    A Mathematical Model of Intra-Colony Spread of American Foulbrood in European Honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) American foulbrood (AFB) is one of the severe infectious diseases of European honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) and other Apis species. This disease is caused by a gram-positive, spore-forming...
  2. Scientific Studies / CCD / Neonics
    The First Paenibacillus larvae Bacteriophage Endolysin (PlyPl23) with High Potential to Control American Foulbrood Endolysins, which are peptidoglycan-degrading enzymes expressed during the terminal stage of the reproduction cycle of bacteriophages, have great potential to control Gram-positive...

    Transcriptional Response of Honey Bee Larvae Infected with the Bacterial Pathogen Paenibacillus larvae American foulbrood disease of honey bees is caused by the bacterium Paenibacillus larvae. Infection occurs per os in larvae and systemic infection requires a breaching of the host peritrophic...
