Social rank-order established by certain behavioral patterns.

Horizontal transfer of Wolbachia between phylogenetically distant insect species by a naturally occurring mechanism. (1/879)

Wolbachia is a genus of alpha-proteobacteria found in obligate intracellular association with a wide variety of arthropods, including an estimated 10-20% of all insect species [1]. Wolbachia represents one of a number of recently identified 'reproductive parasites' [2] which manipulate the reproduction of their hosts in ways that enhance their own transmission [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9]. The influence of Wolbachia infection on the dynamics of host populations has focused considerable interest on its possible role in speciation through reproductive isolation [3] [10] [11] and as an agent of biological control [2] [12] [13]. Although Wolbachia normally undergoes vertical transmission through the maternal line of its host population [14], there is compelling evidence from molecular phylogenies that extensive horizontal (intertaxon) transmission must have occurred [1] [9] [15] [16] [17]. Some of the best candidate vectors for the horizontal transmission of Wolbachia are insect parasitoids [15], which comprise around 25% of all insect species and attack arthropods from an enormous range of taxa [18]. In this study, we used both fluorescence microscopy and PCR amplification with Wolbachia-specific primers to show that Wolbachia can be transmitted to a parasitic wasp (Leptopilina boulardi) from its infected host (Drosophila simulans) and subsequently undergo diminishing vertical transmission in this novel host species. These results are, to our knowledge, the first to reveal a natural horizontal transfer route for Wolbachia between phylogenetically distant insect species.  (+info)

Genetic localization of a Drosophila melanogaster resistance gene to a parasitoid wasp and physical mapping of the region. (2/879)

Drosophila melanogaster larvae usually react against eggs of the parasitoid wasp Leptopilina boulardi by surrounding them with a multicellular melanotic capsule. The genetic determinism of this response has been studied previously using susceptible (non-capsule-forming) and resistant (capsule-forming) strains. The results suggest that differences in their encapsulation response involve a single gene, resistance to Leptopilina boulardi (Rlb), with two alleles, the resistant one being dominant. Rlb confers specific protection against Leptopilina boulardi and is thus probably involved in parasitoid recognition. Recent studies have localized this gene on the right arm of the second chromosome and our aim was to precisely determine its genetic and molecular location. Using strains bearing deletions, we demonstrated that resistance to Leptopilina boulardi is conferred by the 55C; 55F3 region and that the 55E2-E6; F3 region is particularly involved. A physical map of the 55C; 56A region was then constructed, based on a set of overlapping cosmid and P1 phage clones. Using single and double digests, cross hybridization of restriction fragments, and location of genetically mapped genes and STSs, a complete, five-enzyme restriction map of this 830-kb region was obtained.  (+info)

Developmental analysis of Ganaspis xanthopoda, a larval parasitoid of Drosophila melanogaster. (3/879)

Ganaspis xanthopoda is a solitary larval parasitoid wasp of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. The life cycle of Ganaspis xanthopoda in the wild-type and developmental mutant ecdysoneless strains of Drosophila melanogaster is described. The female infects a second-instar host larva. The parasitoid embryo hatches into a mobile first-instar (L1) larva. The L1 parasitoid has fleshy appendages and, while mobile, it remains confined within the wandering larval host. The second-instar larva (L2) is an endoparasite within the host prepupa and lacks appendages. The L2-to-L3 molt is dependent on pupation and marks the transition of the endoparasite into an ectoparasite. The third-instar larva (L3) is a sessile ectoparasite, develops an extensive tracheal system and consumes the host as it progresses through its prepupal and pupal stages. A single adult male or female emerges from the host puparium. The developmental analysis of Ganaspis xanthopoda reveals a tight synchrony between host and parasitoid development which is, at least in part, dependent on the ecdysone levels of the host.  (+info)

Mapping of hybrid incompatibility loci in Nasonia. (4/879)

