In this study, the cytological structure of Malpighian tubules in young (1 day) and old (3 days) Agrotis segetum (Denis, Schiff., 1775) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) pupae was investigated comparatively by means of transmission electron microscope. Mitochondria were not observed in microvilli of the Malpighian tubule cells of young A. segetum pupae. The lumen of the Malpighian tubules was also seen to be lost in this stage. The basal plasma membrane of the cells was extended parallel to the basal… Expand
Structural and ultrastructural features of the Malpighian tubules of Dolycoris baccarum (Linnaeus 1758), (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
The morphology and ultrastructure of the Malpighian tubules of Dolycoris baccarum were analyzed by scanning and transmission electron microscopy and differences or similarities with other species were demonstrated. Expand
Ultrastructure of fat body cells and Malpighian tubule cells in overwintering Scoliopteryx libatrix (Noctuoidea)
The herald moths, Scoliopteryx libatrix, overwinter in hypogean habitats. The ultrastructure of their fat body (FB) cells and Malpighian tubule (MT) epithelial cells was studied by light microscopyExpand
Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki on Malpighian tubule cells of Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Lepidoptera: Thaumetopoeidae) larvae.
TLDR
In this study effects of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki (Btk) on Malpighian tubule cells of Thaumetopoea pityocampa larvae was investigated by electron microscopy. Expand
Structure of the Malpighian tubule cells and annual changes in the structure and chemical composition of their spherites in the cave cricket Troglophilus neglectus Krauss, 1878 (Rhaphidophoridae, Saltatoria).
TLDR
The findings suggest that the mineral supply of spherites in Malpighian tubules is crucial to supporting vital processes throughout the life cycle of T. neglectus. Expand
The evidence on the degradation processes in the midgut epithelial cells of the larval antlion Euroleon nostras (Geoffroy in Fourcroy, 1785) (Myrmeleontidae, Neuroptera).
TLDR
Structural differences between midgut epithelial cells of fed instar antlions' larvae Euroleon nostras and starved ones are analysed to provide insight supporting the role of autophagy as a cell survival mechanism for the periods of food deprivation. Expand
Malpighian Tubule Cells in Overwintering Cave Crickets Troglophilus cavicola (Kollar, 1833) and T. neglectus Krauss, 1879 (Rhaphidophoridae, Ensifera)
During winter, cave cricket larvae undergo dormancy in subterranean habitats; this dormancy is termed diapause in second year Troglophilus cavicola larvae because they mature during this time, andExpand
Fine Structure and Chemical Analysis of the Metathoracic Scent Glands Graphosoma semipunctatum (Fabricius, 1775) (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Morphology and ultrastructure of the metathoracic scent glands (MTG) of Graphosoma semipunctatum were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Expand
Fine structure and chemical analysis of the metathoracic scent gland of Eurygaster maura (Linnaeus, 1758) (Heteroptera: Scutelleridae).
The morphology and ultrastructure of the metathoracic scent glands (MTG) of Eurygaster maura were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Also,Expand
Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki on Malpighian tubule cells of Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Lepidoptera: Thaumetopoeidae) larvae.
TLDR
The results based on the mitochondrial localization support the idea that PDT can contribute to elimination of malignant cells by inducing apoptosis, which is of physiological significance. Expand
Application of analytical electron microscopic methods to investigate the function of spherites in the midgut of the larval antlion Euroleon nostras (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae)
TLDR
It could be suggested that the spherites might be involved in the regulation of the appropriate mineral composition of the internal environment and could serve as the accumulation site of nontoxic waste materials that cannot be metabolized. Expand
