The male accessory reproductive glands of insect, in most cases, the glands exhibits a single layered glandular epithelium surrounded by basement membrane and a muscular wall. The MARGs open into the vasa differentia or distal end of the ejaculatory duct. The accessory…

Role of male accessory glands in spermatodesm reorganization in Orthoptera Tettigonioidea.

In conclusion, data from incubations of spermatodesms with the single fractions obtained by submitting GE2 to gel-filtration FPLC show that only the peak 4 maintains intact the biological activity of GE2, SDS-PAGE analysis of the fraction corresponding to peak 4 revealed a greater protein content of 29 kD, which also appears to be responsible for a partial dismantling of the 'cap' in the incubated sperMatodesms.

Male accessory gland secretions: modulators of female reproductive physiology and behavior.

Secretions of male accessory glands contain a variety of bioactive molecules that exert wide-ranging effects on female reproductive activity and they improve the male's chances of siring a significant proportion of the female's offspring.

Male insect accessory glands: Functions and control of secretory activity

In most insects, juvenile hormone (JH) is important in the regulation of MAG secretory activity; however, the production of some proteins appears not to be influenced by JH, and their synthesis is regulated by ecdysteroids.

This review discusses some of the recent studies that show that the major hormones that control growth and metamorphosis of the epidermis also control the growth, differentiation, and physiological modulation of the male reproductive system.

It is suggested that the CA is a direct target for SP in vivo and that sexual maturity is established separately for the two post-mating reactions, which are well-defined reactions in sexually matured females of many insects.

Supporting this hypothesis, an unusually high fraction of Acps show signs consistent with their being targets of positive Darwinian selection, and many appear to be secreted peptides or prohormones.
