Several hypothetical models suggest that the circadian clock system is involved in the photoperiodic clock mechanisms in insects. However, there is no evidence for this at a neuronal level. In the present study, whether circadian clock neurons were involved in photoperiodism was examined by surgical ablation of small area in the brain and by immunocytochemical analysis in the blow fly Protophormia terraenovae. Five types of PER-immunoreactive cells, dorsal lateral neurons (LN(d)), large ventral… CONTINUE READING
