Vitellogenin synthesis in blood-fed Aedes aegypti in the absence of the head, thorax and ovaries



Vitellogenin synthesis in blood-fed Aedes aegypti in the absence of the head, thorax and ovaries



Journal of Insect Physiology 3011: 871-875



Rocket immunoelectrophoresis was used to investigate the function of mid-gut, ovaries and head in the onset of vitellogenin synthesis in females of Aedes aegypti following a blood-meal. Non-blood-fed females and those fed (by enema) blood containing soybean trypsin inhibitor never contained vitellogenin.
