Abstract: Spotted Wing Drosophila SWD (Drosophila suzukii) is a serious pest in Europe attacking many softskinned crops such as several berry species and grapevine. SWD is an invasive species arriving Europe in 2008. In contrast to most other Drosophila species, SWD deposits its eggs with the serrated ovipositor into mature, intact, and undamaged fruits. Larvae develop within the fruit that collapse within days. Before collapse the infestation is hardly seen. This may lead to infested fruits that collapse in the shops or after being sold to consumers. Today, farmers may test for infestation by incubation for 48h of the fruits followed by a treatment with saltwater. Larvae escape the fruits and can be counted on the water surface. A more efficient and accurate detection of fruit infestation is currently not available. We aim at developing an antibody-based detection system allowing to rapidly analyze a high number of fruit samples for potential infestation with eggs and larvae of SWD. Some 7 000 potential target proteins have been selected from Casas-Vila (2018) for in silico analysis of the expression profiles. The proteins most stably expressed during embryo, larvae, and pupae stages have been selected and used as targets for ELISA and lateral flow device.
