Disease relevance of Muscidae


High impact information on Muscidae


Chemical compound and disease context of Muscidae


Biological context of Muscidae


Anatomical context of Muscidae

  • Fly mortality occurred in the larval stages, and the bioassay for feces from cattle given monensin at 200 mg/head daily showed an average of 19.9 and 23.3% fewer (P less than .01) face fly and horn fly pupae, respectively, than were recovered from feces of the untreated cattle [18].

Associations of Muscidae with chemical compounds


Gene context of Muscidae

  • HieACE, a soluble 70 kDa protein related to the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) has recently been identified, characterized and cloned from the adult buffalo fly (Haematobia irritans exigua) [24].
  • The result indicated that this newly identified proprotein convertase is of importance for the proteolytic maturation of thrombostasin, a protein secreted in horn fly saliva and used by the insect to counteract its host's haemostatic response [25].
  • Given the structural identities of the kinins and CRF-like diuretic hormones of these Dipteran species, the housefly can serve as a model insect for the study of diuretic peptides and their functions in the stable fly and horn fly, both livestock pests [26].
  • Both the coding sequences and patterns of expression of Gsp1 and Gsp2 genes are similar to the serine proteases that have been reported from the bloodfeeding insect Stomoxys calcitrans [27].
  • Purification and characterization of chitinase from the stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans [28].
