Effects of chilling stress on allatal growth and juvenile hormone synthesis in the cockroach, Diploptera punctata.


During the ovarian cycle of the cockroach, Diploptera punctata, a mitotic wave occurs in the corpora allata before an increase in gland volume and juvenile hormone (JH) synthesis. Previous studies have demonstrated that the brain inhibits mitosis and JH synthesis in corpus allatum (CA) cells until adult females have mated. Herein, we report that chilling… (More)
