    • Aedes fluviatilis cell lines as new tools to study metabolic and immune interactions in mosquito‑Wolbachia symbiosis 

      Calixto, Christiano; Silva, Jhenifer N.; Sampaio, Angélica Fernandes Arcanjo; Nogueira, Cintia Lopes; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Oliveira, Pedro Lagerblad de; Gondim, Katia Calp; Moraes, Bruno; Carvalho, Stephanie Serafim de; Silva, Renato Martins da; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Moreira, Luciano A.; Logullo, Carlos (2021) [Journal article]
      In the present work, we established two novel embryonic cell lines from the mosquito Aedes fluviatilis containing or not the naturally occurring symbiont bacteria Wolbachia, which were called wAflu1 and Aflu2, respectively. ...
    • Carbohydrate metabolic compensation coupled to high tolerance to oxidative stress in ticks 

      Noce, Bárbara Pitta Della; Uhl, Marcelle Vianna de Carvalho; Machado, Josias A.; Waltero, Camila Fernanda; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Silva, Renato Martins da; Fonseca, Rodrigo N. da; Barros, Cintia Monteiro de; Sabadin, Gabriela Alves; Konnai, Satoru; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Ohashi, Kazuhiko; Logullo, Carlos (2019) [Journal article]
    • Germ band retraction as a landmark in glucose metabolism during Aedes aegypti embryogenesis 

      Vital, Wagner; Rezende, Gustavo; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Moraes, Jorge; Lemos, Francisco; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Logullo, Carlos (2010) [Journal article]
      Background: The mosquito A. aegypti is vector of dengue and other viruses. New methods of vector control are needed and can be achieved by a better understanding of the life cycle of this insect. Embryogenesis is a part ...
    • Non-invasive delivery of dsRNA into de-waxed tick eggs by electroporation 

      Ruiz, Newton; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Parizi, Luis Fernando; Kim, Tae Kwon; Mulenga, Albert; Braz, Glória Regina Cardoso; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Logullo, Carlos (2015) [Journal article]
      RNA interference-mediated gene silencing was shown to be an efficient tool for validation of targets that may become anti-tick vaccine components. Here, we demonstrate the application of this approach in the validation of ...
    • Redox imbalance induces remodeling of glucose metabolism in Rhipicephalus microplus embryonic cell line 

      Noce, Bárbara Pitta Della; Silva, Renato Martins da; Uhl, Marcelle Vianna de Carvalho; Konnai, Satoru; Ohashi, Kazuhiko; Calixto, Christiano; Sampaio, Angélica Fernandes Arcanjo; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Carvalho, Stephanie Serafim de; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Logullo, Carlos (2022) [Journal article]
      Carbohydrate metabolism not only functions in supplying cellular energy but also has an important role in maintaining physiological homeostasis and in preventing oxidative damage caused by reactive oxygen species. Previously, ...
    • The modulation of the symbiont/host interaction between wolbachia pipientis and aedes fluviatilis embryos by glycogen metabolism 

      Fernandes, Mariana da Rocha; Martins, Renaldo T.; Costa, Evenilton P.; Pacidônio, Etiene Casagrande; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Moreira, Luciano A.; Fonseca, Rodrigo N. da; Logullo, Carlos (2014) [Journal article]
      Wolbachia pipientis, a maternally transmitted bacterium that colonizes arthropods, may affect the general aspects of insect physiology, particularly reproduction. Wolbachia is a natural endosymbiont of Aedes fluviatilis, ...
    • TOR as a regulatory target in Rhipicephalus microplus embryogenesis 

      Waltero, Camila Fernanda; Abreu, Leonardo Araujo de; Santos, Thayná Alonso dos; Fonseca, Rodrigo N. da; Vaz Junior, Itabajara da Silva; Logullo, Carlos (2019) [Journal article]
      Embryogenesis is a metabolically intensive process carried out under tightly controlled conditions. The insulin signaling pathway regulates glucose homeostasis and is essential for reproduction in metazoan model species. ...
