Morphology and histology of the alimentary tract of adult palm weevil, Rhynchophorus phoenicis Fabricius (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

Palm weevil (Rhynchophorus phoenicis) is a notorious pest of oil palm trees, worldwide. Investigations were conducted on the alimentary tract of the adult insect. Results of the morphology and histology of the alimentary tract revealed that the alimentary tract consisted of a foregut, which was made up of a buccal cavity, oesophagus, crop and proventriculus. The crop big or small and the proventriculus had bristle...

Markers are shared between adipogenic and osteogenic differentiated mesenchymal stem cells

The stem cell differentiation paradigm is based on the progression of cells through generations of daughter cells that eventually become restricted and committed to one lineage resulting in fully differentiated cells. Herein, we report on the differentiation of adult human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) towards adipogenic and osteogenic lineages using established protocols. Lineage specific genes were evaluated by...
