The development of the peritrophic membrane in the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni, was investigated by scanning electron microscopy. The development of this membrane is characterized by a series of events suggested by the observations to be (1) secretion of material among and above the microvilli of the midgut epithelial cells, (2) maturation of this material into a randomly cross-linked fibrous matrix, and (3) aggregation of amorphous materials in and within the matrix. The membrane… CONTINUE READING
