A recent study of the vitellogenic process of Culex quinquefasciatus (Cardoso et al., 2010) opened some questions that we intend to answer in this project. 1. It is well known in several insects that yolk granules also carry the proenzymes that will hydrolyze vitellin during embryogenesis. We have already established by mass spectrometry the presence of two cathepsins B and a cathepsin ...
A recent study of the vitellogenic process of Culex quinquefasciatus (Cardoso et al., 2010) opened a series of questions that we intend to answer in this project. 1. It is known in several insects that the yolk granules alsp carry the precursors of enzymes that will hydrolyze the vitellin during embryogenesis. We intend to characterize these enzymes and determine their place of synthesi...

Preliminary studies of Culex quinquefasciatus vitellogenic ovaries during the first gonotrophic cycle (Cardoso et al., 2010) showed, around 48 hours after the blood meal, the presence of electron-dense vesicles at the apical surface of the follicular epithelium, possibly participating in forming one of the chorion layers. Simultaneously, electrophoresis of ovarian extracts detected the ...
