Search for peptidic molecular markers in hemolymph of crowd-(gregarious) and isolated-reared (solitary) desert locusts, Schistocerca gregaria.
An HPLC analysis of hemolymph extracts was undertaken to uncover differences between desert locusts, Schistocerca gregaria, reared under either crowded or isolated conditions. Some differences in the chromatographic pattern could be detected. One of the major peaks in the hemolymph of crowd-reared adults was found to be a minor one in isolated-reared individuals, whereas other peaks increased after solitarization. The differences became even more pronounced after several generations of isolat...Expand abstract
