Dendritic reorganization of abdominal motoneurons during metamorphosis of the moth, Manduca sexta.
During metamorphosis in the hawkmoth Manduca sexta, muscles of the abdominal body wall undergo a reorganization. Many die at the end of larval life and are replaced in the adult by newly generated… Expand
Neuromuscular metamorphosis in the moth Manduca sexta: hormonal regulation of synapses loss and remodeling
The motor system of the moth Manduca sexta is completely remodeled during the pupal-adult transformation (PAT). It is stable until the formation of the pupal stage (0% PAT), but larval motor end… Expand
Dendritic reorganization of an identified motoneuron during metamorphosis of the tobacco hornworm moth
In the tobacco hornworm, many larval motoneurons become respecified and supply new muscles in the adult. Changes in the morphology of one such neuron were examined through metamorphosis. The… Expand
Microanalysis of the amino acid sequence of the eclosion hormone from the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta
The amino acid sequence of the eclosion hormone from the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta has been determined, using less than 500 pmol of protein and microanalytical techniques. The protein contains… Expand
Hormonal regulation of the shape of identified motoneurons in the moth Manduca sexta
Motoneurons MN-1 and MN-3 in the moth Manduca sexta go through 3 distinct phases during postembryonic life. During larval life their neuritic fields show allometric growth in concert with larval… Expand
