Host cell allometry and regulation of the symbiosis between pea aphids, Acyrthosiphon pisum, and bacteria, Buchnera.

Abstract

The symbiotic bacteria Buchnera in aphids are borne in cells, called bacteriocytes, in the insect haemocoel. The number and median volume of bacteriocytes in pre-reproductive adult insects varied significantly among 14 parthenogenetic clones of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum. After logarithmic transformation of the data, the relationship of both number… (More)
