Life Cycle of an Endogenous Retrovirus,ZAM, in Drosophila melanogaster
ABSTRACT ZAM is an env-containing member of thegypsy family of retrotransposons that represents a possible retrovirus of invertebrates. In this paper, we tracedZAM mobilization to get informationExpand

Larval salivary gland proteins of the sheep nasal bot fly, (Oestrus ovis L.), are major immunogens in infested sheep.
Tissue extracts from larval instars of the sheep nasal bot, Oestrus ovis, were resolved by gel electrophoresis under both native and denaturing conditions. Polypeptides resolved under theseExpand

Yolk utilization in stick insects entails the release of vitellin polypeptides into the perivitelline fluid.
This study investigates the developmental fate of vitellin (Vt) polypeptides generated by limited proteolysis in an insect embryo. To this end, a number of polyclonal (pAb) and monoclonal antibodiesExpand

Mono- and polyclonal antibodies as probes to study vitellin processing in embryos of the stick insect Carausius morosus.
During embryonic development, insect vitellins (Vt) are degraded by limited proteolysis to yield a number of lower-molecular weight polypeptides. The aim of the present study was to identify theseExpand

Integument ultrastructure of Oestrus ovis (L.) (Diptera:Oestridae) larvae: host immune response to various cuticular components.
The nasal bot fly, Oestrus ovis, was investigated to establish which specific cuticular component is most immunogenic to infested sheep and how larval cuticle attains a protective role, if any,Expand

Vitellin polypeptide pathways in late insect yolk sacs.
A panel of monoclonal antibodies was raised against late yolk sacs of the stick insect Carausius morosus and tested by immunoblotting to establish the extent vitellin polypeptides are processedExpand
