Ecdysteroids in females and eggs of the ixodid tick Amblyomma hebraeum


Ecdysteroids in females and eggs of the ixodid tick Amblyomma hebraeum



International Journal of Invertebrate Reproduction and Development 82: 103-116



DOI: 10.1080/01688170.1985.10510132

Mated females of Amblyomma hebraeum engorged on a host for about 8 days before detaching and beginning the maturation of a single egg batch which was laid over a period of about 30 days. The feeding period was characterized by an important synthesis of endocuticular material occurring before the rapid feeding phase. This latter phase, correlated with an enormous weight uptake, showed an increase of ecdysteroid levels measured in the whole animal by radioimmunoassay.
