Transport of lipids in insects.
Many insect species are almost completely dependent on lipids for their metabolic needs, although this is usually a function of developmental stage. The primary storage organ is the fat body, whichExpand

Carbohydrate metabolism in the diapause egg of the silkworm, Bombyx mori—II: Conversion of glycogen into sorbitol and glycerol during diapause
Abstract In the preceding paper ( Chino , 1957) a sudden disappearance of glycogen is silkworm eggs was shown to be associated with the onset of diapause and a sudden reappearance with theExpand

Transport of hydrocarbons by haemolymph lipophorin in Locusta migratoria
Abstract Injection of [1- 14 C]acetate into the locust, Locusta migratoria , results in the incorporation of radioactivity into the hydrocarbon fraction which is subsequently released into theExpand

Diacylglycerol-carrying lipoprotein of hemolymph of the locust and some insects.
The diacylglycerol-carrying lipoprotein (DGLP) was purified from hemolymph of the locust, Locusta migratoria, by a rapid method which included a specific precipitation at low ionic concentration andExpand

Purification and properties of vitellogenin and vitellin from a tick,Ornithodoros moubata
SummaryThe vitellogenin (Vg) and vitellin (Vn) of a soft tick,Ornithodoros moubata, were purified from reproductive female haemolymph and from eggs, respectively. The Vg preparation displayed twoExpand

Lipid transfer particle in locust hemolymph: purification and characterization.
A lipid transfer particle (LTP) from the hemolymph of adult male locusts, Locusta migratoria, was isolated and purified. The locust LTP exhibited its capacity to catalyze the exchange ofExpand

Conversion of Glycogen to Sorbitol and Glycerol in the Diapause Egg of the Bombyx Silkworm
IN the course of biochemical studies1 on the embryonic diapause of the Bombyx silkworm, it has been shown that the glycogen content of the egg decreases markedly at the onset of diapause and reachesExpand
