Nosema

(nō-sē'mă),
A protozoan genus (family Nosematidae, order Microsporida, phylum Microspora) with species (Nosema apis, Nosema bombycis, and others) pathogenic for invertebrates of economic importance (bees, silkworms); others are being studied as possible agents of biologic control of pest insects or other target invertebrates. N. connori infects human fat tissue, diaphragm, myocardium, liver, and other tissues of immunosuppressed people.

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.

The Pebrine disease related Nosema bombycis spore wall protein was detected at a hemin/GQ DNAzyme electrochemical biosensor [129], 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.
