2000a). Studies with isolated tubules of D. , 2000b). Approximately 85% of calcium which enters the tubule is sequestered, and B15% is secreted in soluble form into the tubule lumen. Tubules secreting fluid at maximal rates can remove an amount of calcium equal to the whole animal calcium content in B 9 h. The distal segments of the anterior pair of Malpighian tubules can sequester the same amount of calcium ino2 h. The processes of secretion and sequestration are controlled independently. For example, although cAMP increases both basolateral uptake and transepithelial secretion of Ca2+, the calcium channel blockers diltiazem and verapamil inhibit only basolateral uptake.

The model proposed that acidification resulted from reabsorption of bicarbonate. Wigglesworth’s model was subsequently modified by Miles (1966), who suggested that acidification may be a direct result from anisotropy of oxidation-reduction during electron transport in the cells of the excretory system. A requirement of the models of both Wigglesworth and Miles is a significant flux of urate across the upper tubule. 3% of the uric acid eliminated by the insect. , 1983). The lower 1/3 of the lower tubule is also 36 MICHAEL O’DONNELL responsible for reabsorption of K+ and ClÀ but not water.

Sodium urate may be present as amorphous granules as well as spherules. It is suggested that uptake of Na+ by the fat body enables the animal to maintain a fairly constant level of Na+ in the hemolymph during dehydration, without having to excrete large amounts of Na+. Cochran (1985) has championed the idea that uric acid plays a central role in cockroach physiology. In addition to the ionoregulatory role for urates in maintenance of hemolymph Na+ levels, urate excretion plays a regulatory role in the nitrogen economy of cockroaches, with excretion in Parcoblatta fulvescens occurring only when excess nitrogen is available in the diet.
