.... However, original texts and the list of studied species (>350) are now available online. Recently, we minimized the system to three components: the proximal tibial ledge, the tendon and the arculum. The elastic tendon contains resilin. In four model species, the arculum readily turned upon stretching...

...Emily A. Mistick; Andrew M. Mountcastle; Stacey A. Combes ABSTRACT Insect wings do not contain intrinsic musculature to change shape, but rather bend and twist passively during flight. Some insect wings feature flexible joints along their veins that contain patches of resilin, a rubber-like protein...