According to theory, F(2) hybrid breakdown (lethality or sterility) is due to incompatibilities between interacting genes of the different species (i.e., the breaking up of coadapted gene complexes). Detection of such incompatibilities is particularly straightforward in haplodiploid species, because virgin F(1) hybrid females will produce haploid recombinant F(2) males. This feature allows for screening of the complete genome for recessive genetic incompatibilities. Crosses were performed between Nasonia vitripennis (v) and its sibling species N. giraulti (g). First, a linkage map was produced using RAPD markers. RAPD markers showed an overall bias toward vitripennis alleles, a pattern not predicted by the basic two-interactor Dobzhansky-Muller model. Recovery patterns of visible markers were consistent with those of linked RAPD markers. If particular genetic interactions between two loci are causing hybrid lethality, then those genotypes should be underrepresented or absent among adult F(2) males. Four sets of significant incompatibilities were detected by performing pairwise comparisons of markers on different chromosomes. Likely explanations for the observed patterns are maternal effect-zygotic gene incompatibilities or clustering of incompatibility loci. Due to the short generation time, advantages of haplodiploidy, and availability of markers, Nasonia promises to be a productive system for investigating the genetics of hybrid inviability.  (+info)

Genetic support for the evolutionary theory of reproductive transactions in social wasps. (5/879)

Recent evolutionary models of reproductive partitioning within animal societies (known as 'optimal skew', 'concessions' or 'transactional' models) predict that a dominant individual will often yield some fraction of the group's reproduction to a subordinate as an incentive to stay in the group and help rear the dominant's offspring. These models quantitatively predict how the magnitude of the subordinate's 'staying incentive' will vary with the genetic relatedness between dominant and subordinate, the overall expected group output and the subordinate's expected output if it breeds solitarily. We report that these predictions accord remarkably well with the observed reproductive partitioning between conesting dominant and subordinate queens in the social paper wasp Polistes fuscatus. In particular, the theory correctly predicts that (i) the dominant's share of reproduction, i.e. the skew, increases as the colony cycle progresses and (ii) the skew is positively associated both with the colony's productivity and with the relatedness between dominant and subordinate. Moreover, aggression between foundresses positively correlated with the skew, as predicted by transactional but not alternative tug-of-war models of societal evolution. Thus, our results provide the strongest (quantitative support yet for a unifying model of social evolution.  (+info)

Glucosinolate genetics and the attraction of the aphid parasitoid Diaeretiella rapae to Brassica. (6/879)

The control of insect pests using parasitoids and carnivores has been successfully applied in protected cropping systems, orchards and forestry. Their success in annual field crops has been more limited due largely to the difficulties of attracting and maintaining a sufficient density of parasitoids in the crop before the levls of the insect herbivores become economically damaging. Parasitoids are known to be attracted to host-plant volatiles; thus, manipulating the host-plant chemistry may provide a means of enhancing the attraction of parasitoids to their prey. In this study we describe the differential attraction of the braconid wasp Diaeretiella rapae to two near-isogenic lines of Brassica oleracea which differ in a gene which alters the chemical structure of the isothiocyanates which are emitted following tissue damage. We demonstrate that, by enhancing the production of but-3-enyl isothiocyanate in B. oleracea and Brassica napus (oilseed rape), we can increase the attraction of D. rapae to these plants under standard field conditions.  (+info)

Estimating ancestral geographical distributions: a Gondwanan origin for aphid parasitoids? (7/879)

We tested the published hypothesis of a Gondwanan origin for the overwhelmingly northern hemisphere aphid parasitoids (Aphidiinae) as follows: (i) finding their sister group by a phylogenetic analysis of the entire Braconidae (Insecta: Hymenopterai using sequence data from approximately 500 bp fragments of both the nuclear 28S (D2 region) and mitochondrial 16S rDNA genes, (ii) using this sister-group relationship and the more informative 28S D2 gene to estimate the phylogeny of the Aphidiinae and (iii) estimating the ancestral distribution for the Aphidiinae using maximum-likelihood and maximum-parsimony methods. Both methods indicated a Gondwanan origin.  (+info)

