Article History: Received 3, August, 2014 Received in revised form 15, August, 2014 Accepted 11, September, 2014 Published online 28, September, 2014 In male accessory reproductive glands are ectodermal a mesodermal in origin. 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…

Secretory activity and endocrine regulation of male accessory glands in the blood-sucking bug Panstrongylus megistus (Hemiptera: Reduviidae).
TLDR
Although topic application of precocene II to adult males does not reproduce the same effects on MAG as does allatectomy, this compound causes strong reduction on male reproductive capacity.
Role of male accessory glands in spermatodesm reorganization in Orthoptera Tettigonioidea.
TLDR
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.
The effect of juvenile hormone on protein synthesis in the transparent accessory gland of male Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
The data indicate that JH from the CA controls protein synthesis in the TARG and that the CA in the male of Rhodnius may be subject to different controls than in the female.

TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
20-hydroxyecdysone and juvenile hormone regulation of specific protein synthesis in the male accessory reproductive gland of Melanoplus sanguinipes under in vitro conditions
TLDR
Though the effect of 20-HE was concentration-dependent in most instances, for a few polypeptides quite opposite effects were noted for the two concentrations of hormone, and the observations are discussed in terms of the fluctuations in hormone levels during sexual maturation.
Cellular and Molecular Actions of Juvenile Hormone. II. Roles of Juvenile Hormone in Adult Insects
TLDR
This chapter reviews the actions of JH on the fat body, gonads, accessory glands, muscle, and nervous system of adult insects and emphasizes the importance of selecting insect systems on the basis of their optimal features for research, rather than historical precedent or economic importance.

TLDR
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.

A study of the effect of bush fires in connection with the tse-tse Glossina morsitans on the ecology of grasshoppers in east central Sudan and the implications for game control measures in African wilderness and forested areas.
Sex-peptide activates juvenile hormone biosynthesis in the Drosophila melanogaster corpus allatum.
TLDR
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.
