Biology bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking 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.

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 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.

Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects Symbiosis.

Sucking insects of primary importance. Michael Wagner recognized as Highly Cited Researcher Symbiosis with bacteria thus is a key factor driving the ecology and the evolution of insects. Search form Search this site. It also addresses fundamental questions such as the establishment and evolution of endobacterial symbiosis, which has implications for our understanding of early evolutionary processes leading to the first eukaryotic cell.


Biology of blood sucking insects. Implications for host-plant resistance to sap-sucking insects. 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. Interactions between plant-sucking insects and the plant tissues fed on by them.

The presence of heritable bacterial bacteriocyte-associated in insects is widespread in nature. The adelgids are a sister group of aphids Aphididaethe probably best studied groups of insects with respect to bacterial symbionts. Research Interspecies hydrogen transfer in the mammalian gut: This is fundamentally different from symbiosis between bacteria and aphids, where a single obligate symbiont, B.

We are currently studying the bacterial symbionts of two insect groups, adelgids Adelgidae and mealybugs Pseudococcidae. Nutrition of plant-sucking insects on chemically defined diets. Bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of Whiteflies.

The symbionts of mealybugs show a unique feature which makes this symbiosis different from all other known symbioses: Honeydew analysis for detecting phloem transport of plant natural products: How interactions between fermenters and hydrogenotrophs influence colonic homeostasis H2Gut Symbiont-mediated defense of amoebae against Legionella pneumophila – SymPathInfect The premature gut microbiome and the influence on neonatal immunity, brain development and white matter injury – The PreMiBraIn study Illuminating Functional Networks and Keystone Species in the Gut FunKeyGut Competition between the enteric pathogen Clostridium difficile and the commensal members of the gut microbiota for mucosal sugars.


Our work will contribute to a better understanding of this nested symbiosis and the biology of a group of mealybugs which occurs as a major pest all over the world. Journal endosymbiontx Chemical Ecology 16 6: 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.
