There are three known clusters of neurosecretory cells expressing a gene encoding diapause hormone (DH) and four related peptides in the suboesophageal ganglion (SOG) of Bombyx mori. Long-term chronic recordings were made from the axonal tract (NCC-3) of a pair of cells localized in the labial (posterior) neuromere of SOG during pupal-adult development. There was a significant difference in firing activity patterns of the labial neurosecretory cells between diapause-egg and non-diapause-egg… CONTINUE READING
