Shah, P.A.; J.A. Pickett; J.D. Vandenberg (1999) Responses of Russian wheat aphid (Homoptera: Aphididae) to aphid alarm pheromone. Environmental Entomology. 28(6): 983-985. ISSN: 0046-225X.

            NAL call number: QL461.E532

Abstract: In a series of laboratory test, Russian wheat aphids, Diuraphis noxia (mordvilko), responded to synthetic aphid alarm pheromone, (E)-beta-farnesene, by removing stylets and leaving feeding sites or by crawling out of test arenas. Late instars and adults were more responsive than early instars. In dose-response assays, EC50 estimates ranged from 0.94 to 8.95 mg/ml among 3 experiments. In arenas, D. noxia also responded to the proximity of cornicle-damaged nymphs of either the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (sulzer), or of D. noxia, which suggests endogenous production of alarm pheromone by D. noxia. Combinations of (E)-beta-farnesene and the aphid-pathogenic fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (wize) Brown and Smith did not enhance aphid mortality relative to controls treated with fungus only. Further studies involving appropriate formulations of (E)-beta-farnesene are necessary before practical biorational strategies can be devised combining this semiochemical and biological control agents.

            NAL call number: QL495.A1I57

Abstract: The silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia argentifolii, bellows and perring) accumulates sorbitol as a thermoprotectant in response to elevated temperature. Sorbitol synthesis in this insect is catalyzed by an unconventional ketose reductase (KR) that uses NADPH to reduce fructose. A cDNA encoding the NADPH-KR from adult B. argentifolii was cloned and sequenced to determine the primary structure of this enzyme. The cDNA encoded a protein of 352 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 38.2 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence of the cDNA shared 60% identity with sheep NAD(+)-dependent sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH). Residues in SDH involved in substrate binding were conserved in the whitefly NADPH-KR. An important structural difference between the whitefly NADPH-KR and NAD(+)-SDHs occurred in the nucleotide-binding site. The Asp residue that coordinates the adenosyl ribose hydroxyls in NAD(+)-dependent dehydrogenase (including NAD(+)-SDH), was replaced by an Ala in the whitefly NADPH-KR. The whitefly NADPH-KR also contained two neutral to Arg substitutions within four residues of the Asp to Ala substitution. Molecular modeling indicated that addition of the Arg residues and loss of the Asp decreased the electric potential of the adenosine ribose-binding pocket, creating an environment favorable for NADPH-binding. Because of the ability to use NADPH, the whitefly NADPH-KR synthesizes sorbitol under physiological conditions, unlike NAD(+)-SDHs, which function in sorbitol catabolism.

            NAL call number: 421 J822

Abstract: In a series of 39 field and laboratory experiments, relative resistance to green peach aphid (GPA), Myzus persicae (sulzer), was determined for 82 potato accessions representing 42 wild species. Field experiments were done at two locations in Minnesota and one location each in New York and Peru; laboratory experiments were done in Minnesota, England, and Peru. Aphid populations used were of five origins: Minnesota, New York, England, Puerto Rico, and Peru. Stability of green peach aphid resistance was consistent across test locations and GPA populations. No accession differed significantly from its overall mean resistance index in more than one test environment. Most significant deviations occurred in experiments with Peruvian and Puerto Rican GPA populations, although there was little evidence that either population represented biotypes different from the GPA populations of Minnesota, New York, or England. Apparently, if GPA-resistant breeding lines were developed, they could be used widely and this resistance would prove stable.
