In this work we have analyzed the involvement of cell death pathways during the process of follicular atresia in the hematophagous insect vector Dipetalogaster maxima. Standardized insect rearing conditions were established to induce a gradual follicular degeneration stage by depriving females of blood meal during post-vitellogenesis. We first characterized the morpho-histological and ultrastructural changes of the ovarian tissue at early and late follicular atresia by light and transmission… CONTINUE READING
