Insect immunity: Induction of cecropin and attacin-like antibacterial factors in the haemolymph of Glossina morsitans morsitans
(University of Nairobi., 1987)
Injections of live Escherichia coli into adult tsetse flies, Glossina morsitans morsitans induced an antibacterial activity in the haemolymph after a lag period of 6–18 hr. Peak activity occurred after 24–72 hr with a dose ...
Microorganisms associated with tsetse in nature: Preliminary results on isolation, identification and pathogenicity
(University of Nairobi., 1990-06)
Six genera of bacteria: Serratia, Providencia, Enterobacter, Aeromonas, Cedecea and Bacillus were isolated from field-collected G. pallidipes. Four genera: Serratia, Providencia, Enterobacter and Aeromonas were isolated ...
Fecundity and survival of tsetse maintained on immunized rabbits
(University of Nairobi., 1982-09)
Female Glossina morsitans morsitans maintained on rabbits previously immunized with whole tsetse body (WTB), engorged tsetse guts (ETG) or gravid tsetse uteri (GTU) for three successive generations showed no increase in ...
Cuticular lesions: a non-infectious integumental disease of Glossina species
(University of Nairobi., 1981-12)
Purified suspensions of macerated cuticular lesions from the insectary-reared tsetse Glossina morsitans morsitans were applied on laboratory-reared newly emerged teneral tsetse by three pathways: topical application on the ...
Some aspects of sexual receptivity and refractory behaviour in female Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood
(University of Nairobi., 1993-12)
Sexual receptivity was investigated in female Ghssina morsitans morsitans Westwood after mating. The degree of insemination and duration of copulation could affect sexual receptivity when females mate with immature males. ...
Further observations on survival and fertility of Glossina morsitans morsitans maintained on immunized rabbits
(University of Nairobi., 1984)
A significant increase in mortality was observed in Glossina morsitans morsitans maintained for approx. 45 days on rabbits immunized with tsetse or bovinetrypsin. Tsetse and bovine trypsin were observed to cross-react when ...
