... to a longer ecdysis cycle and smaller individuals. This phenotype was mirrored in shrimps injected with novel miR-26 agomirs, but the opposite phenotype occurred in shrimps injected with novel miR-26 antagomirs (i.e. the ecdysis cycle was shortened and body length was increased). After injection of 20...

...Amir Ayali SUMMARY A possible role of the insect stomatogastric nervous system (STNS) in ecdysis was first implied in early studies reporting on internal air pressure build-up in the digestive tract and air swallowing during ecdysis. The frontal ganglion, a major component of the insect STNS...

...Y. Zilberstein; J. Ewer; A. Ayali SUMMARY In insects, continuous growth requires the periodic replacement of the exoskeleton during the moult. A moulting insect displays a stereotypical set of behaviours that culminate in the shedding of the old cuticle at ecdysis. Moulting is an intricate process...

... of a neuroendocrine system to stimulate ecdysis, the behaviors used to shed the old cuticle at the culmination of each molt. Here we show that two evolutionarily conserved transcription factor genes, the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) gene dimmed ( dimm )and the basic-leucine zipper (bZIP) gene cryptocephal ( crc...

Several hours after ecdysis, the new exocuticle layer of the exoskeleton stained positively for cryptocyanin. When the new endocuticle layer was initially...

... as the primary route for the removal of MF prior to ecdysis. However, it seemed plausible that alternative routes such as transepidermal resorption and resorption of MF through the hindgut might also contribute to its removal. In an attempt to test these possibilities, we tracked the movement of FITC-inulin...

We found that skin resistance to TEWL increases twofold following the first postnatal ecdysis, corresponding with a roughly twofold increase in thickness and deposition of lamellar lipids in the mesos layer, the site of the skin...

Surgical experiments involving the transection of the nerve cord or removal of parts of the brain showed that the proctodeal nerve activity...
