Abstract.In the Homopteran order of insects, the plant xylem feeders exhibit a highly differentiated part of their digestive tract known as the filter chamber. In this tissue, water crosses plasma membranes through a transepithelial osmotic gradient. In previous studies on the filter chamber of Cicadella viridis, we purified and characterized from the plasma membranes a 25 kDa protein that we demonstrated to be an aquaporin (or water channel, member of the major intrinsic protein family, a… CONTINUE READING
