Antioxidant defenses in caterpillars: role of the ascorbate-recycling system in the midgut lumen.
This study demonstrates that an ascorbate-recycling system in the midgut lumen can act as an effective antioxidant defense in caterpillars that feed on prooxidant-rich foods. In tannin-sensitiveExpand
Cellulose Digestion in the Midgut of the Fungus-Growing Termite Macrotermes natalensis: The Role of Acquired Digestive Enzymes
The midguts of adult workers of the higher termite species Macrotermes natalensis contain the entire set of digestive enzymes required for the digestion of native cellulose. The Cx-cellulases and theExpand
KBG syndrome: Report of twins, neurological characteristics, and delineation of diagnostic criteria
KBG syndrome is a multiple congenital anomaly (MCA) syndrome comprising developmental delay, postnatal short stature, and delayed bone age. Many physical anomalies involving the face, hands, andExpand
A genetic screen for modifiers of Deformed homeotic function identifies novel genes required for head development.
Only a few genes have been identified that participate in the developmental pathways which modulate homeotic (HOX) protein specificity or mediate HOX morphogenetic function. To identify more HOXExpand
The digestion of protein and carbohydrate by the stream detritivore, Tipula abdominalis (Diptera, Tipulidae)
SummaryThe digestive system of larvae of Tipula abdominalis (Diptera, Tipulidae), a stream detritivore, is poorly adapted for the digestion of the major polysaccharides in its diet, but well adaptedExpand
Clinical and Metabolic Characteristics of Hyperosmolar Nonketotic Coma
Clinical and metabolic data of twenty patients with hyperosmolar nonketotic coma (HNC) and ten patients in keto-acidosis (DA) are compared. HNC patients were older; fewer were previously knownExpand
Acquisition of Digestive Enzymes by Siricid Woodwasps from Their Fungal Symbiont
Larvae of the woodwasp, Sirex cyaneus, contain midgut digestive enzymes that enable them to utilize the major fungal and plant polysaccharides found in their food. At least two classes of enzymes,Expand
The Biochemical Basis of the Fungus-Attine Ant Symbiosis
The natural history of the fungus-growing ants provides a spectacular example of a symbiotic association of two very different types of organisms. An anthropomorphic description is difficult toExpand
