福建农林大学(英文版)   发布时间: 2019-04-23   信息员:

Recently, the research team of Prof. Wei Taiyun from College of Plant Protection of FAFU published a paper titled “Viral pathogens hitchhike with insect sperm for paternal transmission” in the journal of Nature Communications (district JCR2, IF=12.353).

The paper revealed that the viral pathogens can be hitchhiked with male vector insect sperm and transmitted directly to its offspring, which provided a new pattern for predicting virus infection and exploring the control of the transmission of viral diseases by inhibiting the contact between viruses and male insect sperm.

Dr. Mao Qianzhuo and Dr. Wu Wei, both from State Key Laboratory of Ecological Pest Control for Fujian and Taiwan Crops and Vector-borne Virus Research Center of FAFU, were the first authors, Professor Wei Taiyun and Associate Professor Wei Jing were the corresponding authors of the paper.

The research was supported by the key projects of the National Natural Science Foundation and the key research projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China.
