Characteristics and development of the tyrosine-rich protein granules in the adipose tissue of the curculionid beetle Sitophilus oryzae.

Abstract : In the Curculionid beetle Sitophilus oryzae, the fat body is composed of one type of adipocyte, interstitial cells and oenocytes. Synthesis and storage of tyrosine-rich-protein granules (TRPG) in adipocytes are observed during all the larval and prepupal stages (except the first larval instar which has not been studied). They appear first in the posterior part of the fat body, around the nucleus of adipocytes. They progressively invade the cytoplasm. In the young pupa, TRPG are present in every part of the body, including the head and the appendages in formation. TRPG grow in size by fusing together. Their mean diameter is 6 mum, but some of them reach up to 50 mum. They present a basic core and an acidic periphery. Their charge in tyrosine increases until the prepupa. They are APS and lipid negative and contain no RNA. During metamorphosis they take on a reticulated structure, evoking a golf ball, and disintegrate into small granules, the tyrosine content of which diminishes drastically, especially in contact with epidermal cells, whence tyrosine is probably transferred. TRPG in S. oryzae contain 16 different insoluble proteins. Five of them are tyrostaurins characterized by their very high content in tyrosine (up to 27%) and their strict insolubility in aqueous solution. Arylphorin-like proteins have not been detected in S. oryzae granules.
