Evolutionary dynamics of a mitochondrial rearrangement "hot spot" in the Hymenoptera. (1/339)The arrangement of tRNA genes at the junction of the cytochrome oxidase II and ATPase 8 genes was examined across a broad range of Hymenoptera. Seven distinct arrangements of tRNA genes were identified among a group of wasps that have diverged over the last 180 Myr (suborder Apocrita); many of the rearrangements represent evolutionarily independent events. Approximately equal proportions of local rearrangements, inversions, and translocations were observed, in contrast to vertebrate mitochondria, in which local rearrangements predominate. Surprisingly, homoplasy was evident among certain types of rearrangement; a reversal of the plesiomorphic gene order has arisen on three separate occasions in the Insecta, while the tRNA(H) gene has been translocated to this locus on two separate occasions. Phylogenetic analysis indicates that this gene translocation is real and is not an artifactual translocation resulting from the duplication of a resident tRNA gene followed by mutation of the anticodon. The nature of the intergenic sequences surrounding this region does not indicate that it should be especially prone to rearrangement; it does not generally have the tandem or inverted repeats that might facilitate this plasticity. Intriguingly, these findings are consistent with the view that during the evolution of the Hymenoptera, rearrangements increased at the same time that the rate of point mutations and compositional bias also increased. This association may direct investigations into mitochondrial genome plasticity in other invertebrate lineages. (+info)
Presence of polydnavirus transcripts in an egg-larval parasitoid and its lepidopterous host. (2/339)The parasitoid Chelonus inanitus (Braconidae, Hymenoptera) oviposits into eggs of Spodoptera littoralis (Noctuidae, Lepidoptera) and, along with the egg, also injects polydnaviruses and venom, which are prerequisites for successful parasitoid development. The parasitoid larva develops within the embryonic and larval stages of the host, which enters metamorphosis precociously and arrests development in the prepupal stage. Polydnaviruses are responsible for the developmental arrest and interfere with the host's endocrine system in the last larval instar. Polydnaviruses have a segmented genome and are transmitted as a provirus integrated in the wasp's genome. Virions are only formed in female wasps and no virus replication is seen in the parasitized host. Here it is shown that very small amounts of viral transcripts were found in parasitized eggs and early larval instars of S. littoralis. Later on, transcript quantities increased and were highest in the late last larval instar for two of the three viral segments tested and in the penultimate to early last larval instar for the third segment. These are the first data on the occurrence of viral transcripts in the host of an egg-larval parasitoid and they are different from data reported for hosts of larval parasitoids, where transcript levels are already high shortly after parasitization. The analysis of three open reading frames by RT-PCR revealed viral transcripts in parasitized S. littoralis and in female pupae of C. inanitus, indicating the absence of host specificity. For one open reading frame, transcripts were also seen in male pupae, suggesting transcription from integrated viral DNA. (+info)
Related RNAs in lepidopteran cells after in vitro infection with Hyposoter didymator virus define a new polydnavirus gene family. (3/339)In the present study, we describe the isolation and the characterization of three different Hyposoter didymator virus (HdV) lepidopteran host-expressed genes, the products of which might interfere with the host physiology during parasitism. In this report, we study the expression of HdV genes in Sf9 cells infected with HdV since results indicate that the Sf9 model mimics to some extent the in vivo model and may be utilized to study expression of HdV genes in lepidopteran host cells. This system allowed us to isolate three HdV-specific cDNAs, termed M24, M27, and M40. cDNA nucleotide sequence analysis demonstrated significant regions of homology. The three cDNAs displayed repeated sequences arranged in tandem array that might have evolved through domain duplication. Similar to other previously described polydnavirus host-expressed genes, two intron positions have been found in the M24 leader region. The cDNAs corresponded to RNAs of 1.5, 1.6, and 2.3 kb that are also detected in parasitized Spodoptera littoralis larvae. They are encoded by different genes likely located on different HdV DNA molecules. Corresponding RNAs are detected early postinfection and remain detectable for at least 10 days postinfection. They encode secreted glycine- and proline-rich proteins. An antiserum raised against a baculovirus recombinant M24-encoded protein detected similar proteins in the culture medium of infected lepidopteran cells and in parasitized host hemolymph. We propose that the three cloned genes belong to an HdV gene family specifically expressed in parasitized lepidopteran hosts. (+info)
