- ... The larvicidal effect of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschn.) Sorokin (Hyphomycetes) isolated in peridomestic areas in Central Brazil was tested in Aedes aegypti (L.) (Dipt., Culicidae), which is worldwide the primary vector for the viruses that cause human dengue and yellow fever. Highest susceptibility of larvae was found after application of suspended ungerminated conidia. However, conidia, which ...

- ... The characteristics and regeneration-restore of protoplasts and its karyotype of an insect pathological fungus, Metarhizium anisopliae var. majus were studied. Among the protoplasts, 25.3% were without a nucleus, and 74.7% contained a nucleus. Among the nucleus protoplasts, 53.6% contained a single nucleus. The regeneration-restore of protoplasts was of three distinct shapes. Considering the frequ ...
