Oocyte maturation in oviparous animals is characterized by a vitellogenic period during which all maternally derived yolk protein precursors are sequestered in the oocyte, usually through receptor-mediated endocytosis (Bu and Schwartz, 1994; Sappington and Raikhel, 1995, 1998; Raikhel and Snigirevskaya, 1998; Burmester and Scheller, 1999). Large amounts of maternal lipids are also sequestered (Speake and Thompson, 1999), and lipid accumulation in eggs has been reported in many insects (for reviews, see Engelmann, 1970; Kunkel and Nordin, 1985). Important egg lipids are phospholipids for membrane formation during embryogenesis, and triacylglycerol is used mainly as an energy source. Surprisingly though, there are few quantitative studies on apolar lipids in insect eggs, even though both embryos and neonates in most insects require extensive waterproofing. Nelson and Sukkestad (1970) found complex mixtures of branched HCs, including mono-, di- and trimethyl HCs in eggs of the moth Manduca sexta ...

We are interested in the regulation of metamorphosis not only from a developmental point of view but also from an evolutionary perspective. As most information has been obtained in holometabolan species (mainly in the fly Drosophila melanogaster and the beetle Tribolium castaneum), we focus our research on the cockroach Blattella germanica, a phylogenetically basal species showing a gradual metamorphosis that might be close to the ancestral hemimetaboly. We aim at elucidating the mechanisms that regulate metamorphosis in B. germanica and then to compare them with those operating in holometabolans. The idea is to infer the evolutionary history underlying the transition from hemimetaboly to holometaboly ...
Blattabacterium strain Bge is the primary endosymbiont of the cockroach Blattella germanica. It is a Gram-negative maternally inherited bacteria which lives in specialized cells in the hosts abdominal fat body. Phylogenetic analyses for the Blattabacterium-cockroach symbiosis supports the hypothesis of co-evolution between symbionts and hosts dating back to more than 140 million years ago. Cockroaches are omnivorous insects, often subsisting on a nitrogen-poor diet, and Blattabacterium have been hypothesized to participate in uric acid degradation, nitrogen assimilation, and nutrient provisioning. Genome sequencing and metabolic reconstruction shows that Blattabacterium can recycle nitrogen from urea and ammonia, which are uric acid degradation products, into glutamate, using urease and glutamate dehydrogenase, and thus would be able to provide its host with some essential amino acids, vitamins and cofactors. The bacterium relies on Pro, Gln and Asn supplied by the host. It encodes the complete ...
BioMed Research International is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies covering a wide range of subjects in life sciences and medicine. The journal is divided into 55 subject-specific sections.
The ability of the Blattella germanica to respond to immunological stimulations is limited when compared to that of the mammalian system. Granulocytes are a basic blood cell type found in most animals; in humans these cells divide and differentiate into basophils, eosinophils, and neutrophils, among others. These cells make up a small portion of the total blood cells found in mammals. In the German cockroach, however, the granulocyte is the most predominate blood cell type, making up 94% of the total cell count. Since this cell was overwhelmingly prevalent in the cockroach, it was studied to determine how many antigenic surface receptors it contained on its membrane. The study began by injecting New Zealand rabbits with granulocytes, isolated from the German cockroach to stimulate antibody production. Using rabbit antigranulocytes serum for Western blot analysis, seven antigenic surface determinants were identified and their molecular weights were determined.
Within Anura, direct development involves ontogenetic changes of the biphasic ancestral pattern. The recent partitioning of the genus Eleutherodactylus, along with the proposition of the unranked taxon Terrarana, has renewed an interest to the morphological and ecological diversity among direct-developing frogs. The morphological changes during embryonic development of Oreobates barituensis is similar to those of other Neotropical direct-developing species, including the reduction or absence of several larval and embryonic characters (e.g., external gills and adhesive glands), heterochronic changes (e.g., early developing limbs and late persistence of ciliated epidermal cells), and the appearance of new structures (e.g., egg tooth). The tail achieves an extraordinary peramorphic development (encloses the entire embryo), and the location of its expanded part is interpreted as a heterotopic change resulting in a novel trait. An enveloping tail with apparently non-heterotopic fins, combined with the

Ocelli : Two types of simple eyes can be found in the class Insecta: dorsal Ocelli and lateral Ocelli (=stemmata). Although both types of Ocelli are similar in structure, they are believed to have separate phylogenetic and embryological origins. Dorsal Ocelli are commonly found in adults and in the immature stages (nymphs) of many hemimetabolous species. They are not independent visual organs and never occur in species that lack compound eyes. Whenever present, dorsal Ocelli appear as two or three small, convex swellings on the dorsal or facial regions of the head. They differ from compound eyes in having only a single corneal lens covering an array of several dozen rhabdom-like sensory rods. These simple eyes do not form an image or perceive objects in the environment, but they are sensitive to a wide range of wavelengths, react to the polarization of light, and respond quickly to changes in light intensity. No exact function has been clearly established, but many physiologists believe they ...

