Our study provides the first comprehensive reference transcriptome for the aphid parasitoid wasp Aphidius ervi obtained from females reared on three different aphid hosts: Supplemental Information Table S1 Complete lists of differentially aphodius genes for Aphidius apgidius Sampling design for RNA sequencing and differential expression analysis in the aphid parasitoid wasp Aphidius ervi.

Host-range evolution in Aphidius parasitoids: Transcriptomic differences between tissues and function of transcripts with different expression levels We used our filtered transcriptome as a reference dataset to perform Differential Expression DE analysis for A.

It has been put forward that a developmental reorganization from ancestral phenotypes due to new environmental input or conditions host races or host biotypes in this case does not necessarily require new mutations to produce novel or distinct phenotypes West-Eberhard, Host-adapted parasitoids in biological control: Acceptance and suitability of Acyrthosiphon pisum and Apnidius avenae as hosts of the aphid parasitoid Aphidius ervi Hymenoptera: Residual broad spectrum insecticides should not be used for at least four weeks prior to the release of Ervi.

Filtered transcriptomic assembly is available at: Parasitizes also the tobacco aphid Myzus persicae var. A Aphidisu population rearing.

Aphidius ervi

Most parasitoids used for controlling revi are endoparasitoids, which lay eggs inside their host as part of their life cycle and eventually killing it. Despite its widespread use in applied and fundamental research, no genomic or transcriptomic information are available for A. We also stock a range of traps and monitoring tools. The recent introduction of a small number of individuals and natural occurrence of A.


However, they have at the same time the problem to overcome or avoid different defense mechanisms of their varied host species in order to survive through adulthood Jones et alhidius. Description and life cycle Ervi are black and about mm long.

Ervi (Aphidius ervi) – Biological Services, Australia

Behavioral experiments using the same laboratory populations from which the individuals of our transcriptome experiment were taken, showed that A.

Ervi Aphidius ervi Aphidius ervi Ervi will parasitise a number of aphid species but is most commonly used to help control large aphid species such as Aulacorthum solani foxglove or glasshouse potato aphidMacrosiphum euphorbiae potato aphidand Acrythosiphum sp. Diversity, frequency and geographic distribution of facultative bacterial endosymbionts in introduced aphid pests. You want to visit the website of Koppert USA, click here.

Adaptive evolution of a generalist parasitoid: Specialization, speciation, and radiation: When novel genetic variants are fixed within populations, those variants could limit phenotypic plasticity, so individuals can no longer easily switch between different phenotypes due to trade-offs and constraints i.

These results point towards a significant rewiring of the transcriptome of A. Braconidae reveals genes involved in successful parasitism. Pea aphids from both alfalfa and pea races were maintained in the laboratory on broad bean Vicia faba L.

Published online Aug Thus, three different and highly inbred A. Toggle navigation Biological Services, Australia. However, it is unclear how much phenotypic plasticity the parasitoid needs to exploit different hosts or whether they can use identical mechanisms and strategies when parasitizing different hosts.


Jean-Christophe Simon reviewed drafts of the paper.

Early presence of an enolase in the aphidiius injecta of the aphid parasitoid Aphidius ervi analyzed with chitosan beads as artificial hosts. Here, we determined the effect of aphid host species Sitobion avenae versus Acyrthosiphon pisum reared on two different host plants alfalfa and pea on the transcriptome of adult A.

We found several significantly differentially expressed genes involved in chemical perception between our three A. De novo construction of an expanded transcriptome assembly for the western tarnished plant bug, Lygus hesperus. Raw transcriptomic data is available under BioProject ID: The relationship between host selection behaviour and offspring fitness in a koinobiont parasitoid. Calmodulin affects sensitization of Drosophila melanogaster odorant receptors.

The adult parasite emerges through a round hole at the rear of the mummy. Differential gene expression analysis The insect filtered, non-redundant reference transcriptome was used as a basis for differential gene expression studies between tissues separate for head and body Fig.

The abilities of the aphid parasitoids Aphidius ervi Haliday and A. Loss of host fidelity in highly inbred populations of the parasitoid wasp Aphidius ervi Hymenoptera: All differentially expressed transcripts were annotated using the results from BlastX alignments while GO terms were assigned using Blast2GO mapping results, which in turn was used to identify the functions of genes displaying different expression patterns between populations and tissues Figs.
