Dark-red pigment granules were found in the brain and ganglion of the normal strain of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, by light microscopy. No other pigmentation was seen in the brain or ganglia. Electron microscopy showed that the granules were electron-dense. The granules were similar to the ommochrome-containing pigment granules that are present in the epidermal cells of the quail mutant, as previously reported. The pigment in the larval central nervous system (CNS) of the normal silkworm was… CONTINUE READING
