  • aphid
  • The inventory of metabolic genes in the pea aphid genome suggests that there is extensive metabolite exchange between the aphid and Buchnera, including sharing of amino acid biosynthesis between the aphid and Buchnera. (ugent.be)
  • By both methods, the -proteobacterium Buchnera was detected in laboratory cultures of six parthenogenetic lines of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum and one line of the black bean aphid Aphis fabae, and one or more of four previously described bacterial taxa were also detected in all aphid lines except one of A. pisum.

  • plant
  • Buchnera americana, commonly known as American bluehearts or bupleurum, is a locally endangered herbaceous perennial plant of the broomrape family orobanchaceae. (wikipedia.org)
  • Buchnera americana is a perennial flowering plant with underground rhizomes and an above-ground stem. (wikipedia.org)
  • Buchnera also increases the transmission of plant viruses by producing symbionin, a protein that binds to the viral coat and protects it inside the aphid. (wikipedia.org)
  • produce
  • However, unlike most other Gram-negative bacteria, Buchnera lacks the genes to produce lipopolysaccharides for its outer membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • various
  • The genomes of various Buchnera genomes are in the range of 600 to 650 kb and encode on the order of 500 to 560 proteins. (wikipedia.org)
