Selected compounds were used to study physiological processes associated with digestion in the western tarnished plant bug, Lygus hesperus Knight. Durations of passage and rates of absorption, digestion, and excretion were determined for a digestible protein (casein), a non-digestible protein (green fluorescent protein, GFP), and a non-digestible carbohydrate (dextran). Dextran was used as a control to monitor the non-absorptive flow rate of ingesta through the digestive system. Fluorescent… Expand
Bioactive peptide release and the absorption tracking of casein in the gastrointestinal digestion of rats.
TLDR
The results showed that CN-FITC exhibited good labeling stability in the gastrointestinal digestive juice both in vivo and in vitro, suggesting its potential to be used for the detection and tracking of casein hydrolysate. Expand

THE MOVEMENT OF PROTEINS ACROSS THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM OF TOBACCO BUDWORM, HELIOTHIS VIRESCENS by LAURA ANN JEFFERS

The movement of proteins across the insect and tick digestive system.
TLDR
Protein movement was observed for both normal dietary and xenobiotic proteins, which suggest that the mechanism for transfer is not substrate specific and could be highly significant to the future of protein and nucleic acid-based insecticide development as well as traditional chemical insecticidal technologies.

Absorption of albumin by the midgut of a lepidopteran larva.
TLDR
Results indicate that albumin crosses B. mori larval midgut by transcytosis, and the functional properties of the transepithelial transport of this protein are described and its lumen-to-haemolymph flux is characterised. Expand
Interaction of Two Bacillus thuringiensis δ-Endotoxins with the Digestive System of Lygus hesperus
The active-toxin form of Cry1Ac (65 kDa) or Cry2Ab was fed to a non-susceptible insect, Lygus hesperus, in an artificial diet. Biochemical and immunocytochemical methods were used to determine theExpand
Absorption of horseradish peroxidase in Bombyx mori larval midgut.
TLDR
The role of the cytoskeleton in HRP transport was investigated by assessing the impact of drugs affecting microtubules and actin filaments and the analysis of HRP influx as a function of increasing protein concentration in the lumen supported this morphological indication. Expand

The prolamin, zein and CMTI-1 proteins are suitable candidates for expression as foreign proteins in pasture plants to increase throughput and uptake of essential amino acids in sheep. Expand
Peritrophic envelope permeability in herbivorous insects
TLDR
P pores in the peritrophic membranes of Lepidoptera and Orthoptera are too large to allow the PE to function as an effective size-dependent ultrafilter for digestive enzymes and free plant allelochemicals, and the permeability of the PE is determined by the chemical properties of the matrix. Expand
The Ultrastructure of the Digestive and Excretory Organs
Within the digestive tract, the ingested food is broken down into simpler molecules by the action of enzymes and thus rendered absorbable through the gut wall. The midgut is composed of a longExpand

TLDR
The presence of alpha-amylase in the salivary gland complexes of G. punctipes indicates a disposition of this species toward utilization of nutrients that can be derived only from plants, either directly from ingestion of plant macromolecules or from second-hand ingestion of plants material from the digestive system of their prey.

Induction of Elastase in a Zoophytophagous Heteropteran, Lygus hesperus (Hemiptera: Miridae)
TLDR
Elastase activity was much greater in the salivary gland complex (SGC) of individuals fed elastin-containing diet than it was in those fed the control diet, indicating the inducibility of this proteolytic enzyme, especially in the SGC. Expand
Effects of phytohemagglutinin (PHA) on the structure of midgut epithelial cells and localization of its binding sites in western tarnished plant bug, Lygus hesperus Knight.
TLDR
Investigating the lethal effect, target tissues and binding sites of phytohemagglutinin (PHA), a lectin from Phaseolus vulgaris L., on the western tarnished plant bug showed that PHA binds preferentially to the midgut region which demonstrates the most severe effects, and that these cells may endocytose the bound PHA.

Transport of peroxidase through the midgut epithelium of Glossina M. Morsitans (diptera, glossinidae).
TLDR
Peroxidase was incorporated from the hemolymph into fat body cells, where it was found 2 hr and later after feeding, andPinocytosis of the tracer molecules, as an additional intracellular pathway to the intercellular route of transport, could not be demonstrated. Expand
Subcellular effects and localization of binding sites of phytohemagglutinin in the potato leafhopper, Empoasca fabae (Insecta: Homoptera: Cicadellidae)
TLDR
It is shown that midgut tissue was not autofluorescent and showed no fluorescent binding signal, and the PHA-E subunit, previously shown to be lethal, caused severe disruption, disorganization, and elongation of the brush border microvilli, and swelling of the epithelial cells into the lumen of the gut, leading to complete closure of theLumen.

Effect of different host substrates on hemipteran salivary protein profiles *
TLDR
Starved insects fed and salivated more than the non-starved insects, yet the protein components of the saliva were similar, and in contrast to the phytophagous insects, P. maculiventris showed minimal differences in salivary protein profiles after feeding on Trichoplusia ni or an artificial diet.

TLDR
The results from this study indicated the potential abilities of the two enzymes to attack pectic substances and starch in food crops and hence to have a possible potential application in polymer modification in food technology. Expand
