Cockroach allatostatin-like immunoreactivity in the synganglion of the American dog tick Dermacentor variabilis (Acari: Ixodidae)

Using immunocytochemistry based on a monoclonal antibodyagainst Diploptera punctata allatostatin I and horseradishperoxidase-diaminobenzidine reaction, the presence of allatostatin-likeimmunoreactivity is demonstrated in the synganglion of Dermacentorvariabilis females. The immunoreactive cells are located in theprotocerebral, cheliceral, palpal, stomodeal… (More)
