Diapause factor producing cells in the suboesophageal ganglion of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L






Proc Jap Acad 43(1): 51-56

Diapause factor producing cells in the suboesophageal ganglion of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L

The subesophageal ganglion is the source of the factor responsible for the production of diapause eggs, and the brain activates the ganglion through the esophageal connectives. By surgical excising or transplanting experiments it was demonstrated that the site of production of diapause factor is a limited region of the subesophageal ganglion situated slightly caudad to its center. Histological and in toto observations on fresh materials show a pair of conspicuous neurosecretory cells. The function of producing the diapause factor is attributed to these cells.
