Abstract

This study was designed to discover the effect of gamma irradiation on the vitality of Ceratitis capitata by the expression profile of 2 energy genes. Full grown pupae were exposed to 50, 70 and 90Gy and the expression levels of malate dehydrogenase and ATP synthase levels were estimated using RT-PCR. The results revealed a non-significant lowering in the activities with increasing of the radiation doses when compared to the control. Finally, it could be concluded that these doses could contribute in the SIT program and could be integrated with other control tools for C. capitata eradication.
