Mating induces behavioral and physiological changes in the plant bug Lygus hesperus Knight (Hemiptera: Miridae). After receiving seminal products, which include the systemic regulator juvenile hormone (JH), females enter a post-mating period lasting several days during which they enhance their oviposition rate and lose interest in remating. To elucidate the regulation of these behavioral changes in L. hesperus, biogenic amines were quantified in the heads of females at 5 min, 1 h and 24 h after… Expand
Role of Biogenic Amines in Oviposition by the Diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella L
TLDR
It is concluded that octopamine and its receptors are involved in mating-triggered oviposition in P. xylostella, while tyramine acts as a subsidiary. Expand
Biogenic amines shift during the pre-reproductive to reproductive transition in the small carpenter bee, Ceratina calcarata
TLDR
It is found that as females transition from a pre-reproductive to reproductive state, ovarian development is accompanied by an increase in brain levels of octopamine and serotonin, the first characterization of biogenic amines in the brains of males. Expand
Social Evolution With Decoupling of Multiple Roles of Biogenic Amines Into Different Phenotypes in Hymenoptera
Convergent evolution of eusociality with the division of reproduction and its plastic transition in Hymenoptera has long attracted the attention of researchers. To explain the evolutionary scenarioExpand
The effects of juvenile hormone on Lasius niger reproduction.
TLDR
This study measures fertility, vitellogenin gene expression and protein levels after experimental manipulation of hormone levels to investigate the mechanistic basis of endocrinological role remodelling in reproduction and determine how JH suppresses reproduction in this species. Expand
Mating and social contact change egg production and longevity in adult females of the mirid Lygus hesperus
TLDR
Results indicate that male‐specific stimuli accelerate female reproductive maturation, and that mating elevates oviposition rate, but females paired with either a female or male companion had shortened lifespans, suggesting that social contacts exact a significant cost in this solitary species. Expand
Caste-specific development of the dopaminergic system during metamorphosis in female honey bees
TLDR
The developmental process of caste-specific dopaminergic systems during metamorphosis in the honey bee is revealed, suggesting caste- specific behavior and division of reproduction in this highly eusocial species. Expand
New insights on neurotransmitters signaling mechanisms in plants
TLDR
An overview of recent advancements on the physiological and molecular mechanism of NTs in plants is provided and molecular crosstalk of SER and MEL with various biomolecules is also discussed. Expand
Altered immunity in crowded Mythimna separata is mediated by octopamine and dopamine
TLDR
Results suggested that both octopamine and dopamine mediate the increases in total haemocyte count and PO activity in the crowded larvae. Expand
Selection of reference genes for RT-qPCR analysis of Phenacoccus solenopsis (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae) sex-dimorphic development
TLDR
Ten candidate reference genes in male and female P. solenopsis at different development stages were analyzed using common algorithms including the ΔCt method, NormFinder, geNorm, BestKeeper, and a web-based analysis tool, RefFinder and the two most suitable reference genes were validated by examining expression of the juvenile hormone acid O-methytransferase gene. Expand
An insect anti-antiaphrodisiac
TLDR
Evidence was found of a complimentary mechanism that more accurately conveys female mating status, and the first evidence for such an anti-antiaphrodisiac pheromone, adding a new element to the communication mechanisms regulating reproductive behaviors. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the changes in the mating behaviors of L. hesperus are linked to reproductive status, although there is a lag between gamete production and willingness to mate. Expand
Reproductive Refractoriness in the Western Tarnished Plant Bug (Hemiptera: Miridae)
TLDR
The postmating refractory period for both sexes of Lygus hesperus Knight is described, with males found to have a median delay of 24 h, which seems to be the minimum time needed to refill the accessory glands and produce another viably sized spermatophore. Expand
Oviposition and oogenesis in virgin fire ant females Solenopsis invicta are associated with a high level of dopamine in the brain
TLDR
The possible role of dopamine as the neural target of the queen pheromone regarding its potent allotoregulatory effect in other insects is discussed. Expand
Characterization of male-derived factors inhibiting female sexual receptivity in Lygus hesperus.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesized role of males in manipulating the post-mating behavior of females, and suggest this is achieved through multiple components that act in concert to induce both short- and long-term effects. Expand
Mating in Heliothis virescens: transfer of juvenile hormone during copulation by male to female and stimulation of biosynthesis of endogenous juvenile hormone.
TLDR
The data suggest the transfer of JH to females by the male, the first demonstration of an allatotropic effect of mating in moths. Expand
Effect of octopamine on the activity of juvenile-hormone esterase in the silkworm Bombyx mori and the red flour beetle Tribolium freemani.
TLDR
OA may contribute to activation of the events preparatory to a pupal molt, i.e., the secretion of OA increases JHE activity followed by stimulation of pupation. Expand
The effects of octopamine on juvenile hormone biosynthesis, electrophysiology, and cAMP content of the corpora allata of the cockroach Diploptera punctata
TLDR
It is hypothesized that octopamine may be a natural neuromodulator of JH production by CA, regulating ion channels in CA cells themselves as well as release of the inhibitory neuropeptide, allatostatin, from the terminals within the CA. Expand
Modulatory effects of octopamine and serotonin on male sensitivity and periodicity of response to sex pheromone in the cabbage looper moth, Trichoplusia ni
TLDR
The pheromone-mediated flight behavior of male cabbage looper moths in a sustained-flight tunnel and random activity exhibited during scotophase were observed after males were treated with octopamine or serotonin, which induced a hypersensitivity to the olfactory signal and disrupted the circadian rhythmicity of response.

TLDR
Results suggest that octopamine plays a role in the oviposition process after mating, and the effect was dose-dependent and repeatable. Expand

The results show the possibility that biogenic amines control mating receptivity and oviposition behaviour in females of two Callosobruchus species. Expand