Cockroaches are terrestrial insects that strikingly eliminate waste nitrogen as ammonia instead of uric acid. Blattabacterium cuenoti (Mercier 1906) strains Bge and Pam are the obligate primary endosymbionts of the cockroaches Blattella germanica and Periplaneta americana, respectively. The genomes of both bacterial endosymbionts have recently been sequenced, making possible a genome-scale constraint-based reconstruction of their metabolic networks. The mathematical expression of a metabolic network and the subsequent quantitative studies of phenotypic features by Flux Balance Analysis (FBA) represent an efficient functional approach to these uncultivable bacteria. We report the metabolic models of Blattabacterium strains Bge (iCG238) and Pam (iCG230), comprising 296 and 289 biochemical reactions, associated with 238 and 230 genes, and 364 and 358 metabolites, respectively. Both models reflect both the striking similarities and the singularities of these microorganisms. FBA was used to analyze the
[Microdontomerus impolitus sp. n. and Liodontomerus centaureae sp. n. are described from cynipid galls on Tragopogon and Centaurea respectively. New host and distributional data are given for M. crassipes Bouček. L. papaveris (Förster), Chalcimerus borceai Steffan & Andriescu and Megastigmus dumicola Bouček, and generic characters of Microdontomerus and Liodontomerus are commented upon., A group of species belonging to the Ectobiinae is described in which the male genitalia show a reversed right-left asymmetry. The aberrant orientation can be explained by the mutation of a developmental gene regulating the right-left asymmetry of the last abdominal sternites. The hypothesis is put forward that similar mutations might also be responsible for the unique arrangement of the phallomere sclerites in the Plectopterinae and Blaberidae. The assumption of a symmetry reversal in the ancestors of these taxa is supported by the study of the muscular connections of the sclerites. As a consequence a new homology
Egg cases (oothecae) are attached to female abdomens for 28 to 30 days. The ootheca case is 1/4 to 3/8 inch long and holds 30 to 40 eggs. The female will deposit the egg case one to two days prior to the eggs hatching. Immature forms (nymphs) emerge and develop into adult forms in 1-1/2 to 4 months. Nymphs will molt approximately seven times in 60 days before becoming an adult. Females produce 4-5 oothecae during their lifetime of approximately 200 days. German cockroaches carry more eggs per case than other cockroach species. Their immatures complete growth in a shorter period of time, which makes it possible to have three to four generations per year.. ...
There are many types of cockroaches. The most popular types include; the American cockroach, the Australian cockroach, and the German cockroach. The German cockroach is the smallest and the most common species inside buildings. They are 12-15 mm and are to be found in food handling areas like the storerooms and kitchens. They cannot fly and mostly prefer areas near food, warmth, and moisture.. The Australian cockroach is larger than the German cockroach at 30-35 inches in length. It has a dark brown color and has yellow markings on the front wings and head. This type of cockroach unlike the German cockroach is to be found outdoors and prefers plant food. It is to be found among woodpiles and under the bark of trees.. The American cockroach is the largest cockroach measuring 30-45mm in length. It is red-brown in color and has a pale yellow border around the head. It can fly and prefers warm and moist conditions. It is very common in rubbish dumps, sewers, and drains..

Cockroaches are incredibly successful at coexisting with humans, even though we are less than thrilled with the prospect of sharing our homes with them. Amongst their many remarkable survival tactics, Don Mullins describes their ability to reproduce, by laying eggs in a protective case called an ootheca, as `spectacular. Some species abandon the ootheca soon after laying their eggs, but female German cockroaches carry the ootheca until the young hatch almost one month later. How liquid penetrates the apparently solid surface of the ootheca has puzzled scientists for well over a century, but Mullins has finally discovered the microscopic pore structures that keep oothecae hydrated (p. 2987).. Female German cockroaches fall somewhere between the two extremes on the cockroach parental-care spectrum. Having laid their eggs in the protective ootheca, they carry the case close to their abdomens, until the young are ready to hatch. However, without a constant supply of fluid, the young cockroaches may ...

N2 - The mode of insect embryogenesis varies among species, reflecting adaptations to different life history strategies [1, 2]. In holometabolous insects, which include the model systems, such as the fruit fly and the red flour beetle, a large proportion of the blastoderm produces an embryo, whereas hemimetabolous embryos generally arise from a small region of the blastoderm [3]. Despite their importance in evolutionary studies, information of early developmental dynamics of hemimetabolous insects remains limited. Here, to clarify how maternal and gap gene products act in patterning the embryo of basal hemimetabolous insects, we analyzed the dynamic ...

