Targeting Plasmodium ligands on mosquito salivary glands and midgut with a phage display peptide library
Despite vast efforts and expenditures in the past few decades, malaria continues to kill millions of persons every year, and new approaches for disease control are urgently needed. To complete its life cycle in the mosquito, ...
Long-term starvation and posterior feeding effects on biochemical and physiological responses of midgut gland of Cherax quadricarinatus juveniles (Parastacidae)
(Public Library of Science, 2016-03)
We investigated the effect of long-term starvation and posterior feeding on energetic reserves, oxidative stress, digestive enzymes, and histology of C. quadricarinatus midgut gland. The crayfish (6.27 g) were randomly ...
Comparison of dietary sterols on growth, survival and midgut gland histology of prawn Artemesia longinaris (Decapoda, Penaeidea)
(Israeli Journal Of Aquaculture-bamidgeh, 2013-02)
Two trials were conducted to evaluate the growth, survival and midgut gland histological conditions of Argentine prawn Artemesia longinaris nourished with diets having different sterols. Juvenile individuals of 0.97-1.01 ...
Effect of different diets on digestive enzyme activities, in vitro digestibility, and midgut gland structure in juvenile crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2016-10-17)
This study investigated the effects of food quality on digestive enzyme activities, in vitro protein digestibility and histological traits of the midgut gland in juvenile crayfish Cherax quadricarinatus. Animals of a wide ...
Virulence genes of Rickettsia rickettsii are differentially modulated by either temperature upshift or blood-feeding in tick midgut and salivary glands
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Abstract Background Rickettsia rickettsii, the etiological agent of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, is transmitted to humans by ticks. During ...
Toxicological and histopathological effects of boric acid on atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) workers
The current study compared the toxicity of different concentrations of boric acid in adult workers of Atta sexdens rubropilosa Forel (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), with toxicological bioassays, and examining the dose-dependent ...
A study of corpuscular DNA and midgut gland occupancy by putative symbiotic elements in Pomacea canaliculata (Caenogastropoda, Ampullariidae)
Morphology of pigmented corpuscles (C and K types) in the midgut gland of Pomacea canaliculata has suggested that they may be morphotypes of a prokaryotic symbiont. Both corpuscles were isolated from midgut gland tissue ...
Effect of salinity changes on the midgut gland of Artemesia longinaris (Decapoda, Penaeidae)
(Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2012)
