the crotch (CABI 2004).

Virulence is often under selection during host-parasite coevolution. In order to increase fitness, parasites are predicted to circumvent and overcome host immunity. A particular challenge for pathogens are external immune systems, chemical defence systems comprised of potent antimicrobial compounds released by prospective hosts into the environment. We carried out an evolution experiment, allowing for coevolution to occur, with the entomopathogenic fungus, Beauveria bassiana, and the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum, which has a well-documented external immune system with strong inhibitory effects against B. bassiana. After just seven transfers of experimental evolution we saw a significant increase in parasite induced host mortality, a proxy for virulence, in all B. bassiana lines. This apparent virulence increase was mainly the result of the B. bassiana lines evolving resistance to the beetles external immune defences, not due to increased production of toxins or other harmful ...

Krs is a class II lysyl-tRNA synthetase (KRS) that is involved in cytosolic protein synthesis in budding yeast but functionally has not been explored in filamentous fungi. Previous transcriptomic analysis has revealed that a Krs-coding gene is likely involved in pathogenesis of Beauveria bassiana, a classic insect pathogen as a global source of fungal insecticides. Here, we show that Krs is localized in the cytoplasm of hyphal cells and acts as a substantial virulence factor in B. bassiana. Deletion of krs resulted in 10-h delayed germination, decreased (15 %) thermotolerance, and lowered (46 %) UV-B resistance of aerial conidia despite limited impact on conidiation capacity and slight or inconspicuous influence on radial growth on rich and minimal media with different carbon (10 sugars/polyols) and nitrogen (17 amino acids) sources ...

Two strains of Pseudomonas fluorscens bacteria differentially affect survivorship of waxworm (Galleria mellonella) larvae exposed to an arthropod fungal pathogen, Beauveria bassiana. Biocontrol Science and Technology. 23(2): 220-233. Interpretive Summary: In a field experiment by the same senior author (Meikle), biopesticide (which is like a pesticide but instead of chemicals it uses live fungal spores to attack pests) that had been commercially produced had very little effect on the bee mites (Varroa) that the product was trying to treat, and a negative effect on the nontarget insects, the bees themselves. This result was very different from previous field trials. The biopesticide was found to be contaminated by two strains of a bacteria that are often found in spoiled food and unclean water. The question was whether the bacteria may have interfered with the fungal spores and their ability to kill the mites. The ...

The OBS was baited with a synthetic mosquito lure, a blend consisting of carboxylic acids, ammonia and carbon dioxide. This lure was recently developed at Ifakara Health Institute [6, 8]. To reduce costs and ensure ease of handling, one constituent of the synthetic lure, industrial CO2 gas was replaced with organic CO2, made from a cocktail of bakers yeast and sugar [9, 10]. The mixture was prepared at least one hour before commencing the experiment to ensure that the yeast-sugar digestion process was already ongoing when the experiment started. The CO2 apparatus consisted of two separate plastic pots each having 500 grams of sugar and 3 litres water. Each pot contained a different amount of bakers yeast i.e. 80 g and 150 g of respectively. The yeast-sugar suspension inside both pots was adequately stirred before the pots were placed inside the OBS. This two-pot system, initially described by Saito et al [9] ensures a continuous supply of sufficient CO2 gas throughout the night. For the ...
Abstract: Background and Objective: The California Red Scale (CRS) is a serious pest of citrus in many parts of the world. Different control methods have been adopted, but their effectiveness remains limited. The objective was to isolate fungi from the CRS corpses and determine the efficacy of two isolated strains, Aspergilllus flavus and Fusarium oxysporum against different CRS developmental stages. Materials and Methods: Fungal isolates obtained from RSC corpses were identified by studying their macroscopic and microscopic aspects. Mycelial biomass was used for genomic DNA extraction according to kit protocol. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) with specific primers on a partial sequence was used for each fungal isolate. Each PCR product was sequenced in the forward and reverse directions using an Applied Biosystem ABI 3130×l sequencer. Results: The result of the study informs that most isolated strains belonged to five genera of Aspergillus, Alternaria, Fusarium, Rhizopus and Cladosporium. At ...
To provide new information on the persistence in the environment of wild and inundatively-released genotypes of entomopathogenic microorganisms applied as microbial bio-insecticides. The study will use soil-dwelling entomopathogenic fungi as a model system. There is a sense of urgency to the development of bio-insecticides, but a responsible approach is also required which considers their use in relation to environmental sustainability (Bidochka et al., 1996). The high level of host specificity of many bio-insecticides means that unwanted direct effects on nontarget organisms are likely to be rare. However, inundative releases of a host specific genotype could have unintended indirect effects, for example on natural entomopathogen biodiversity and effectiveness, on the abundance of arthropod natural enemies through competitive effects, or on infra specific groupings of the target host species that are associated with non-crop plants (Lockwood, 1993; Roy & Pell, 2000; Pearson and Callaway, 2003; ...

