Control of diapause-factor secretion from the suboesophageal ganglion in the silkworm, Bombyx mori: the roles of the protocerebrum and tritocerebrum


, : Control of diapause-factor secretion from the suboesophageal ganglion in the silkworm, Bombyx mori: the roles of the protocerebrum and tritocerebrum. Journal of Insect Physiology 33(4): 279-285

To localize any functional areas in the brain which control the secretion of the diapuase factor from the suboesophageal ganglion in the Bombyx silkworm, various parts of the brain were excised or transected surgically. It was demonstrated that cortices slightly lateral to the median line on the dorsal side of the protocerebrum (Lmdp) are closely related to the inhibitory mechanism in the pupa producing non-diapause eggs. On the other hand, cortices of anterolateral areas on the ventral side of the protocerebrum (Alvp) participate in the stimulatory mechanism in the pupa producing diapause eggs. Moreover, it is suggested that the tritocerebrum is competent to stimulate secretion of the diapause factor from the suboesophageal ganglion not only in the pupae producing diapause eggs but also in the pupae producing non-diapause eggs. From these results, we propose a possible relationship between the Alvp, Lmdp and tritocerebrum concerning regulation of diapause-factor secretion from the suboesophageal ganglion.
