Peritrophic membrane (PM) secretion and formation occur primarily in the anterior region of the mesenteron in the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) as determined by light and electron microscopy. Nascent PM first became visible as fibrous linear chitin-containing structures stained with gold-labeled wheat germ agglutinin between and at the tips of the microvilli. No formed PM was visible at the foregut-midgut junction, but a thin single PM appeared first in the lumen between the… CONTINUE READING
