The wing margin of adult wings of Lepidoptera is defined by the position of a "bordering lacuna"(BL). During adult wing development, cell proliferation and scale formation proximal to this lacuna and programmed cell death distal to the lacuna are generally observed. To determine the effect of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) on these events, we cultured the silkworm pupal wings with or without 20E and analyzed regional specificity for cell death by the TUNEL method and cell proliferation by 5… CONTINUE READING
