Chemical signals in the termite Anacanthotermes ahngerianus Jacobson (Isoptera, Hodotermitidae)


, : Chemical signals in the termite Anacanthotermes ahngerianus Jacobson (Isoptera, Hodotermitidae). Wilde, J de Chairman: De Wilde, J : Proceedings of the Eighth International Congress of the International Union for the Study of Social Insects Wageningen, The Netherlands, September 5-10, 1977: 50-51

Differences in the histology of the sternal gland in different castes of Anacanthotermes ahngerianus (Jacobs.) are described, and discussed in relation to the secretion from it of chemical compounds that act as messengers in foraging, defence and mating.

CK2 is a pleiotropic protein kinase, which phosphorylates many substrates and has a global role in promoting cell survival and preventing apoptosis. In this study, we investigated its involvement in the phenomenon of the drug resistance, by which...