A gene encoding a polydnavirus structural polypeptide is not encapsidated. (8/879)

Polydnaviruses are symbiotic viruses associated with some parasitic Hymenoptera that are vertically transmitted as proviruses within wasp genomes. To study this symbiotic association a gene encoding an abundant Campoletis sonorensis polydnavirus virion protein was characterized. This gene is not encapsidated but resides in the wasp genome where it is expressed only during virus replication. Immunolocalization studies detected the encoded 44-kDa protein only in oviduct tissue with ultrastructural studies detecting epitopes between or on virion envelopes. Expression and localization of the 44-kDa protein are consistent with its being a viral structural protein but localization of the gene only within the wasp genome is atypical, raising the possibility that this protein is adventitiously packaged during virion assembly. To address this possibility, quantitative dot blot and genomic Southern blot hybridizations were performed to determine whether the copy number of the p44 gene increased disproportionately during replication, as would be expected for a gene encoding a virion protein. The copy number of the p44 gene increases in tissues supporting virus replication but is unchanged in other tissues, suggesting that this gene is amplified in replicative cells. The data indicate that genes encoding polydnavirus virion proteins may be distributed between wasp and encapsidated viral genomes.  (+info)

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "wasps" is not a term that has a specific medical definition. Wasps are a type of insect in the order Hymenoptera, and some people can have allergic reactions to their stings. However, there is no medical condition or disease specifically associated with wasps. If you have any specific medical concerns or questions, I would be happy to try to help if I can!

Wasp venoms are complex mixtures of bioactive molecules produced by wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) to defend themselves and paralyze prey. The main components include:

1. Phospholipases A2 (PLA2): Enzymes that can cause pain, inflammation, and damage to cell membranes.
2. Hyaluronidase: An enzyme that helps spread the venom by breaking down connective tissues.
3. Proteases: Enzymes that break down proteins and contribute to tissue damage and inflammation.
4. Antigen 5: A major allergen that can cause severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) in sensitive individuals.
5. Mastoparan: A peptide that induces histamine release, leading to localized inflammation and pain.
6. Neurotoxins: Some wasp venoms contain neurotoxins that can cause paralysis or neurological symptoms.

The composition of wasp venoms may vary among species, and individual sensitivity to the components can result in different reactions ranging from localized pain, swelling, and redness to systemic allergic responses.

Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome (WAS) is a rare X-linked recessive primary immunodeficiency disorder characterized by the triad of microthrombocytopenia, eczema, and recurrent infections. It is caused by mutations in the WAS gene, which encodes the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp), a key regulator of actin cytoskeleton reorganization in hematopoietic cells.

The clinical features of WAS include:

1. Microthrombocytopenia: This is characterized by small platelet size and low platelet count, leading to an increased risk of bleeding.
2. Eczema: This is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder that can cause itching, redness, and scaly patches on the skin.
3. Recurrent infections: Patients with WAS are susceptible to bacterial, viral, and fungal infections due to impaired immune function.

Other clinical manifestations of WAS may include autoimmune disorders, lymphoma, and inflammatory bowel disease. The severity of the disease can vary widely among patients, ranging from mild to severe. Treatment options for WAS include hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), gene therapy, and supportive care measures such as antibiotics, immunoglobulin replacement therapy, and platelet transfusions.

"Ficus" is not a medical term. It is a genus of plants, including the fig tree, which is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical regions. Some species of Ficus are used in traditional medicine, but "Ficus" itself does not have a specific medical definition.

Polydnaviridae is a family of viruses that have a unique relationship with parasitic wasps in the order Hymenoptera. These viruses are double-stranded DNA viruses that are integrated into the genome of their wasp hosts and are transmitted vertically from one generation to the next through the eggs.

