Cuticular lipids of larvae and adults of the cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne☆
There were qualitative and quantitative differences between the cuticular lipids extracted from the larval and adult stages of the cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne. Triacylglycerols were theExpand
Hydrocarbons in the surface wax of eggs and adults of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata.
The major components of the egg hydrocarbons were dimethylalkanes (40%) and trimethylalkanes (24%) in which the first methyl branch was on carbon 2. The major dimethylalkanes were an approximatelyExpand
External lipids of adults of the giant whitefly, Aleurodicus dugesii
Abstract The external lipids of male and female adults of the giant whitefly, Aleurodicus dugesii , were found in three forms; as cuticular lipids, as waxy particles, and only on the females, as waxyExpand
Novel wax esters and hydrocarbons in the cuticular surface lipids of the red harvester ant, Pogonomyrmex barbatus.
The cuticular surface lipids of the red harvester ant, Pogonomyrmex barbatus, were found to contain minor amounts of novel wax esters, in addition to the major components, hydrocarbons. The waxExpand
Re-analysis of the cuticular methylalkanes of Solenopsis invicta and S. richteri
Gas chromatographic retention times and electron impact and chemical ionization mass spectrometry were used to identify two new series of dimethylalkanes in Solenopsis invicta Buen and SolenopsisExpand
Cuticular hydrocarbons of tsetse flies II:Glossina fuscipes fuscipes, G. palpalis palpalis, G. p. gambiensis, G. tachinoides, andG. brevipalpis
The alkanes (methylalkanes) were analyzed from both sexes of four members of thepalpalis group of tsetse flies,Glossina fuscipes fuscipes, G. palpalis gambiensis, G. palpalis palpalis, G. tachinoidesExpand
Cuticular lipids of female solitary bees, Osmia lignaria Say and Megachile rotundata (F.) (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae).
The cuticular lipids of the cavity-nesting adult female solitary bees, Osmia lignaria Say and Megachile rotundata (F.) (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae), were analyzed by gas chromatography (GC) andExpand
Developmental changes in cuticular lipids of the black carpet beetle, Attagenus megatoma
Abstract The proportions of the major lipid classes extracted from the cuticle of the black carpet beetle, Attagenus megatoma, remained relatively constant throughout the larval period (about 260Expand
Synthetic methyl- and dimethylalkanes
All possible isomeric mono-methylpentacosanes as well as 2,6-, 2,8-, 2,10-, 2,12-, and 2,14-dimethylheptacosane were synthesized. The [13C]NMR shifts and the Kovats indices were determined, and theExpand
Insect hydrocarbons
Dimethylalkanes with one, three, four, five, and seven methylene units separating the methyl branches were synthesized and analyzed by mass spectrometry for comparison with the spectra ofExpand
