Biology of bacteriocyte-associated endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects. This is fundamentally different from symbiosis between bacteria and aphids, where a single obligate symbiont, B. Nutrition of plant-sucking insects on chemically defined diets. Research Interspecies hydrogen transfer in the mammalian gut: The investigation of additional adelgid species and genomic analysis of the identified symbionts will help to further extend our understanding of the evolution of this symbiosis and the role of the bacterial symbionts in this association.

The symbionts of mealybugs show a unique feature which makes this symbiosis different from all other insefts symbioses: Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects Symbiosis. Tropical Medicine 15 1: The Quarterly Review of Biology Adelgids are plant sap feeding insects which exclusively feed on conifers, and whose symbionts are only poorly characterized so far.
Interactions between plant-sucking insects and the plant tissues fed on by them. Michael Wagner recognized as Highly Cited Researcher It also addresses fundamental questions such as the establishment and evolution of endobacterial symbiosis, which has implications for our understanding of early bacetriocyte-associated processes leading to the first eukaryotic cell.

We are currently studying the bacterial symbionts of two insect groups, adelgids Adelgidae and mealybugs Pseudococcidae. Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects. The genetic properties of the primary endosymbionts of mealybugs differ from those of other endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects.

Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects
The presence of heritable bacterial endosymbionts in insects is widespread in nature. We found that adelgids contain a surprising diversity of bacterial symbionts suggesting a complex evolutionary history for this symbiosis, which involved bacteriocyte-associared as well as multiple infection events and symbiont replacement.
The two phylogenetically different bacterial symbionts of mealybugs are not located in the same or neighboring bacteriocytes, but one symbiont Tremblaya princeps contains the other symbiont, which lives directly within its cytoplasm. Biology of blood-sucking insects book review.
Symbiosis with bacteria thus is a key factor driving the ecology and the evolution of insects.
