    • Bacterially expressed dsRNA induces Varroa destructor gene knockdown by honey bee-mediated oral administration 

      Muntaabski, Irina; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla; Liendo, María Clara; Niz, José María; Russo, Romina Maria; Salvador, Ricardo (Taylor and Francis, 2022-02)
      The ectoparasite Varroa destructor causes serious losses of Apis mellifera colonies and negatively impacts the beekeeping industry around the world. New control methods have been proposed based on the RNA interference ...
    • Genetic variation and heteroplasmy of Varroa destructor inferred from ND4 mtDNA sequences 

      Muntaabski, Irina; Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Palacio, María Alejandra; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Springer, 2020-02)
      Varroa destructor, a parasitic mite of the western honey bee, Apis mellifera L., is a serious threat to colonies and beekeeping worldwide. Population genetics studies of the mite have provided information on two mitochondrial ...
    • Grooming Behavior in Naturally Varroa-Resistant Apis mellifera Colonies From North-Central Argentina 

      Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Landi, Lucas; Pietronave, Hernan Pablo; Merke, Julieta; Fain, Hernan Carlos; Muntaabski, Irina; Palacio, María Alejandra; Rodriguez, Graciela Adriana; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Frontiers Media, 2020-10-22)
      The Western honey bee, Apis mellifera, is an important species in providing honey and pollination services globally. The mite Varroa destructor is the major threat to A. mellifera, and it is associated with the severe ...
    • El grooming: enemigo de la varroa 

      Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Landi, Lucas; Pietronave, Hernan Pablo; Merke, Julieta; Muntaabski, Irina; Palacio, María Alejandra; Rodriguez, Graciela Adriana; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Sociedad Argentina de Apicultores, 2021-07)
      Una de las enfermedades que mayores pérdidas ocasiona a la industria apícola es la Varroosis, causada por el ácaro Varroa destructor. La selección de colonias por el comportamiento de grooming puede ser una respuesta a ...
    • Identification and characterization of soluble binding proteins associated with host foraging in the parasitoid wasp Diachasmimorpha longicaudata 

      Wulff, Juan Pedro; Segura, Diego Fernando; Devescovi, Francisco; Muntaabski, Irina; Milla, Fabian Horacio; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz (Plos, 2021-06)
      The communication and reproduction of insects are driven by chemical sensing. During this process, chemical compounds are transported across the sensillum lymph to the sensory neurons assisted by different types of soluble ...
    • Transcriptome analysis of Anastrepha fraterculus sp. 1 males, females, and embryos: insights into development, courtship, and reproduction 

      Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla; Conte, Claudia Alejandra; Rivarola, Maximo Lisandro; Wulff, Juan Pedro; Muntaabski, Irina; Ribone, Andrés Ignacio; Milla, Fabian Horacio; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz (BioMed Central, 2020-12)
      Anastrepha fraterculus sp. 1 is considered a quarantine pest in several American countries. Since chemical control applied in an integrated pest management program is the only strategy utilized against this pest, the ...
