We have used an enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) for determination of the AKH content in CNS (brain + corpora cardiaca + corpora allata) and haemolymph of adult macropterous and brachypterous females of the bug Pyrrhocoris apterus. The tests revealed that the AKH content fluctuates between 1 and almost 4 pmol/CNS during the first 14 days of adult life and(More)
In 22 nm optical lithography and beyond, source mask optimization (SMO) becomes vital for the continuation of advanced ArF technology node development. The pixel-based method permits a large solution space, but involves a time-consuming optimization procedure because of the large number of pixel variables. In this paper, we introduce the Zernike polynomials(More)
It is known that the light scattering from the metal particles deposited on the surfaces of cells can be used for increasing light trapping in the solar cells. In this work, plasmonic structures are composite materials that consisted of silver nanoparticles embedded in dielectric films of TiO x — used as cell antireflection coating. The films are deposited(More)
In the present paper we studied the effects of five biogenic amines - norepinephrine, dopamine, octopamine, serotonin and histamine - on the locomotory activity and mobilization of lipids in the adult females of the firebug, Pyrrhocoris apterus (L.). We tested the hypothesis (1) whether the stimulation of walking activity in the bugs injected with the(More)
A new member of the AKH/RPCH family was isolated from the corpora cardiaca of the firebug Pyrrhocoris apterus. It is the second adipokinetic peptide identified in this species. The peptide was characterized and its structure was deduced from the multiple MS(N) electrospray mass spectra as that of an octapeptide with the sequence(More)
Sexual attractiveness of unengorged, semiengorged and fully engorged females of both field and laboratory populations of Ixodes ricinus was studied under laboratory conditions by means of a computerised video tracking system. A male and a female were allowed to walk freely in a glass arena during 1 h and their behavioural interactions were observed.(More)
