- ... Insects are able to develop enhanced resistance in response to repeated infection. This phenomenon is called immune priming. In this work, so-called “primed” Galleria mellonella larvae were re-infected with a lethal dose of Candida albicans 48 h after injection of a non-lethal dose, while “non-primed” larvae were infected only with a lethal dose. The increased resistance of the primed larvae corre ...

- ... Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, commonly known as Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), transmits the bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), one of the causative agents of Huanglongbing (HLB) to citrus trees. Within ACP populations, three adult abdominal color polymorphisms: gray/brown, blue/green, and orange/yellow have been described. Despite the economic importance of this insect, the molecular m ...
