Purification, identification, concentration and bioactivity of (Z)-7-dodecen-1-yl acetate: sex pheromone of the female Asian elephant, Elephas maximus.
In their natural ecosystems, adult male and female Asian elephants, Elephas maximus, live separately. For several weeks prior to ovulation, female elephants release a substance in their urine whichExpand
Identification of a New Blend of Apple Volatiles Attractive to the Apple Maggot, Rhagoletis pomonella
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify a new blend of volatiles from apples as the key attractants forExpand
Insect pheromone in elephants
Cloning, expression and characterization of an organic solvent tolerant lipase from Pseudomonas fluorescens JCM5963
Abstract A novel lipase gene from an organic solvent degradable strain Pseudomonas fluorescens JCM5963 was cloned, sequenced, and overexpressed as an N-terminus His-tag fusion protein in E. coli. TheExpand
Stimulatory Beetle Volatiles for the Asian Longhorned Beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky)
Two male-specific beetle volatiles were found that elicited strong gas chromatographic-electroantennographic responses from both sexes of Asian longhorned beetle adults, Anoplophora glabripennis. Expand
Evidence for contact sex recognition pheromone of the Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
Field observations of the Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) mating behavior in China suggested that a female-produced contact pheromone was almost certainly involved in sexExpand
Identification and synthesis of female sex pheromone of Oriental beetle,Anomala orientalis (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
Females of the Oriental beetle,Anomala orientalis (Waterhouse), release a sex pheromone composed of a 9:1 blend of (Z)- and (E)-7-tetradecen-2-one. The double-bond position of the pheromone wasExpand
Lanierone: A new pheromone component fromIps pini (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in New York
A new pheromone component, lanierone, (2-hydroxy-4,4,6-trimethyl-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-one) was isolated and identified from a Porapak Q collection of volatiles from maleIps pini from New York throughExpand
Identification and Field Evaluation of Grape Shoot Volatiles Attractive to Female Grape Berry Moth (Paralobesia viteana)
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify volatile compounds from shoots of riverbank grape (Vitis riparia)Expand
Behavioral and Antennal Responses of Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) to Volatiles From Fruit Extracts
ABSTRACT Native to Southeast Asia, the spotted wing drosophila, Drosophila suzukii Matsumura (Diptera: Drosophilidae), has become a serious pest of soft-skinned fruit crops since its introductionExpand