The barrel teaches us that it is often combinations of stressors which lead to what we perceive of as a disease. For example, asthma can be associated with a combination of respiratory tract infection, low magnesium levels, dust mite and cockroach allergy, egg intolerance and sensitivity to chemicals.. Since frequently there is not just one thing putting load on the system, we can easily make the mistake thinking that the last thing added was the causative factor - there may however be many other things "in the barrel".. "Lowering the level in the barrel", so to speak, can be done by removing things from inside the barrel or by making the barrel bigger. For example, in the case of asthma mentioned above, treating the infection, adding daily magnesium supplements, putting dust covers on pillows and mattresses, desensitizing for dust mite and cockroach allergy, removing eggs from the diet and minimizing chemical exposures would be positive contributions that would either minimize the need for ...
0104 is needed to induce significant PAR-4 expression. As it is unlikely to accumulate such a high concentration of the allergens in the body, upregulated PAR-1 and PAR-4 expression should not play an important role in cockroach allergy. In contrast, Per a 1.0101-induced upregulation of expression of PAR-2 may be involved in cockroach allergy as only 100 ng/ml. of Per a 1.0101 is required to induce significant increase in PAR-2 expression. Activation of PAR-2 has been recognized to play an important role in allergic diseases. Patients with asthma express an increased amount of PAR-2 on respiratory epithelial cells [20], and PAR-2 activation in human airways is associated with contraction learn more Obeticholic Acid of human airways and contributes to the hyperplasia and hyper-responsiveness evident in the asthmatic airway [21]. Furthermore, our results indicate that Per a 1.0101 and Per a 1.0104 are not proteases. Therefore, their actions on PARs should not depend on enzymatic activity. Once ...
To View what will really flourish in his particular garden, instead of breaking his heart over plants that are quite unsuited to his soil and climate, is advice which old gardeners continually find themselves impressing upon the beginner. I am induced to say a few words upon the so-called German Irises, because they are plants so good-natured as to do well in most places - even in town gardens - if treated with a moderate amount of kindness, and, when once planted, left undisturbed. I was told when I began to cultivate these Irises that they were fond of damp, and though I doubted the truth of the statement then, I have no doubt as to its untruth now; mine, at any rate, do best in the dry part of the garden. In damp places, the so-called germanica frequently waste away (that may of course be due to something peculiar in the soil), and are very much disfigured by slugs. I was told, too, that they would grow anywhere, and this is, roughly speaking, true; but they will not flower well unless they ...
Cockroaches are nocturnal by nature and spend the day hiding in cracks around areas like sinks, drains, cookers and the backs of service ducts. They may be seen if you come home in the dark and put the lights on. They also emit an unpleasant almond like smell - only noticeable if the infestation is large. The cockroach is a small species of cockroach, measuring about 1.3 cm to 1.6 cm (1/2″ to 5/8″) long.. It is tan to light brown, and has two dark parallel streaks running from the head to the base of the wings. Although it has wings, it is unable to sustain flight.Nymphs have a pale area centrally on the dorsal thorax. The cockroach is one of the most common and prominent household cockroaches in the world, and can be found throughout many human settlements in the world. These insects are particularly fond of inhabiting restaurants, food processing facilities, hotel rooms, and nursing homes. In colder climates, it is found only near human habitats. The German cockroach is originally from ...

Biology: Not such a prolific breeder as the German cockroach, the female usually deposits her egg case within about 30 hours after it is formed. It is either dropped or glued to something in a warm protected area close to a food source, for example; microwaves, ovens and fridge freezers. Development time is dependent upon temperature but it takes a male 575 and a female 602 days on average at room temperature.. Once the treatment has been carried out it is advised that the areas treated cannot be cleaned for at least 2-3 weeks and any dead roaches found after the treatment are left alone as other cockroaches will eat them and ingest the insecticide and die as a result of second generation poisoning.. Habits: In many areas this cockroach can survive quite well outside but does live mostly inside. They are found most times in cellars, voids and anywhere there is readily available food source. They feed on all types of food and decaying organic matter. Cockroaches will also feed on there own ...
Size:. Adults are about 1/2-inch in length.. Color:. Male is light brown. The female may have dark brown wings. Both sexes, however, have the lighter-colored bands running across the wings directly behind the prothorax.. Behavior:. Like all cockroaches that invade buildings, this species prefers to spend much of its time resting in cracks and voids. Most of its activity will occur at night when it feels safe to move about in search of food and water. The brown banded cockroach does not seem to require as much moisture as German cockroaches, and therefore may be found in rooms other than kitchens and bathrooms. Brown banded cockroaches are omnivorous and will eat anything that possesses organic matter, even organic glues used in books and cabinets.. ...