General kin selection models for genetic evolution of sib altruism in diploid and haplodiploid species. (4/339)A population genetic approach is presented for general analysis and comparison of kin selection models of sib and half-sib altruism. Nine models are described, each assuming a particular mode of inheritance, number of female inseminations, and Mendelian dominance of the altruist gene. In each model, the selective effects of altruism are described in terms of two general fitness functions, A(beta) and S(beta), giving respectively the expected fitness of an altruist and a nonaltruist as a function of the fraction of altruists beta in a given sibship. For each model, exact conditions are reported for stability at altruist and nonaltruist fixation. Under the Table 3 axions, the stability conditions may then be partially ordered on the basis of implications holding between pairs of conditions. The partial orderings are compared with predictions of the kin selection theory of Hamilton. (+info)
Linkage analysis of sex determination in Bracon sp. near hebetor (Hymenoptera: Braconidae). (5/339)To test whether sex determination in the parasitic wasp Bracon sp. near hebetor (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is based upon a single locus or multiple loci, a linkage map was constructed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. The map includes 71 RAPD markers and one phenotypic marker, blonde. Sex was scored in a manner consistent with segregation of a single "sex locus" under complementary sex determination (CSD), which is common in haplodiploid Hymenoptera. Under haplodiploidy, males arise from unfertilized haploid eggs and females develop from fertilized diploid eggs. With CSD, females are heterozygous at the sex locus; diploids that are homozygous at the sex locus become diploid males, which are usually inviable or sterile. Ten linkage groups were formed at a minimum LOD of 3.0, with one small linkage group that included the sex locus. To locate other putative quantitative trait loci (QTL) for sex determination, sex was also treated as a binary threshold character. Several QTL were found after conducting permutation tests on the data, including one on linkage group I that corresponds to the major sex locus. One other QTL of smaller effect had a segregation pattern opposite to that expected under CSD, while another putative QTL showed a female-specific pattern consistent with either a sex-differentiating gene or a sex-specific deleterious mutation. Comparisons are made between this study and the in-depth studies on sex determination and sex differentiation in the closely related B. hebetor. (+info)
Single-locus complementary sex determination in Diadegma chrysostictos (Gmelin) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae). (6/339)Following the establishment of isofemale lines and subsequent inbreeding, the ichneumonid parasitoid wasp Diadegma chrysostictos (Gmelin) was shown by segregation of polymorphic alloenzyme loci to have single-locus complementary sex determination (sl-CSD). This and the biparental nature of diploid males was confirmed using two independent Mendelian recessive phenotypic markers. The existence of diploid males, sl-CSD, and the abrogation of diploid males following outbreeding was further confirmed by flow cytometry, a potentially general method that is independent of the maternal sex allocation or the need for genetic markers. Estimates of the number of sex alleles in several British populations demonstrated 17-19 alleles in Britain, with a decline toward the northerly limit of the parasitoid's range, varying from 16 in the south of England to 4-5 in central Scotland, in broad agreement with the rate of attainment of a male-biased sex ratio when used to establish en masse laboratory cultures. These data represent the second confirmation of the existence of sl-CSD in the Ichneumonidae (and the first in the Campopleginae subfamily), lending further support to the notion that sl-CSD was the ancestral condition in the Aculeata/Ichneumonoidea clade (Cook 1993a; Periquet et al. 1993).

