Chitra, C and Sridhara, S (1973) Transport of sugars by the fat body of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. In: Journal of Insect Physiology, 19 (10). pp. 2053-2061.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The transport of glucose and α-methyl glucoside into the fat body of the silkworm, Bombyx mori L., has been studied. Glucose is transported into the tissue by a mechanism similar to facilitated diffusion and α-methyl glucoside by a diffusion process. The uptake of these sugars is neither energy dependent nor coupled to a phosphotransferase system.
