- ... BACKGROUND: Pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum Harris) is one of the major pests in alfalfa crops, causing significant yield losses. (E)‐β‐farnesene (EβF), an alarm pheromone released by pea aphid, is generic to many species of aphids, and is used to minimize potential danger from predators and parasitoids by avoiding the source of the pheromone. RESULTS: In this study, EβF synthase gene was construct ...
