Microsporidia Vairimorpha (Nosema) ceranae is an emergent parasite of honeybee Apis mellifera and has a great concern to apiculture due to high pathogenesity and fumagillin resistance. Recently RNA interference and single-chain antibodies technologies are proposed to create unsusceptible to intracellular parasites breeds of insects. In this study we established cell culture model system to provide a way to investigate the molecular basis of interactions between honeybee and its pathogen. As the first step in this direction V. ceranae spores were isolated from living bees, properly sterilized and in vitro germinated with Sf9 lepidopteran-derived cell line. The entire life circle of this parasite was achieved. This should allow us to develop the novel treatment strategy directed to inhibit propagation of V. ceranae intracellular stages with recombinant antibodies targeted to the vitally important membrane transporters.
