Male insect accessory glands: functions and control of secretory activity

, : Male insect accessory glands: functions and control of secretory activity. Invertebrate Reproduction and Development. December; 301-3: 199-205

Paralleling the diversity of the class Insecta, the male accessory glands (MAG) exhibit a wide range of form, and their secretion serves a variety of functions, including spermatophore and mating plug formation, sperm activation, provision of nutrients to females, and, through production of fecundity-enhancing and/or receptivity-inhibiting substances, modification of female reproductive behaviour.

Our previous report showed that yam dioscorin and its peptic hydrolysates exhibit radical scavenging activities; however, the functions of these peptic hydrolases are still under investigation. In this study, the thiol-containing peptides derived...