Behavioural mimicry of honeybees (Apis mellifera) by droneflies (Diptera: Syrphidae: Eristalis spp.). (7/339)Droneflies (Syrphidae: Eristalis spp. resemble honeybees (Apis mellifera) in appearance and have often been considered to be Batesian mimics. This study used a focal watch technique in order to compare the foraging behaviour of droneflies Eristalis tenax, Eristalis pertinax, Eristalis arbustorum and Eristalis nemorum) whilst they were feeding on patches of flowers with the behaviour of honeybees and other hymenopterans and dipterans. It was found that, on a range of plant species, the time droneflies spent on individual flowers and the time spent flying between them was more similar to that of honeybees than to the times of other hymenopterans and dipterans. These results suggest that dronefly behaviour has evolved to become more similar to that of honeybees and they support the hypothesis that droneflies are Batesian mimics. (+info)
A linkage map of the turnip sawfly Athalia rosae (Hymenoptera: Symphyta) based on random amplified polymorphic DNAs. (8/339)A linkage map was constructed for the sawfly, Athalia rosae (Hymenoptera), based on the segregation of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers and a visible mutation, yellow fat body (yfb). Forty haploid male progeny (20 yfb and 20+) from a single diploid female parent (yfb/+) were examined. Sixty-one of the 180 arbitrary primers tested by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) produced one or more RAPD bands. A total of 79 RAPD markers were detected. Of these, seven showed significant deviation from the expected 1:1 ratio, and were therefore excluded from further analysis. The remaining 72 RAPD markers and the marker mutation, yfb, were subjected to linkage analysis. Sixty RAPD markers and the yfb marker were organized into 16 linkage groups, spanning a distance of 517.2 cM. Twelve RAPD markers showed no linkage relationship to any group. Thirteen gel-purified RAPD bands were cloned and sequenced to generate the sequence-tagged sites (STSs). A single locus was represented by two markers, with one of them having a short internal deletion. (+info)
In the medical field, "bees" typically refers to the venomous insects of the family Apidae, which includes honeybees, bumblebees, and other species. The venom of bees contains a complex mixture of proteins and enzymes that can cause a range of symptoms in humans, from mild itching and swelling to severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. When a person is stung by a bee, the venom is injected into the skin, causing local inflammation and pain. In some cases, the venom can trigger an allergic reaction, which can cause symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, and a rapid heartbeat. In severe cases, anaphylaxis can occur, which is a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention. In addition to their potential to cause harm, bees also play an important role in the medical field as a source of therapeutic compounds. For example, honeybee venom has been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, and may be used in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis and chronic pain. Similarly, bee venom therapy, which involves the administration of small amounts of bee venom to stimulate the immune system, has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer.
Arthropod venoms are toxic substances produced by arthropods, such as insects, spiders, scorpions, and crustaceans, that are injected into their prey or predators during an attack. These venoms contain a complex mixture of proteins, peptides, enzymes, and other molecules that can cause a range of physiological effects in the victim, including pain, inflammation, paralysis, and even death. In the medical field, arthropod venoms are studied for their potential therapeutic and pharmacological properties. Some of the components of arthropod venoms have been found to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-cancer effects, and are being investigated as potential treatments for various diseases and conditions. Additionally, arthropod venoms are also used in the development of new drugs and vaccines for the prevention and treatment of arthropod-borne diseases, such as snake bites, spider bites, and insect stings.
In the medical field, ants typically refer to the medical condition known as antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). APS is an autoimmune disorder characterized by the presence of antibodies that bind to phospholipids, which are lipids that are important components of cell membranes. These antibodies can cause blood clots to form in the blood vessels, leading to a variety of medical problems such as stroke, heart attack, and pulmonary embolism. APS can also cause pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, stillbirth, and premature birth. It is typically diagnosed through blood tests that detect the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies in the blood. Treatment for APS may include anticoagulant medications to prevent blood clots, as well as corticosteroids or other immunosuppressive drugs to reduce the activity of the autoimmune response.
