Abstract

1. 1. Starvation of35-day-old adult male cockroaches (Periplaneta americana L.) for up to 6 days leads to a marked depletion of the glycogen and glucose content of the fat body but not of the thoracic musculature. 2. 2. Flight of fed or starved insects leads to a depletion of the carbohydrate content of the thoracic musculature but not of the fat body. The haemolymph trehalose concentration falls and the glucose concentration rises during flight of fed insects. 3. 3. Between 45 min and 2 hr after cessation of flight there is a marked increase in the glycogen content of the thoracic musculature and a concomitant fall in the glycogen content of the fat body. © 1984.
