Abstract

Abstract Ants have an interest in carbohydrates based on studies that have been done by people. Based on other studies showing that coconut oil residues still have a high carbohydrate content. Need to do research on the use of coconut oil to provoke the presence of ants. The results of this study can show the potential of coconut oil to provoke the presence of certain ants. Testing of coconut oil to provoke the presence of these ants is carried out at the location of litter, bush, and terrain in Serdang Menang Village plantation. The selection of test sites in litter, bush, and terrain allows for differences in ant species in that location. The method used is by applying coconut oil to the cotton and then placing it in the location of litter, bush, and terrain. The results of the study found ant species Dolichoderus sp. and Tapinoma sp. interested in coconut oil which is placed in the location of litter, bush, and terrain. It is estimated that ant species in the locations of litter, bush, and terrain are not only Dolichoderus sp. and Tapinoma sp. Coconut oil can provoke the presence of Dolichoderus sp. and Tapinoma sp. in the location of litter, bush, and terrain in Serdang Menang Village plantation, this could indicate the pot...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
