S12A). (C) Mutation of the three AUGs within the ORF of 38 amino acids of the Ya1 transcript into UAG stop codons. Therefore, genes in this module may be involved in shared biological processes and were further investigated.

Host plants for some aphids can be identified by a particular aphid’s common name. The module also includes several protein-coding genes with similarities to hemolymph juvenile hormone binding and WD40 and EGF-like domain-containing proteins that have roles in signal transduction in insects. Translocation and systemic migration of aphid transcripts in plants were determined by caging a leaf section with aphids and detecting aphid transcripts in the caged area (feeding site), next to the caged area of the same leaf (near-feeding site), and on a distal leaf (distal site). Adult aphids may or may not be winged. Photo by: Whitney Cranshaw, Colorado State University; Bugwood.org. Adults: The small adult green peach aphid is light to dark green or pink, with red eyes. Our 3′ rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) experiments showed that the Ya1 transcript has a poly(A) tail (SI Appendix, Fig. (B) Schematic overview of Ya1 transcripts, showing the locations of primers used for amplification in the RT-PCR experiment of C. (C) RT-PCR of Ya1 transcripts in aphids and aphid-exposed A. thaliana Col-0 plants. The pairs belong to the same or different phylogenetic clusters of the Ya phylogenetic tree. Moreover, aphid reproduction increases on plants that stably produce the M. persicae Ya1 RNA. In the early spring, overwintering eggs hatch, and nymphs cause damage by feeding on buds, flowers, young foliage as well as stems. It appears that the genes responsible for helping aphids adjust to different plants are found in clusters within the genome and are rapidly increased or decreased in two days of transfer to a new host plant species. Aphids are soft-bodied, sucking insects that are sometimes called plant lice.

This allows high levels of survival in areas with inclement weather, and favors ready transport on plant material. Here we build on our previously reported data, taking advantage of the ability of M. persicae to colonize divergent plant species to better understand how aphids colonize plants. There are several species of aphids (all of which belong to the insect family Aphididae) that are capable of attacking any type of vegetation. The green peach aphid Myzus persicae causes yield losses of diverse crops and vectors more than 100 pathogens. [4], The green peach aphid is found worldwide, but is less tolerant of colder climates. A. thaliana actin 2 (AtActin2) and M. persicae elongation factor (MpEF) were used to control for the presence of RNA. The genes are organized in coexpression modules, 13 of which are enriched for DE genes, genes expressed in the salivary glands, and candidate lncRNAs. As the weather cools, aphids mate and lay their tiny (0.6 mm x 0.3 mm) oval eggs in crevices of the bark of Prunus trees. The computational workflow for M. persicae transcript annotation and lncRNA identification is shown in SI Appendix, Fig. Of the 1,984 genes that we identified as DE above, 1,364 (68%) were included among the genes of the 77 coexpression modules, and 13 modules were enriched for DE genes (313 DE genes of the total DE genes [16%]; P < 0.05, Fisher’s exact test) (Fig. [11], Farmers usually fight against the green peach aphid by taking efficacious cultural practice. (A) Schematic overview of the experimental setup with B. rapa (Br), A. thaliana (At), N. benthamiana (Nb), S. tuberosum (St), C. indicum (Ci), H. annuus (Ha), P. sativum (Ps), P. vulgaris (Pv), and Zea mays (Zm). S19), indicating that the Ya1 RNA transcript modulates plant processes that lead to increased M. persicae fecundity. Prolonged aphid infestation can cause appreciable reduction in yield of root crops and foliage crops. In some parasite–host interactions, a large number of long transcripts (>200 nt) were found in hosts, including RNA transcripts of Cryptosporidium parvum in the nuclei of human intestinal epithelial cells (40) and transcripts of C. pentagona that systemically migrate in Solanum lycopersicum and A. thaliana (41). Green peach aphid (Myzus persicae). M. persicae Ya genes were manually annotated by selecting gene models and corresponding transcripts that align to a conserved 148-bp nucleotide sequence among Ya transcripts (SI Appendix, Fig. [7][8] Many of its natural enemies can be used as biological control agents in certain crops, such as ladybirds (Coccinellidae) in radish crops, and the wasp Diaeretiella rapae in broccoli. S10), suggesting that the 30 Ya genes are coregulated. M. persicae Ya lncRNA promotes M. persicae colonization on A. thaliana.
