The Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly), Ceratitis capitata is a highly polyphagous pest, which infests multiple species of fruits and vegetables worldwide. In addition to the traditional control with chemical insecticides, sterile insect technique (SIT) has been implemented in integrated programs worldwide, and has become an essential measure for the control of this pest. A key issue for SIT is to release sterile males that are sufficiently competitive with males from the wild population. Using sequence information available in public databases, three novel picornaviruses infecting medflies were discovered and named as C...

The efficient regulation of intestinal immune responses is critical to colon health. Viruses, for example noraviruses, are key pathogens of the intestine. The lambda interferons (comprising three ligands: IFNL1, L2 and L3 - the so-called "Type III" interferons) constitute the most recently discovered IFN family and are known to be important in intestinal anti-viral defense. A fourth family member, IFNL4, was recently described. Expression of the IFN-lambda receptor is restricted to epithelial and immune cells; together, these ligands and their receptor represent an important anti-viral and immunoregulatory component of the immune/epithelial inteface...
