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 ...
Transcriptomic survey of the midgut of anthonomus grandis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
(Oxford University Press, 2014-12)
Anthonomus grandis Boheman is a key pest in cotton crops in the New World. Its larval stage develops within the flower bud using it as food and as protection against its predators. This behavior limits the effectiveness ...
A novel type 1 cystatin involved in the regulation of Rhipicephalus microplus midgut cysteine proteases
Rhipicephalus microplus is a cattle ectoparasite found in tropical and subtropical regions around the world with great impact on livestock production. R. microplus can also harbor pathogens, such as Babesia sp. and Anaplasma ...

(Alireza Asem, 2013-06-27)
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the alkaline phosphatase activity in haemocytes and midgut gland of the argentine shrimp Artemesia longinaris in relationship with different doses of vitamin D3 in feed ...
Comparative analysis of the midgut microbiota of two natural tick vectors of Rickettsia rickettsii
Although the ticks Amblyomma sculptum and Amblyomma aureolatum are important vectors of Rickettsia rickettsii, causative agent of the life-threatening Rocky Mountain spotted fever, A. aureolatum is considerably more ...
Carotenoids in Integument, Muscle, and Midgut Gland of Red Shrimp Pleoticus muelleri Bate, 1888 (Crustacea, Penaeoidea) Fed Carotenoid-Supplemented Diets
(Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology (SIAMB), 2011-08)
Carotenoids stimulate immune systems in animals. Since animals cannot synthesize carotenoids, they must be included in feeds. Oxidative pathways suggested for the metabolism of dietary carotenoids include β-carotene and ...
Effect of salinity changes on the midgut gland of Artemesia longinaris (Decapoda, Penaeidae)Efecto de los cambios de salinidad sobre el hepatopáncreas de Artemesia longinaris (Decapoda, Penaeidae)
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2017)
The neuropeptide CCHamide2 regulates diuresis in the Chagas disease vector Rhodnius prolixus
(Company of Biologists, 2019-05)
Given that hematophagous insects ingest large quantities of blood in a single meal, they must undergo a rapid post-prandial diuresis in order to maintain homeostasis. In the kissing bug Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera: ...
Characterized non-transient microbiota from stinkbug (Nezara viridula) midgut deactivates soybean chemical defenses
(Public Library of Science, 2018-07)
The Southern green stinkbug (N. viridula) feeds on developing soybean seeds in spite of their strong defenses against herbivory, making this pest one of the most harmful to soybean crops. To test the hypothesis that midgut ...
