Fight to protect Europe’s agriculture from devastating pest

Historic olive groves and a huge variety of other plants are at risk from a highly destructive invasive pathogen. XF-ACTORS brought together international expertise promoting a fruitful exchange and development of knowledge among different experts and disciplines that will help growers to manage the pest and prevent further economic losses in crops. The plant pathogen […]

Vibrational playbacks and microscopy to study the signalling behaviour and female physiology of Philaenus spumarius

Authors: Sabina Avosani, Pietro Franceschi, Marco Ciolli, Vincenzo Verrastro, Valerio Mazzoni. Publication: 02 March 2021 Abstract: The meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius, vector of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa, relies on vibrational communication to accomplish mating: the female calls to establish a duet with a male. A deeper knowledge of the species’ reproductive biology and behaviour would […]

Detection and Diagnosis of Xylella fastidiosa by Specific Monoclonal Antibodies

Authors: Gorris, MT; Sanz, A; Penalver, J; Lopez, MM; Colomer, M; Marco-Noales, E Publication: 28 December 2020 Abstract: Monoclonal antibodies (MAb) specific to Xylella fastidiosa were obtained through hybridoma technology using heat-treated somatic O antigens from LMG 17159strain. Ten stable hybrydoma clones secreting MAb were selected and their isotype was determined. The MAbs 2G1/PPD, IgG1 showed specificity for X. […]

Pickin’ up good vibrations

The meadow spittlebug Philaenus spumarius – the vector of Xylella fastidiosa in olive orchards in Europe – communicates by emitting vibrational signals, which may have specific roles within the mating behavior. Using artificial signals to disturb insects’ sexual behavior is an option worth exploring to decrease reproduction rates, given that vibrational techniques have already given […]
