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)
The fluid dynamics of the reproductive system of the migratory grasshopper, Melanoplus sanguinipes F. (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)
