L-Proline uptake in Crithidia deanei is influenced by its endosymbiont bacterium
Crithidia deanei, a monoxenic trypanosomatid, presents an endosymbiotic bacterium in its cytoplasm. Both the protozoan and the bacterium maintain intensive metabolic exchange, resulting in an interesting model to study the ...
Bacteriosomes in axenic plants: endophytes as stable endosymbionts
Observations of cells of axenic peach palm (Bactris gasipaes) microplants by light microscopy revealed movements of small particles within the cells. The phenomenon was characterized initially as Brownian movement, but ...
Changes in Endosymbiont Complexity Drive Host-Level Compensatory Adaptations in Cicadas
(NLM (Medline), 2018)
Copyright © 2018 Campbell et al. For insects that depend on one or more bacterial endosymbionts for survival, it is critical that these bacteria are faithfully transmitted between insect generations. Cicadas harbor two ...
Detection of wolbachia endosymbiont in population of Trichogramma pretiosum Riley, 1879 (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae).
(In: Congresso Brasileiro do Algodão, 9., 2013, Brasília, DF., 2013)
Fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis of endosymbiont genera reveals novel infection patterns in a tomato-infesting Bemisia tabaci population from Brazil.
(Tropical Plant Pathology, Brasília, DF, v. 40, n. 4, p. 233-243, Aug. 2015., 2015)
Diversity and Localization of Bacterial Endosymbionts from Whitefly Species Collected in Brazil
(Public Library Science, 2014-09-26)
Whiteflies (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) are sap-sucking insect pests, and some cause serious damage in agricultural crops by direct feeding and by transmitting plant viruses. Whiteflies maintain close associations with bacterial ...
Phylogenetic Validation of the Genera Angomonas and Strigomonas of Trypanosomatids Harboring Bacterial Endosymbionts with the Description of New Species of Trypanosomatids and of Proteobacterial Symbionts
(ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, 2011)
We comparatively examined the nutritional, molecular and optical and electron microscopical characteristics of reference species and new isolates of trypanosomatids harboring bacterial endosymbionts. Sequencing of the V7V8 ...
Population Dynamics and Growth Rates of Endosymbionts During Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera, Liviidae) Ontogeny
The infection density of symbionts is among the major parameters to understand their biological effects in host-endosymbionts interactions. Diaphorina citri harbors two bacteriome-associated bacterial endosymbionts (Candidatus ...
Effect of the symbiont Candidatus Erwinia dacicola on mating success of the olive fly Bactrocera oleae (Diptera: Tephritidae)
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-09)
Mutualistic bacterial endosymbionts provide many benefits to their insect hosts, but their role in mating has not been studied in the past. In this study, we examined copulatory success and mating latency as two parameters ...
