The result of the recent study revealed that the host kind (Artificial diet, Date and Fig) affect the Susceptibility of different insect stages of Fig moth Ephestia caute/la (Walk.) and CmTant moth Ephestia ca/ide/la (Gunee) to selected insect growth inhibitors (Diflubenzuron , Lufenuron, Cyromazine) Lufenuron was the most toxic inJ1ibitors against eggs of Fig moth reared on artificial diet and its LC50 value reached 0.0012 while the Cyromazine exhibit a less toxic effect on eggs of the same species reared on Fig and its LC 50 value reached 0.0075. The larvae ofFig moth showed a higher sensitivity to insect growth inJ1ibitors in comparison to Currant moth larvae reared on all hosts. The values of LC50 of insect growth inhibitors on pupae of Fig and currant most were varied according
to the diet kind and ins·ect species. Diflubenzuron and Cyromazine were more toxic to the adults of Fig moth reared on artificial diet while Cyromazine showed a higher toxic effect to the adults of Cunant moth reared on fig.

The effect of aqueous plant extracts of (Capparis spinosa L., leaves; Olea europea L., leaves; Dianthus chinensis, flowers; Mentha longifolia L., leaves and Melia azedarach, leaves and fruits) on the histology of the midgut of larvae and adult of Rusty flour beetle Tribolium castaneum (Herbst). & Khapra beetle Trogoderma granarium (Everts was studied. Results showed that the longitudinal muscles bundles began to disintegrate and sometimes disappear. The circular muscle layer became thinner, irregular, deattched from epithelial layer and even it underwent disruption. Also, cells of epithelial layer have undergone a great and clear disintegrator in many places. These effects have been noticed in the midgut of adult stage of khapra beetle. Histological preparations showed
the absence of peri trophic membrane in both beetles studied. The extracts have seriously affected the histological nature structure of the ovaries in khapra beetle reared from larvae previously treated with the extracts. The follicle cells became loose, separate from each other and then began to disintegrate, thus, becoming indistinguishable .Also vacuoles appeared at the peripherye of the oocyte which increases in number and size due to the isappearance of the yolk granules. Morphological abnormality appeared in ovarian follicles. They lose their
regular circular or oval form and become irregular, amoeboid, distorted or disintegrated. These effects have led to the decrease of the number of ovarioles. The effect was severe on the fat bodies. Their quantities became greatly decreased, and restricted in certain areas, and finally, almost disappeared around the ovaries.

This study was conducted to elucidate the effect of aqueous leaf extract
of Nerium oleander and fruit extract of Melia azedarach on nucleic acids
content and activity of some enzymes in Trichomonas vagina/is which
growth in Diamond's medium tryptone, yeast and maltose (TYM) media.
Results indicated that the exposure of T. vagina/is to IC50
concentration of N. oleander leaves and M azedarach fruits extracts
showed asignificant decrease in DNA content by 31.5% and 38.2%,
respectively, while the RNA content decreased by 28.3% and 50.7%,
respectively. Furthermore the totel.l. nucleic acids content decreased by
27.9% and 48.1% , respectively, compared with the untreated
trichomonads with plant extracts after 72 hours of growth.
The results of this study also indicated that T. vagina/is treated with
N. oleander leaves and M azedarach fruits extracts showed inhibed in the
activity of thymidine phosphorylase enzyme at rate 32.7% and 69.2%
respectively compared with untreated trichomonads with plant extracts
after 72 hours of growth.
From the results of this study, 1t is obvious that the above mentioned
extracts possess an inhibitory effect on nucleic acids and on the activity
of the enzyme Thymidine phosphorylase.

The effects of six aqueous plant extracts ( Capparis spinosa L., leaves; Olea europea L., leaves; Dianthus chinensis, flowers; Mentha longifolia L., leaves and Melia azedarach, leaves and ripe fruits) were studied on a number of biological aspects of Rusty flour beetle Tribolium casteneum (Herbst.) & Khapra beetle Trogoderma granarium (Everts) . Seven concentrations
(%0.5 d.O d.5 ,2.5 ,5 ,7.5 dO)
were used for each extract. Different effects on the larval longevity have been seen when using different extracts, concentrations and insects species .This study revealed that the extracts have significant affects on the number of larval instars. Some of them increased the number of moulting significantly as compared with that of control, moulting inhibition factor, therefore, appeared negative in khapra beetle larvae
Trogoderma granarium; whereas it was positive in most larval stages of rusty flour beetle Tribolium casteneum.
Larvae of rusty-red flour beetle failed to change to pupae stages, thus it remained under the exuvia and died. Also, khapra beetle larvae treated with (M azedarach) leaves and fruits extracts could not change to pupae.
Development duration was extended in most khapra beetle treatments due to the increasing of the larval longevity. Treating khapra beetle larvae with plant extracts increased the weight of pupae as compared to controls.
Sexual ratio was almost 1: 1 in all treatments.

