Published: 15 April 2012
...Bettina Schewe; Wolfgang Blenau; Bernd Walz SUMMARY Salivary gland cells of the blowfly Calliphora vicina have a vacuolar-type H + -ATPase (V-ATPase) that lies in their apical membrane and energizes the secretion of a KCl-rich primary saliva upon stimulation with serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine...

...Eric Calvo; José M. C. Ribeiro SUMMARY Previous analysis of the salivary gland transcriptome of Culex quinquefasciatus showed the potential presence of an endonuclease with sequence similarities to shrimp, crab and two tsetse salivary proteins. Indeed, not only was the cloned cDNA shown to encode...

...A. N. Gifford; R. A. Nicholson; R. M. Pitman ABSTRACT The salivary glands of the cockroach and locust are innervated primarily from two pairs of motoneurones, designated SN1 and SN2, in the suboesophageal ganglion. Intracellular cobalt fills and subsequent silver intensification were used to reveal...
