Calcium-regulated fusion of yolk granules is important for yolk degradation during early embryogenesis of Rhodnius prolixus Stahl.

Abstract

This study examined the process of membrane fusion of yolk granules (YGs) during early embryogenesis of Rhodnius prolixus. We show that eggs collected at days 0 and 3 after oviposition contain different populations of YGs, for example day-3 eggs are enriched in large YGs (LYGs). Day-3 eggs also contain the highest free [Ca(2+)] during early embryogenesis of… (More)
