    Notes: Insect endoparasitoids are able to circumvent the defense reactions of their habitual hosts. In the ichneumonid wasp Venturia canescens, viruslike particles found on the egg surface are responsible for the protection of the parasitoid against the encapsulation reaction of the host. Some of the particle proteins are structurally and probably functionally related to a protein in the host caterpillar Ephestia kühniella. The host protein is synthesized in hemocytes and fat body in low amounts and can be induced together with other proteins to higher levels of protein synthesis after bacterial infection. Hemocytes that show an increased expression of protein(s) are less likely to attach to a glass surface and are not involved in spreading.

    Notes: Virus-like particles (VLPs) that are bound to the egg surface of a parasitic wasp Venturia canescens are void of nucleic acid and unable to infect host tissue but instead provide a passive protection against the host's immune recognition. To investigate evolutionary and functional properties of Venturia particles, we isolated cDNAs coding for a VLP-protein by screening an expression library of the wasp, using antibodies against purified VLPs. The corresponding coding DNA is present in the wasp genome as a single-copy gene. © 1994 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

    Notes: Insect endoparasitoids are able to circumvent the defense reactions of their habitual hosts. In a hymenopteran wasp species, virus-like particles, found on the egg surface are responsible for the protection against the encapsulation reaction of the host caterpillar. Some of the particle proteins are structurally and probably functionally related to host protein(s). Biological properties of some of the host proteins suggest that they might be involved in the insect defense reaction.
