Extracellular organization of an insect mucus elaborated by Malpighian tubules

Extracellular organization of an insect mucus elaborated by Malpighian tubules

Cellular and Molecular Biology 30(4): 353-356

The extracellular organization of the mucus secreted by the Malpighian tubules of worker larvae of Bombus atratus was studied by EM using preparations stained with ruthenium red (RR). The mucus was composed of thin filaments and dense bodies. The filaments, predominantly parallel to the long axis of the microvilli, interconnected the dense bodies.
