Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assays for rapid detection and differentiation of Nosema
apis and N.
(Microsporida: Nosematidae) species as potential biological control agents of Cactoblastis cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae): surveys for the microsporidia in Argentina and South Africa.
The fungus is known as Nosema
apis,ABC News reports.
The conference is split into seven-session over the course of three days, with each session covering a particular topic including the economics of bees, bee races and rooting, bee management and cell health, bee environments, cell products, Nosema
and bee health, and health issues of bees.
Opportunistic properties of Nosema
algerae (Microspora), a mosquito parasite, in immunocompromised mice.
In addition, when taken to the hive together with the nectar and pollen, they may affect the development of larvae, and they may also harm the immunological system of bees, increasing the infections by diseases such as the one caused by Nosema
cerane (PETTIS et al., 2013).
Previous research has shown that chlorothalonil is linked to a fungal parasite called Nosema
bombi that affects bumblebees.
High quality diets in honey bees have been shown to reduce stress in bees exposed to Nosema
apis Zander , Nosema
ceranae Fries et al.
Over the years, the use of sulfonamides has also been tried against European foulbrood (Melissococcus plutonius) and recently in the fight against nosemosis (Nosema
The Pebrine disease related Nosema
bombycis spore wall protein was detected at a hemin/GQ DNAzyme electrochemical biosensor , using the amplification of hemin/GQ DNAzyme functionalized with Pt-Pd nanowires, that again acted as both NADH oxidase and peroxidase, the sensor exhibiting good linear range and detection limit.
Honeybee nosemosis, produced by Nosema
ceranae and Nosema
apis, is a serious disease which develops diarrhea, reducing honey production, increased mortality in winter and underdeveloped colony passed through illness (Brenna, E., Fell, R., 2011, Cox-Foster, D.
