    Peptide Feeding and Mechanical Wounding for Tomato Seedlings
    Authors:  Lei Wang, Yan Wang and Georg Felix, date: 03/20/2019, view: 1570, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Plants need to respond appropriately to wounding and herbivorous insects. Peptide signals have been implicated in local and systemic induction of appropriate plant defense responses. To study these peptide signals and their perception in host plants, it is important to have reproducible bioassays. Several assays, such as treatment of peptide ...
    Quantification of Serotonin in Rice and Insect Pest and its Functional Analysis in Insects Using Artificial Diet Feeding
    Authors:  Long Wang, Xiaohao Guo, Wenqian Huang, Haiping Lu and Qing-yao Shu, date: 02/20/2019, view: 992, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Rice is one of the world’s most important crops, but its production suffers from insect pests. Rice brown planthopper (BPH; Nilaparvata lugens Stål) and striped stem borer (SSB, Chilo suppressalis Walker) are the two most serious pests in rice production. We reported that serotonin is an essential mediator in the interaction ...
    Arabidopsis-Green Peach Aphid Interaction: Rearing the Insect, No-choice and Fecundity Assays, and Electrical Penetration Graph Technique to Study Insect Feeding Behavior

    [Abstract] Aphids constitute a large group of Hemipterans that use their slender stylets to tap into the sieve elements of plants from which they consume copious amounts of phloem sap, thus depriving the plant of photoassimilates. Some aphids also transmit viral diseases of plants. Myzus persicae Sülzer, commonly known as the green peach aphid ...
