Environmental and genetic control of the larval diapause of the southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella

, : Environmental and genetic control of the larval diapause of the southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella. Physiological Entomology, 71: 99-110

The interaction of photoperiod and temperature in the regulation of the induction and termination of the larval diapause of Diatraea grandiosella Dyar was examined. A population originating from south-eastern Missouri had critical daylengths for diapause induction of about 15 h 5 min (ecological threshold) and 11 h (physiological threshold). The ecological threshold was more stable than the physiological threshold at temperatures lower than 25 deg C.

Low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) is a cell-surface receptor that plays a central role in regulating cholesterol levels. Increased levels of LDLR would lead to reduced cholesterol levels and contribute to strategies designed to treat hyperch...

We present microcanonical replica exchange molecular dynamics simulations as an alternative to canonical ones. Its advantage is the easily tunable high acceptance rate for replica exchange. We present the theory, comment on its actual implementati...