Insect bites and stings refer to the injuries caused by the bites or stings of insects, such as mosquitoes, bees, wasps, ants, ticks, and fleas. These bites and stings can cause a range of symptoms, from mild itching and redness to severe allergic reactions that can be life-threatening. Insect bites and stings can be painful and uncomfortable, and may lead to skin infections if left untreated. Some insects, such as mosquitoes and ticks, can transmit diseases to humans, such as malaria, dengue fever, and Lyme disease. In the medical field, the treatment of insect bites and stings typically involves cleaning the affected area with soap and water, applying ice or a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. In some cases, antihistamines may be prescribed to reduce itching and swelling. For severe allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis, emergency medical treatment is necessary, including the administration of epinephrine and other medications to counteract the symptoms of the allergic reaction.
Bee venoms are the toxic secretions produced by honeybees, bumblebees, and other types of bees. These venoms contain a complex mixture of proteins, enzymes, and other substances that can cause a range of physiological effects in humans and other animals. In the medical field, bee venom therapy (BVT) is a form of alternative medicine that involves the use of bee venom to treat various conditions. BVT is believed to work by stimulating the body's immune system and promoting the production of natural painkillers called endorphins. BVT has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and allergies. However, the effectiveness of BVT is not well-established, and it can cause serious side effects, including allergic reactions, skin irritation, and even anaphylaxis in some cases. Therefore, the use of bee venom therapy should only be considered under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional, and patients should be carefully monitored for any adverse reactions.
Wasp venoms are the toxic secretions produced by wasps, including hornets, yellow jackets, and paper wasps. These venoms contain a complex mixture of proteins, enzymes, and other molecules that can cause a range of physiological effects in humans and other animals. The effects of wasp venom can vary depending on the species of wasp, the amount of venom injected, and the individual's sensitivity to the venom. Common symptoms of wasp venom allergy include hives, swelling, itching, difficulty breathing, and anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction that can cause shock and death. In the medical field, wasp venom is studied for its potential therapeutic uses, such as in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. Some of the active components of wasp venom, such as melittin and apamin, have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. However, the use of wasp venom in medicine is still in the experimental stage, and more research is needed to fully understand its potential benefits and risks.
Biological control agents are organisms or substances that are used to control or manage pests, diseases, or invasive species in a natural or managed ecosystem. In the medical field, biological control agents are often used to treat or prevent infections caused by microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. For example, vaccines are a type of biological control agent that are used to prevent infections caused by viruses. They contain weakened or inactivated forms of the virus or parts of the virus that can stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies against the virus. This helps to protect the body from future infections by the same virus. Other examples of biological control agents in the medical field include antibiotics, which are used to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria, and antiviral drugs, which are used to treat viral infections. Some biological control agents are also used in the treatment of parasitic infections, such as those caused by worms or protozoa. Overall, biological control agents are an important tool in the medical field for preventing and treating a wide range of infections and diseases.
I'm sorry, but "Beekeeping" is not typically associated with the medical field. Beekeeping is the practice of keeping honey bees for the purpose of harvesting honey, beeswax, and other bee products, as well as for pollination of crops. It is more commonly associated with agriculture and apiculture (beekeeping) rather than medicine. However, honey produced by bees has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, and some studies have suggested that it may have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Additionally, bee venom therapy, which involves the administration of small amounts of bee venom to treat various conditions, has been studied in some medical contexts.
Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction that occurs rapidly after exposure to an allergen. It is a systemic reaction that affects multiple body systems, including the respiratory, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal systems. The symptoms of anaphylaxis can develop within minutes of exposure to an allergen and can include: - Hives or welts on the skin - Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat - Difficulty breathing or wheezing - Rapid or weak pulse - Drop in blood pressure - Nausea or vomiting - Dizziness or fainting Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment with epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and other medications to counteract the symptoms and prevent further complications. If left untreated, anaphylaxis can lead to respiratory failure, cardiac arrest, and death.