Two compounds made from a fungus could help researchers develop new drugs for treating atherosclerosis. When researchers tested them in mice, they appeared to prevent the accumulation of lipids in the cells where hardening of the arteries starts. (In the beginning stages of atherosclerosis, cells called macrophages store cholesterol and fatty acids.) In the study, Japanese researchers isolated the compounds from Beauveria fungus and called them beauveriolides.They tested the compounds macrophage cells and learned that the compounds prevent the formation of droplets and the activity of an enzyme called acyl-CoA: cholesterol acyltransferase. Thus they prevent the string of events that eventually lead to hardening the arteries. In mice bred to develop atherosclerosis, these compounds lowered atherosclerotic lesion formation by about 50% in treated animals, compared with controls. Also, no side effects such as damage to adrenal tissue were noted. The researchers reported their findings in the ...

The effect of endophytic Beauveria bassiana in banana (Musa spp.) plants against the banana weevil Cosmopolites sordidus was examined in a screenhouse study in Uganda. Tissue-cultured banana plants (cv. Kibuzi, genome group EA-AAA) were inoculated by dipping roots in a B. bassiana suspension of 1.5 x 107 conidia/ml for 2 h. C. sordidus larvae were introduced 2 months later. Two weeks after larval infestation, endophytic B. bassiana significantly reduced larval survivorship (23.5[long dash]88.9% mycosis), resulting in 42.0[long dash]86.7% reduction of plant damage. This study has demonstrated for the first time that endophytic B. bassiana can be used to target the cryptic and damaging stage of C. sordidus, and offers an alternative, effective delivery mechanism for this biological control agent.. ...

Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki is the most invasive termite species and has the largest economic impact of all the subterranean termites in the US. Although a lot of work has been done on the determination of chemical composition of frontal gland secretion from different families of termites, the protein component of those secretions was relatively overlooked. This study started with the observation that proteins are present in the frontal gland secretion of Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki soldiers. The goal was to characterize one of these proteins by identifying its DNA sequence which would lead to protein sequence, function, structure and role it plays in the defense of Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki. The protein cloned named TFP4 and analysis of its sequence revealed a molecular weight of 6853 Daltons. The sequence was compared with those of known proteins in NCBIs data base and similarities with other proteins analyzed. Two functions were assigned to TFP4, lysozyme and serine protease inhibitor.
Keywords: biocontrol agent, Cladosporium cladosporioides, fungal growth, insect cuticle, enzyme assay, IPMIntroduction The entomopathogenic fungus, Cladosporium cladosporioides is an important natural enemy of arthropods capable of infecting them directly through the integument (Shahid et al. 2012). Some Cladosporium species are efficient as biological insecticides, particularly against insects that have developed resistance to chemical insecticides (Abdel-Baky and Abdel-Salam 2003). It is well known that the entomopathogenic fungus is effective against a wide spectrum of insect pests and is commonly utilized in integrated pest management (IPM) as well as biological control programs (Bedini et al. 2018). By combining the entomopathogenic fungus with botanicals increase efficiency and accelerate the insect mortality (Asi et al. 2010; Serebrov et al. 2005; Purwar and Sachan 2006; Islam et al. 2010a, b). The appropriate use of entomopathogenic fungus and botanicals can play a significant role in ...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of entomopathogenic fungi on adults of Rhynchophorus palmarum (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). The experimental design was completely randomized in a factorial design (5x3) + control, composed of five treatments (isolated IBCB 66, CPATC 032, CPATC 057 and T9, and the commercial product Boveril®) and three concentrations of each fungus (107, 108 and 109 conidia.mL-1). The data of confirmed mortality were submitted to analysis of variance (ANOVA) using the Proc ANOVA of SAS, and the means compared by Tukey test at 5% probability. To determine percentage survival, confirmed mortality data were subjected to Log-Rank test using the Kaplan-Meyer method. Subsequently the values of LC50 and LT50 were estimated submitting mortality confirmed the Probit analysis. For the concentration 108 conidia.mL-1, the isolates CPATC 032 and CPATC 057 caused confirmed mortality of 52 and 44% of the adults of R. palmarum, respectively. At the concentration 109 ...
Biopesticides include fungi, bacteria, neem extract and pheromones. The effectiveness of many biopesticides equals that of conventional chemical pesticides, but there are two distinct differences. Biopesticides in general take longer to kill insects, plant diseases, or weeds, usually between 2 and 10 days. There are two types of biopesticides - biochemical and microbial. Biochemical pesticides are similar to naturally occurring chemicals and are nontoxic, such as insect pheromones used to locate mates, while microbial biopesticides, come from bacteria, fungi, algae or viruses that either occur naturally or are genetically altered. Entomopathogenic fungi generally suppress pests by mycosis: causing a disease that is specific to the insect. Biological control products have been under development since the late nineties; Green Muscle and NOVACRID are based on a naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus (i.e. insects-infecting fungus), Metarhizium acridum. Species of Metarhizium are widespread ...

Biopesticides are the fastest-growing crop protection market sector increasing at twice the compound annual growth rate of the crop protection market as a whole. In 2013, biopesticides represented 3% of the global crop protection market and are expected to grow to nearly 5% by 2015. Microbial biopesticides represent the largest product type in the biopesticide market, occupying close to 70% of the total market. Bioinsecticides are the largest use segment, occupying 50% of the total market. Several factors have prompted the biopesticide market expansion, but the needs of growers and manufacturers have been the primary driving forces of growth. These needs include a reduction in chemical and pesticide residues, stricter import and supermarket standards, a shorter pre-harvest interval, a push for sustainability, and additional modes of action for managing resistance. Browse the slideshow below for a visual presentation of more impressive biopesticide stats. ...
The lethal qualities that made Bassis fungus the bane of silk producers have proven a boon for agriculture and public health. Named Beauveria bassiana after its discoverer, it is a potent biological control agent against a host of harmful insects, including grasshoppers, locusts, bed bugs, and house flies. When the fungus contacts its host, spores germinate, enter the body, and grow internally, killing the insect within a few days. New spores arise from a white mold that covers the dead insect like the wrappings of a mummy, contributing to the infections name of white muscardine disease.. Given the virulence of this fungus, pest control managers have considered whether it might also be effective against one of the most damaging cattle pests, the horn fly (Haematobia irritans), but research recently published in the open-access Journal of Insect Science suggests that, while it holds promise, lots of work remains to be done. The fungus samples tested in the research had stopping power but did ...

The team used Formica fusca, an ant species that can form thousand-strong colonies. This common black ant eats other insects, and also aphid honeydew. It often nests in tree stumps or under rocks and foraging workers can sometimes be spotted climbing trees.. Some ants were infected with Beauveria bassiana, a fungus. Infected ants chose food laced with toxic hydrogen peroxide, whereas healthy ants avoided it. Hydrogen peroxide reduced infected ant fatalities by 15%, and the ants varied their intake depending upon how high the peroxide concentration was.. In the wild, Formica fusca can encounter similar chemicals in aphids and dead ants. The Independent reported self-medicating ants a first among insects.. Bos obtained his doctorate from the University of Copenhagen. He began postdoctoral research at Helsinki in 2012. He also runs the AntyScience blog.
