The first record of Beauveria bassiana (Deuteromycetes) on the hibernating pupae of Cameraria ohridella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae)
Poster Aug 18, 2009
Samples of the horse chestnut leaves with C. ohridella pupae were collected in autumn at Ceske Budejovice. The leaves were dissected and the pupae were individually placed into the 23°C and 95% R.H. Development of mycosis was frequently observed but only a few pupae were infected by B. bassiana. The strains of the fungus were isolated from individual pupae and deposited in Culture Collection of Entomopathogenic Fungi Olesna.
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified more than 100 genetic loci associated with type 2 diabetes. The majority of these are located in the intergenic or intragenic regions suggesting that the implicated variants may alter chromatin conformation. This, in turn, is likely to influence the expression of nearby or more remotely located genes to alter beta cell function. At present, however, detailed molecular and functional analyses are still lacking for most of these variants. We recently analysed one of these loci and mapped five causal variants in an islet-specific enhancer cluster within the STARD10 gene locus. Here, we aimed to understand how these causal variants influence b-cell function by alteration of the chromatin structure of enhancer clusterREAD MORE
Concern about the safety of food products has increased dramatically with intentionally and non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) used in packaging being of particular interest. APGC and high resolution MS together with a workflow driven process was used to identify unknown compounds in packaging.READ MORE
