- ... Tropilaelaps mercedesae (Acari: Laelapidae) is an ectoparasite of the Western honey bee Apis mellifera and has become a major threat to the apiculture in Asia, including Korea. To establish gene resources of T. mercedesae, the whole transcriptome of mixed developmental stages of mites was analyzed by RNA sequencing. An mRNA-focused library was generated from total RNA extracted from the mixed stag ...

- ... Human body and head lice have been hematophagous ectoparasites of humans for thousands of years. Although both body and head lice belong to a single species, Pediculus humanus, only body lice are known to transmit several bacterial diseases to humans. This difference in vector competence is assumed to be due to their different immune responses. Here, the immune reactions in the alimentary tract we ...