The study included immune response to infection with secondary hydatid disease in BALB/c mice activated by partially purified Cerebrospinal fluid-polyamine oxidase CSF-P AO with spermine (Spm) and infected with protoscoleces of Echinococcus granulosus. The pathological changes occurred in mice activated by different
concentrations of PA0(200-1600Jlg/10gm body weight) with constant concentration (200 jlgl 1 Ogm body weight) of substrate (spermine), and by the same concentration of spermine alone, were followed in comparison with positive control group along one month, depending on many criteria.
These criteria included changes in numbers, weights and diameters of hydatid cysts, and their percentage eduction. In addition, changes in weights of liver and spleen and their organ indices .The results revealed
an obvious decrease in numbers, weights and diameters of secondary hydatid cysts grown for one month in activated mice, in comparison with the +ve control group, supported by elevation in the percentage of reduction of hydatid cysts in activated mice.A decrease in the mean of liver and spleen weights, and a variation in organ indices in activated mice occurred within one month, whereas no change was observed in the mean of spleen weight, in comparison with +ve control group.
Therefore, it may be concluded here that P AO isolated from CSF with Spm could be considered as an effective immunumodulator against infection with secondary hydatid disease.

Ninevah province is one of the ancient places in Iraq in producing of wheat from which , in addition to flour , many products are prepared since the first thousand years BC . These products are subjecte to infestation with red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst ) & khapra beetie,Trogoderma granarium Everts. Hence, the present investigation aimed at studying the biology of both insects at 32±1 °C & relative humidity 70±5% . The control was 95% flour powder & 5% yeast powder.
Results of the present study showed that Among the different types of pouches investigated, those made of polypropylene were found to be the most resistant to penetration , followed by aluminum foil. polyester .
Cellophane. Polyethylene and gunny. Highest mortality rate of both insects was due to subjection to carbon dioxide ,followed by subjection to nitrogen gas and finally those subjected to low pressure. Sensitivity of different stages to these gases was as follows: adult> egg> pupa >larva.
From the results of the above mentioned study, can be concluded that Low pressure, carbon dioxide or nitrogen can be employed to protect these products from infestation by the two insects studied .

This study was designed to evaluate the toxicities of Actara, Decis and Vapcocidin and the effects of the mixed-function oxidase (mfo) enzymes inhibitor, piperonyl butoxide (pb ), and inducer, Phenobarbital (phb ), on the toxicities to the 15 \ 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 51h instar larvae of Trogoderma granarium, using the impregnated filter paper technique. Based on the 24h LC50 values, the three insecticides were highly toxic to the larvae. Decis was about twice as toxic as Actara and both were greatly much more toxic than Vapcocidin. The toxicities of the three insecticides, generally, decreased as the Larval stage advanced (LC50 values in the 5- Larval instars were 1.7, 1.8, 2.2, 2.6, 3.1 0 l/filter paper, respectively, for Decis, 3.0, 3.5, 4.5, 6.0, 7.0 0 1/filter paper, respectively, for Actara and 6.0, 8.0, 11.0, 13.0, 15.0 0 1/filter paper, respectively, for Vapcocidin) and it is considered most likely that the decrease is due to the increase in the mfo enzymes activity. The mfo enzymes modifiers data showed that pb
and pbb greatly increased and decreased, respectively, the toxicities of the three insecticides. The date also revealed that mfo insecticide detoxifing enzymes activity increased as the Larval stage advanced. The study
suggests that Actara would be an effective alternative to pyrethroids against this insect.

