In addition, [alpha]-TUB was an appropriate reference gene for gene expression profiling in the midgut, Malpighian
tubules and the fat body of Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Tephritidae) for determining differences between males and females in gene expression in these tissues (Shen et al.
One theory holds that uric acid in fat body is transported via the Malpighian
tubules to the hindgut, where it undergoes anaerobic digestion by uricolytic bacteria (Breznak 2000).
Female mosquitoes rely on their kidneys (called Malpighian
tubules) when consuming a human blood meal.
Associated with the digestive tract, but part of the excretory system, are the Malpighian
tubules (Figure 4).
The interface between the external surfaces of the prostheses and the capsule consisted of Malpighian
Conversely, Rokitansky, (25) in his 1885 text Manual of Pathological Anatomy, indicated that the consensus among German pathologists was that renal cysts formed within the malpighian
corpuscle "when tumified and gorged with the inflammatory product of these diseases upon the surrounding strata.
Secretory products of the Malpighian
tubules of Cicadellidae (Hemiptera, Membracoidea): an ultrastructural study.
Many holometabolous insects exhibit similar behavior, but neuropterans are unusual because their silk is produced by Malpighian
tubules (excretory organs) and spun from the anus.
to identify the materials passing through a spider's anus, since the majority of this material consists of the products of post-assimilatory metabolic processes from the Malpighian
tubules, rather than undigested matter.
What we observed was quite intriguing: in Celera, Cyp6g1 was expressed in the midgut, the Malpighian
tubules and the fat body, the tissues 'traditionally' associated with the detoxification of xenobiotics.
Native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis with [alpha]- and [beta]-naphthyl acetate as substrates revealed six general esterase isozymes (Esterase 1-6) in whole body homogenates of larvae, pupae, and adults and tissue extracts (alimentary canal, fat body, Malpighian
tubules, and salivary glands) of T.