Polydnaviruses (PDVs) have a complex structure, consisting of multiple circular DNA molecules encapsidated in enveloped particles. They do not replicate in the wasp host but instead are produced in the calyx cells of the wasp's ovary and incorporated into the venom that is injected into the caterpillar or other insect host during oviposition.

Once inside the host, PDVs alter the host's immune system to prevent encapsulation and destruction of the wasp egg, allowing the wasp larva to develop within the host. The PDV genome also encodes various proteins that can manipulate the host's physiology and development, providing nutrients for the developing wasp larvae.

Overall, Polydnaviridae is a fascinating example of a virus-insect symbiosis that has evolved over millions of years to benefit both the wasp and the virus.

The Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (WASP) family is a group of proteins that play crucial roles in actin cytoskeleton regulation, which is essential for various cellular processes such as cell motility, membrane trafficking, and immune synapse formation. The family includes WASP, N-WASP (Neural WASP), WAVE1 (WASP-family verprolin homologous protein 1), WAVE2, WAVE3, and WHAMM (WASP Homology Associated with Actin, Membranes and Microtubules). These proteins share a common structural feature called the WASP homology domain 2 (WH2) that binds to actin monomers, and a C-terminal verprolin homology domain (VHD) that interacts with various regulatory factors. Mutations in the gene encoding WASP can lead to Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, an X-linked recessive disorder characterized by microthrombocytopenia, eczema, and recurrent infections.

Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (WASP), Neuronal is not a well-defined medical term or concept. WASP is a protein that plays a crucial role in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton dynamics, primarily in hematopoietic cells. However, there are several WASP family proteins, including Neural Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (N-WASP), which is widely expressed and has been implicated in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton dynamics in neurons.

Neuronal N-WASP (N-WASP, Neuronal) is a protein that belongs to the Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein family and is primarily expressed in neurons. It plays an essential role in regulating actin cytoskeleton dynamics during synaptic plasticity, which is critical for learning and memory processes. N-WASP interacts with various proteins to control the formation of filamentous actin (F-actin) structures required for neuronal morphogenesis, including dendritic spine development and maintenance.

In summary, Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (WASP), Neuronal is not a well-defined term, but Neuronal N-WASP refers to the protein that belongs to the WASP family and is primarily expressed in neurons, playing an essential role in regulating actin cytoskeleton dynamics during synaptic plasticity.

Actin-related protein 2 (ARP2) is a subunit of the Arp2/3 complex, which is a key regulator of actin dynamics and plays a crucial role in the formation of branched actin networks. The Arp2/3 complex is composed of seven subunits, including ARP2 and ARP3, which are structurally similar to actin and can form a heterodimer that acts as a nucleation site for new actin filaments.

ARP2 and the other subunits of the Arp2/3 complex are highly conserved across species and are involved in various cellular processes, such as cell motility, cytokinesis, endocytosis, and maintenance of cell shape. Mutations in genes encoding ARP2 or other subunits of the Arp2/3 complex have been associated with various human diseases, including neurological disorders and immunodeficiencies.

Oviposition is a medical/biological term that refers to the process of laying or depositing eggs by female organisms, including birds, reptiles, insects, and fish. In humans and other mammals, the term is not applicable since they give birth to live young rather than laying eggs.

Actin-related protein 2/3 (Arp2/3) is a complex of seven proteins that plays a crucial role in the regulation of actin dynamics within cells. The Arp2/3 complex is involved in the nucleation and branching of actin filaments, which are important for various cellular processes such as cell motility, cytokinesis, and vesicle trafficking.

Actin-related protein 3 (Arp3) is one of the subunits that make up the Arp2/3 complex. It is a conserved protein found in eukaryotic cells and is essential for the formation of new actin filaments. The Arp3 subunit, along with the Arp2 subunit, forms the structural core of the complex and is responsible for initiating the formation of new actin filaments by binding to existing filaments and creating a branch point.