In the medical field, "Brazil" typically refers to the country located in South America. Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America, and it is known for its diverse population, rich culture, and natural resources. In terms of healthcare, Brazil has a publicly funded healthcare system called the Unified Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde, or SUS). The SUS provides free or low-cost healthcare services to all Brazilian citizens and residents, including primary care, hospitalization, and specialized medical care. Brazil has also made significant strides in public health, particularly in the areas of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and dengue fever. The country has implemented widespread vaccination programs and has made efforts to improve access to healthcare services in underserved areas. However, Brazil still faces significant challenges in the healthcare sector, including a shortage of healthcare professionals, inadequate infrastructure, and disparities in access to healthcare services between different regions and socioeconomic groups.
In the medical field, arthropod antennae refer to the sensory organs found on the head of arthropods, such as insects, spiders, and crustaceans. These antennae are typically composed of a series of segments, each of which bears sensory hairs or other structures that help the arthropod detect and respond to stimuli in its environment. Arthropod antennae serve a variety of functions, including navigation, communication, and sensing of chemical, tactile, and visual stimuli. For example, many insects use their antennae to detect pheromones, which are chemical signals used for communication between members of the same species. Some arthropods also use their antennae to detect vibrations in the air or ground, which can help them locate prey or avoid predators. In medical research, arthropod antennae have been studied for their potential use in developing new sensors and other devices. For example, the highly sensitive sensory structures found on arthropod antennae have inspired the development of artificial olfactory sensors that can detect trace amounts of chemicals in the environment.
The Basophil Degranulation Test (BDT) is a diagnostic test used to evaluate the function of basophils, a type of white blood cell that plays a role in the immune response. Basophils contain granules that contain various chemicals, including histamine, that are released when the cell is activated. The BDT measures the release of these chemicals from basophils in response to a specific stimulus, such as an allergen or a drug. During the BDT, a sample of a patient's blood is taken and the basophils are isolated and stimulated with an allergen or other substance. The release of chemicals from the basophils is then measured, typically by assessing the amount of histamine in the sample. A high level of histamine release indicates that the basophils are functioning properly and are able to respond to the stimulus. A low level of histamine release, on the other hand, may indicate that the basophils are not functioning properly and may be involved in an allergic reaction or other immune disorder. The BDT is often used to diagnose and monitor allergies, particularly those involving the respiratory system. It may also be used to evaluate the function of basophils in other conditions, such as certain types of cancer or autoimmune disorders.
RNA, Ribosomal, 28S is a type of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) that is a component of the large subunit of the ribosome in eukaryotic cells. The ribosome is a complex molecular machine that is responsible for protein synthesis, and it is composed of both ribosomal RNA and ribosomal proteins. The ribosome has two subunits, a large subunit and a small subunit, and each subunit contains a variety of rRNA molecules. The 28S rRNA is one of the largest rRNA molecules in the large subunit of the ribosome, and it is responsible for binding to the messenger RNA (mRNA) molecule during protein synthesis. In the medical field, the 28S rRNA is often studied as a target for the development of new drugs that can interfere with protein synthesis and potentially treat a variety of diseases, including cancer and viral infections. It is also used as a diagnostic tool in molecular biology, as it is present in all eukaryotic cells and can be easily detected and quantified using various laboratory techniques.
Ant venoms are toxic secretions produced by ants that are used for defense against predators. In the medical field, ant venoms have been studied for their potential therapeutic properties, particularly in the treatment of pain and inflammation. Some ant venoms contain compounds that can block pain receptors in the nervous system, making them useful in the development of new pain medications. Other ant venoms contain compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties, which could be useful in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. Ant venoms have also been studied for their potential use in the treatment of cancer. Some ant venom compounds have been shown to selectively target and kill cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. However, it is important to note that ant venoms can also be dangerous and can cause serious harm if not handled properly. As such, the use of ant venoms in medicine is typically restricted to controlled laboratory settings and requires specialized training and equipment.
