Sample text

Urate appears to be stored primarily as salts of Na+, but also K+ and possibly NH+ 4 when concentrations of these ions increase, during dehydration. These ions can then be released during rehydration. Urate appears to be present in fat body ‘spherules’, formed as concentric laminations and typically about 9–11 mm in diameter (Tucker, 1977a). Urate and K+ are mobilized from the spherules during dehydration, whereas sodium urate deposits increase at the same time (Tucker 1977a,b). Sodium urate may be present as amorphous granules as well as spherules.

Phloem sap of these plants thus contains supra-optimal amounts of nitrogen with regard to whitefly nutrition. However, after just a few days of feeding on low nitrogen plants, excretion of amino nitrogen essentially stops and there is an adjustment of pools of individual amino acids within the insect bodies (Crafts-Brandner, 2002). Total nitrogen content of whiteflies reared on plants with reduced nitrogen content does not decline significantly relative to whiteflies reared on plants with higher levels of nitrogen.

The axopods of the Rhodnius lower Malpighian tubule differ from those in protozoa in that they branch as they extend outward from the luminal cell surface. The beating of the axopods moves urate crystals, as observed in short lengths of lower tubules, isolated in vitro and open at both ends. Tubules isolated in this way are unaffected by fluid movements produced by peristalsis in the rectum or fluid secretion by the upper tubule. The lower tubule itself is reabsorptive rather than secretory, and time lapse photography studies by Bradley and Satir (1979) show an absence of peristalsis during movement of urate crystals in the lumen.
