In the cockroach Blattella germanica, the synthesis of vitellogenin is juvenile hormone III (JH III)-dependent. We have studied the effect of JH III upon vitellogenin gene expression in periovaric fat bodies incubated in vitro. Periovaric fat bodies were obtained from cardioallatectomized females. The response to JH III was measured in terms of vitellogenin and vitellogenin mRNA after 7 h of incubation. A hormonal concentration as low as 1 nM was enough to induce vitellogenin production and its… CONTINUE READING
