Preventing Baby Bugs
FAIRFAX, Va. (September 2, 2013) – A new study from researchers at Kansas State University identifies a protein that, when suppressed, prevents insect from being able to mate. Without this protein, it seems as though males cannot send a strong enough signal to get a female’s attention. The researchers used three different types of insects in the experiment, including fruit flies, but the protein is found in all insects.
