(Orthoptera: Acrididae) was examined by the introduction of fluorescein-dextran (FD) into the hemocoel and observing its tissue specific sequestration. Male grasshoppers were observed to sequester FD first in the apical end of each sperm tube. FD then moved(More)
This report examines three aspects of adipokinetic hormone (AKH) involvement in migratory flight behavior in the grasshopper, Melanoplus sanguinipes. The titer of hemolymph AKH I during long-duration tethered flight was examined using radioimmunoassay (RIA) after narrow bore RP-HPLC. The hemolymph fraction containing AKH I was assayed using commercially(More)
