Comparative analysis of secretory proteins of the salivary glands of larvae of species of the tribe Chironomini (Diptera, Chironomidae)

Entomological Review (English Translation of Entomologicheskoye Obozreniye) 75(8): 176-192
Comparative analysis of secretory proteins of the salivary glands of larvae of species of the tribe Chironomini (Diptera, Chironomidae)
We compared the protein composition of the larval salivary gland secretion of 19 species from five genera of the tribe Chironomini differing in habitat and behavior. We found that the particular characteristics of the secretion-presence of a secretion in the central reservoir of the salivary glands of the larvae, multiplicity of proteins in the secretion, their size range, and quantitative dominance of giant proteins in the secretion (GSP groups), are shared by all investigated species.