This practical study was conducted in Mosul city. A one hundred sites were chosen from quarters, industrialand commercial regions, main and secondary streets. This study included the pollution of leaves and the fruit of olive by the mineral elements (lead, zinc and cadmium) to check the range of the concentration of these elements. This study extended since October. 1999 to October/ 2000 .
The results of the practical study appointed to a fact that the concentrations and the elements of mineral elements in leaves and fruits were different and heterogeneous among the regions and the season; while the highest concentrations were in the regions which included the city centre and the industrial regions. This pollution belongs to the overpopulation in the region which depends on kerosene as a fuel in the domestic uses as well as the crowded movement of traffic with what cars exhaust such smoke and gases as a result to the consabustion.
The high concentrations appeared in winter, while the low onces appeared for and modern quarters of the city centre and the industrial regions besides the region of the comparison. However, the concentrations of the elements in the leaves and the fruits where higher than the previous studies in the city as compared with some Arabic and international studies.
There were a heterogeneous in the concentrations of the mineral elements among the general and subsidiary streets for dwelling quarters.

This study involved isolation oftwenty eight primary isolates of the genus Serratia from different clinical human infections from different hospitals in Mosul city . After microscopic examination and diagnosis using biochemical tests, cultural characters and API 20 E system ,eleven isolates of Serratia marcescens were identified from them .Amplification of plasmid DNA content in S.marcescens isolates were tested in presence of chloramphenicol (1 OO}l/ml), tetracycline and starvation . The isolates showed variation in their ability to amplify their plasmid DNA content in the presence of chloramphenicol and by starvation as compared with unamplfied cultmes. While in presence of tetracycline (150 )1/ml) only one isolate out of seven showed this characteristic. Phages isolated from
sewage water were used to control viabiLity of bacterial isolates. The results showed that these phages appear to be ineffective on these isolates.

In this study, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella typhimurium were isolated and identified from patients suffering from food poisoning, (60) isolates ( 41.4%) showed Staph. aureus and (85) isolates (58.6%)
showed S. typhimurium. Aqueous and ethanol extracts from Salvia officina/is leaves showed high inhibitory activities against tested bacteria, while a good action was seen using the essential oils. The volatile oil compounds furfural and camphor isolated from ethanol extract showed good inhibitory action against Staph. aureus and high inhibitory action against S. typhimurium compared with the standard antibiotic (Gentamycin, Amoxicillin,
Tetracycline), in addition the petroleum ether fraction containing the compounds. P-pinene, a-pinene, Limonene) also showed good inhibitory action against tested bacteria, The minimum inhibitory concentration
(MIC) values were detected for aqueous, ethanol, petroleum ether and chloroform extracts against Staph. aureus and S. typhimurium and was equal to (0.03) mg/cm3 , while the MIC value against Staph. aureus was
(0.0 15) mg/cm3 using the acetone extract. The isolated essential oils from sage leaves showed high MIC values (0.00033 and 0.0005 cm3 /cm3 ) against Staph. aureus and S. typhimurium respectively, while furfural and
camphor from the ethanol extract and B-pinene, a-pinene, Limonene from petroleum ether extract observed a MIC value equal to (0.06) mg/cm3 . In addition, the antibiotic sensitivity of both types of bacteria with the
presence of the active components was also tested. The results showed that active components have synergistic effect against Staph. aureus but antagonistic effect against S. typhimurium.

The present study established cell suspensions from the friable callus derived from the stem explant of broad bean (Vi cia faba) axenic seedlings. These suspensions of certain densities were cultured by embedding in agar, using three methods of culture including, multiple drop arrays (MDA), thin layers and sectors. In the presence of MS and
SH liquid medium forming solid - liquid medium. The results indicated that all methods succeeded at culturing cell
suspension using MS medium. Moreover, these methods sustained callus f01mation. Multiple Drop Array (MDA) induced callus at ratio of 68% in MS medium, and 48% in SH medium. All pieces of callus primordia
continued their growth and increased in size.

Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA markers were used to evaluate the· genetic stability of micro propagated plants of potato (Solanum tuberosum) var.Desiree .To achieve this genomic DNA was
extracted from the samples to comparison between the DNA of plantlet micro propagated through meristem culture and the DNA of the plantlets (7 samples) after sub culturing 16 times, beside the comparison within the
samples. Fifteen arbitrary primers were used to amplify DNA from the samples, to assess the genetic stability .All RAPD profiles from micro propagated plants were mono morphic and similar to the DNA of the origin sample
.no variation was detected within the micro propagated plants, this prove that potato plants used in this study were resistant to somaclanal variation and utilization of RAPD markers for the assessment of genetic stability.
