How a nematode can destroy insect immunity

How a nematode can destroy insect immunity

Invertebrate pathology and microbial control Proceedings of the III International Colloquium on invertebrate pathology, and XV Annual Meeting of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology, 6-10 September 1982, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK: 93-95

Preliminary studies on the substance produced by Neoaplectana carpocapsae which is responsible for the destruction of insect immune proteins are reported. The inhibitor was temperature sensitive: after 10 min at 53 deg C its activity was considerably decreased. In precipitation studies 75% of a given activity was regained from the 60 to 75% ammonium sulphate fraction.
