Abstractln the holometabolan species Drosophila melanogaster, which has meroistic ovaries, Pipe sulfotransferase is one of the last proteins ¡nvolved in DA/ polar¡ty of the egg, which is expressed only in the ventral follicular cells thus act¡vating a series of proteases acting ¡n the per¡vitelline space between the embryonic membrane and the eggshell (Nilson and Schupbach, 1998; Sen etal. 1998; Cho et41.,2010). Pipe encodes ten different isoforms (Sen et al., 1998) and only one among them has been involved in embryonic DV axis polarity (Zhang et al.' 2009). Therefore, Pipe provides a link between the ovarian and embryonic DV polarity, as Pipe mutant females produced dorsalized embryos (Sen et al., 1998). Here, we report the function of Pipe in a hemimetabolan insect, the cockroach Blattella germanica, which has panoistic ovaries.
