Not only cuticular lipids: first evidence of differences between foundresses and their daughters in polar substances in the paper wasp Polistes dominulus.
Some proteins are transported to specific sites as required, such as cuticular proteins secreted from the epidermis during molting that originate in hemolymph (Reviewed in Neville 1975; Hopkins and Kramer 1992).
Scientists are also interested in what role these cuticular compounds--along with the alarm pheromones--play in canine detection of bed bugs.
The pathological specimen was showed lamellar cuticular membrane, active-chronic inflammation and fibrosis which were relevant for cyst hydatid diagnosis.

Textbooks, she said, describe the roots of the stereocilia ending in the cuticular plate.
They then discovered that the profiles of different pheromones that flies produce, called cuticular hydrocarbons, change with age.
