In contrast to our results, Helff (1926) found that in natural and in artifically induced metamorphosis the rates of histolysis of the opercular integument are equal on the left and right sides.
Simitar events, which involve the shedding or histolysis of the larval epidermis variously called "serosa" or "test," occur during development of some other spiralians, for example the stenocalymma larva of the scapho-pod mollusc Dentalium (Lacaze-Duthiers, 1856; after Buckland-Nicks et al.
The house cricket, Acheta domesticus, loses the ability to fly shortly after adult emergence due to programmed cell death and histolysis of the flight muscles.
On the basis of previous investigations we selected fecundity and flight muscle histolysis as additional traits for analysis, the first because it is a primary factor in the trade-off (Roff 1984, 1994b) and the second because it likely plays a role in the trade-off by shunting resources from the muscles to egg production (Zeta and Denno 1997).
Some evidence also suggests that they can induce tissue histolysis during inflammatory reactions (Jullien, 1927; Jacquemain et al.
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.
Wing morphs may differ in mating propensity early in the season, prior to flight muscle histolysis, but should not differ thereafter.
