.... pHCl-2 is expressed in the Malpighian tubules, which are non-innervated renal-type secretory tissues. We demonstrate that pHCl-2 is localized to the apical membrane of the epithelial principal cells of the tubules and that loss of pHCl-2 reduces urine production during diuresis. Our data implicate pHCl...

... by diuresis and stored until it is digested. While serotonin is known to be a diuretic hormone in R. prolixus , a peptidergic factor(s) was also known to play a role in diuresis. In the present study we employed molecular techniques and mass spectrometry to determine the sequence of a native CRF-like peptide...

...Geoffrey M. Coast SUMMARY The pioneering work of Simon Maddrell established that the rapid postprandial diuresis of the haematophagous insect Rhodnius prolixus is controlled by a diuretic hormone and demonstrated the role of the Malpighian tubules in meeting the volumic, osmotic and ionic...

... the flight pay load upon eclosion from the aquatic habitat. The non-selective NaCl and KCl diuresis stems from the increase in septate junctional Cl - conductance activated by leucokinin using Ca 2+ as second messenger. Fundamental to diuretic mechanisms are powerful epithelial transport mechanisms...

...V. A. Te Brugge; S. M. Miksys; G. M. Coast; D. A. Schooley; I. Orchard ABSTRACT The blood-feeding bug Rhodnius prolixus ingests a large blood meal, and this is followed by a rapid diuresis to eliminate excess water and salt. Previous studies have demonstrated that serotonin and an unidentified...
