- Annual review of entomology
- 28 November 2003
Secretions of male accessory glands contain a variety of bioactive molecules. When transferred during mating, these molecules exert wide-ranging effects on female reproductive activity and they… Expand
New insights into peritrophic matrix synthesis, architecture, and function.
The peritrophic matrix (PM) is a chitin and glycoprotein layer that lines the invertebrate midgut. Although structurally different, it is functionally similar to the mucous secretions of the… Expand
Parasitoids, predators and PCR: the use of diagnostic molecular markers in biological control of Arthropods
Abstract: The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) revolutionized the field of diagnostics, and today it has routine applications in medical, veterinary, forensic and botanical sciences. The fields of… Expand
Feeding preferences, growth, and development of Mamestra configurata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) on Brassicaceae
Nous avons suivi la croissance (augmentation de la masse) et le developpement (progression jusqu'a un stade donne) chez la Legionnaire bertha, Mamestra configurata Walker, sur plusieurs lignees de… Expand
Attraction of the diamondback moth (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) to volatiles of Oriental mustard: the influence of age, sex, and prior exposure to mates and host plants.
A Y-tube behavioral bioassay was developed to investigate attraction of the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.), to volatiles from host plants. During the scotophase, male and female moths… Expand
THE LIFE HISTORIES OF THREE SPECIES OF LESTES (ODONATA: ZYGOPTERA) IN SASKATCHEWAN
In Saskatchewan, Lestes unguiculatus Hagen, L . disjunctus disjunctus Walk., and L . dryas Kirby overwinter as eggs in a late stage of embryonic development. The embryos enter diapause in September… Expand
The control of receptivity and ovulation in the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans
ABSTRACT. A rapid decline in receptivity of mated female Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood is shown to depend on both physical and chemical stimuli associated with copulation. Radiolabelling… Expand
A chitin deacetylase and putative insect intestinal lipases are components of the Mamestra configurata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) peritrophic matrix
One‐ and two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with liquid chromatography‐tandem mass spectrometry (LC‐MS/MS) was used to identify cDNA encoding a chitin deacetylase (McCDA1) and three insect… Expand
A large-scale comparison of conventional and molecular methods for the evaluation of host-parasitoid associations in non-target risk-assessment studies
Summary 1 Accurate identification of natural enemies is the cornerstone of biological control, and methods that can separate closely related species are essential in ecological studies of… Expand
Male insect accessory glands: Functions and control of secretory activity
- C. Gillott
- 1 December 1996
Summary Paralleling the diversity of the class Insecta, the male accessory glands (MAG) exhibit a wide range of form, and their secretion serves a variety of functions, including spermatophore and… Expand
