Plant/aphid system designed for pharmacological testing. A cut stem with two or three leaves of pea Vicia Faba was placed in a microfuge tube (1.5 ml) filled with either chemical (treated) (50 μM) or water (control). A: Brdu (bromo-deoxyuridine), B: Br-cAMP, C: Br-cGMP. Few aphids (a) were then placed on the leaves for 10 hours then after on a fresh plant for three days before further investigation.
