Bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of Whiteflies. Reactions between plant-sucking insects and the bacteriocyte-associater sucked. Michael Wagner recognized as Highly Cited Researcher On the medically important insects in the danjo islands japan especially on the larval habitats the blood sucking habits and trans oceanic flight of the blood sucking insects.

Implications for host-plant resistance to sap-sucking insects. Sucking insexts of primary importance. Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects. The investigation of additional adelgid species and genomic analysis of the identified symbionts will help to further extend our understanding of the evolution of this symbiosis and the role of the bacterial symbionts in this association.

Sucking insects of cotton plants: We are currently studying the bacterial symbionts of two insect groups, adelgids Adelgidae and mealybugs Pseudococcidae. We found that adelgids contain a surprising diversity of bacterial symbionts suggesting a complex evolutionary history for this symbiosis, which involved co-evolution as well as multiple infection events and symbiont replacement. Biology of blood-sucking insects abcteriocyte-associated review.


The symbionts of mealybugs show a unique feature which makes this symbiosis different from all other known symbioses: Biology of bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects. The genetic properties of the primary endosymbionts of mealybugs differ from those of other endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects.

Interactions between plant-sucking insects and the plant tissues fed on by them. Research Interspecies hydrogen transfer in the mammalian gut: Symbiosis with bacteria thus is a key factor driving the ecology and the evolution of insects.

The two phylogenetically different bacterial symbionts of mealybugs are not located in the same or neighboring bacteriocytes, but one symbiont Tremblaya princeps contains the other symbiont, which lives directly within its cytoplasm.

The adelgids are a sister group of aphids Aphididaethe probably best studied groups of insects with respect to bacterial symbionts. Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects Symbiosis.

Biology bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects.

On the medically important insects in the Danjo Islands, especially on the larval habitats, the blood-sucking habits and transoceanic flight of the blood-sucking insects. The presence of heritable bacterial endosymbionts in insects is widespread in nature. Adelgids are plant sap bacteruocyte-associated insects which exclusively feed on conifers, and whose symbionts are only poorly characterized so far.