The Arp2/3 complex is regulated by various proteins, including nucleation-promoting factors (NPFs), which activate the complex and promote actin polymerization. Dysregulation of the Arp2/3 complex has been implicated in several diseases, including cancer and neurological disorders.

Host-parasite interactions refer to the relationship between a parasitic organism (the parasite) and its host, which can be an animal, plant, or human body. The parasite lives on or inside the host and derives nutrients from it, often causing harm in the process. This interaction can range from relatively benign to severe, depending on various factors such as the species of the parasite, the immune response of the host, and the duration of infection.

The host-parasite relationship is often categorized based on the degree of harm caused to the host. Parasites that cause little to no harm are called commensals, while those that cause significant damage or disease are called parasitic pathogens. Some parasites can even manipulate their hosts' behavior and physiology to enhance their own survival and reproduction, leading to complex interactions between the two organisms.

Understanding host-parasite interactions is crucial for developing effective strategies to prevent and treat parasitic infections, as well as for understanding the ecological relationships between different species in natural ecosystems.

'Nesting behavior' is not a term typically used in medical definitions. However, it can be described as a type of behavior often observed in pregnant women, particularly close to their due date, where they have an intense desire to clean and organize their living space in preparation for the arrival of their baby. This behavior is considered a normal part of pregnancy and is not usually regarded as a medical condition.

In some cases, healthcare providers may use the term 'nesting' to describe a symptom of certain mental health disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Mania, where an individual may experience an intense urge to clean and organize their environment, but it is often accompanied by other symptoms that interfere with daily functioning.

Therefore, the definition of 'nesting behavior' can vary depending on the context in which it is used.

The Actin-Related Protein 2-3 (Arp2/3) complex is a group of seven proteins that play a crucial role in the regulation of actin dynamics within cells. The complex is composed of two actin-related proteins, Arp2 and Arp3, as well as five other subunits (ARPC1-5).

The primary function of the Arp2/3 complex is to initiate the formation of new actin filaments by nucleating and branching off from existing ones. This process helps in various cellular processes such as cell motility, cytokinesis, and vesicle trafficking. The activation of the Arp2/3 complex is tightly regulated by various proteins, including nucleation-promoting factors (NPFs), which bind to and stimulate the complex to induce actin polymerization.

Dysregulation of the Arp2/3 complex has been implicated in several human diseases, such as cancer and neurological disorders, highlighting its importance in maintaining proper cellular functions.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "pollination" is not a term typically used in medical definitions. Pollination is a process in biology, specifically in botany, that refers to the transfer of pollen from the male reproductive organ (anther) of a flower to the female reproductive organ (stigma) of the same or another flower, leading to fertilization and the production of fruits and seeds.

If you have any medical terms or concepts in mind, please provide them so I can offer an accurate definition or explanation.

Actin is a type of protein that forms part of the contractile apparatus in muscle cells, and is also found in various other cell types. It is a globular protein that polymerizes to form long filaments, which are important for many cellular processes such as cell division, cell motility, and the maintenance of cell shape. In muscle cells, actin filaments interact with another type of protein called myosin to enable muscle contraction. Actins can be further divided into different subtypes, including alpha-actin, beta-actin, and gamma-actin, which have distinct functions and expression patterns in the body.

A social hierarchy in the context of medicine and public health often refers to the organization of individuals or groups based on their relative status, power, or influence within a society or community. This structure can have significant implications for health outcomes and access to care. For instance, those with higher socioeconomic status (SES) tend to have better health and longer lifespans than those with lower SES, due in part to factors such as better access to healthcare, nutritious food, safe housing, and educational opportunities.

Social hierarchies can also intersect with other forms of inequality, such as racism, sexism, and ableism, to create additional barriers to health and well-being for marginalized communities. Understanding the role of social hierarchy in health is crucial for developing effective public health interventions and policies that address these underlying determinants of health.
