Involvement of apolipohorin in flight muscle histolysis. (South Carolina Academy of Sciences Abstracts).

Flight muscle histolysis in the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, is induced by juvenile hormone (JH) and is an example of active programmed cell death that requires de novo protein synthesis. We have used polymerase chain reaction (PCF) to examine the possible involvement apolipophorin 111 in the process of histolysis. Apolipophorin has been shown to be involved in other models of insect programmed cell death and to be a factor that promotes insect immune responses. Our goals are to characterize the tissue expression patterns for the messenger RNA of this gene at different stages of histolysis.
