Nosema ceranae BRL01 (GCA_000182985) Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Nosema ceranae BRL01 (GCA_000182985)
Nosema ceranae is a microsporidian, a small, unicellular parasite that mainly affects Apis cerana, the Asiatic honey bee. Along with Nosema apis, it causes the disease nosemosis, the most widespread of the diseases of adult honey bees. N. ceranae can remain dormant as a long-lived spore which is resistant to temperature extremes and dehydration. This fungus has been shown to act in a synergistic fashion with diverse insecticides such as fipronil or neonicotinoids, by increasing the toxicity of pesticides for bees, leading to higher bee mortality. It may thus play an indirect role in colony collapse disorder.; In addition, the interaction between fipronil and Nosema ceranae induces changes in male physiology leading to sterility
