A study of regeneration in nymphs and adults of the South African tick Ixodes (Afrixodes) rubicundus, from which the forelegs had been amputated during the previous instar, revealed that the structural changes in regenerated Haller's sensory organs resemble those observed in other ixodid ticks, in particular in another prostriate tick, Ixodes (Ixodes) ricinus. The adult regenerates re-establish their atavistic features in terms of the increased number of different sensilla on the distal knoll… 

Regeneration of Limbs and Sensory Organs in Ixodid Ticks (Acari, Ixodoidea, Ixodidae, and Argasidae)

Data on the effects of insect juvenile hormone analogs on the regeneration of Haller's organ, which support an hypothesis about the role of juvenile hormones in the modification of morphogenetic processes in ixodid ticks.

Specific Features of Haller's Organ Regeneration in the Tick Haemaphysalis longicornis (Acari, Ixodidae) in the Presence of Methoprene and Retinoic Acid

The results of experiments on regeneration of the Haller's sensory organ in the metastriate ixodid tick Haemaphysalis longicornisNeumann confirmed the similarity of prostriate and metastriates as concerns the juvenalizing effect of the above morphogens on regenerative processes during nymphal-imaginal metamorphosis.

Regeneration of Haller's sensory organ in two species of hard ticks of the genus Haemaphysalis (Acari: Ixodidae)

Data on regeneration of Haller's sensory organ testify to an ancient character of the genus, standing closely to the base of the phylogenetic tree of hard ticks.

Honey Bee Parasitic Mite Contains the Sensilla-Rich Sensory Organ on the Foreleg Tarsus Expressing Ionotropic Receptors With Conserved Functions

Insight is provided into the sensory mechanisms of honey bee parasitic mites, as well as potential targets for methods to control the most serious honey bee pest.

Honey bee parasitic mite contains the sensory organ expressing ionotropic receptors with conserved functions

The forelegs were enriched with mRNAs encoding sensory proteins such as ionotropic receptors (IRs) and gustatory receptors (GRs) as well as proteins involved in ciliary transport, demonstrating that the structures and physiological functions of ancient IRs have been conserved during arthropod evolution.

Amputation of legs in nymphs of ticks, obtained from the first laboratory generation, resulted in regeneration of the legs after moulting to adults. Haller's sensory organ on the upper surface of

Pathways of regeneration of Haller's sensory organ during the life cycle of the tick Hyalomma asiaticum.

An hypothesis is presented about the ontogenesis of the complete, peripheral, polymodal sensory organ as a process in which the initial cell differentiation of cells begins at different starting points.

Effects of juvenile hormone and its analogs on vitellogenin synthesis and ovarian development in Ornithodoros moubata (Acari: Argasidae).

Vg synthesis in females treated with JH and JH analogs was analyzed by in vivo labeling and fluorography, which showed that Vg synthesis was not induced by application of JH to unengorged females.

Regeneration [3] is a fascinating phenomenon. The fact that many organisms have the capacity to regenerate lost parts and even remake complete copies of themselves is difficult to fathom; so
