Lepidopteran sex pheromones.
As a consequence of the diversity of Lepidoptera, including 150,000 described species, interesting species-specific sex pheromone systems are exhibited in this insect group. The quite variedExpand

The Cenozoic palaeoenvironment of the Arctic Ocean
The history of the Arctic Ocean during the Cenozoic era (0–65 million years ago) is largely unknown from direct evidence. Here we present a Cenozoic palaeoceanographic record constructed from >400 mExpand

Pheromone gland-specific fatty-acyl reductase of the silkmoth, Bombyx mori
The C10-C18 unsaturated, acyclic, aliphatic compounds that contain an oxygenated functional group (alcohol, aldehyde, or acetate ester) are a major class of sex pheromones produced by female moths.Expand

A salinity-related occurrence of a novel alkenone and alkenoate in Late Pleistocene sediments from the Japan Sea
Abstract The novel alkenoate, ethyl tetratriacontadienoate (C34:2EE), has been found in late Quaternary sediments of the Japan Sea by using gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS). ItExpand

Out of the Tropics: The Pacific, Great Basin Lakes, and Late Pleistocene Water Cycle in the Western United States
Changing Rains The water cycle of the western United States has varied dramatically across the glacial cycles of the Pleistocene, possibly because of changes in the tracks of the storms that deliverExpand

Involvement of a bifunctional fatty-acyl desaturase in the biosynthesis of the silkmoth, Bombyx mori, sex pheromone.
The straight-chain C(10) to C(18) unsaturated aliphatic compounds containing an oxygenated functional group (aldehyde, alcohol, or acetate ester) derived from saturated C(16) or C(18) fatty acids areExpand

Temporal changes in settlement, lipid content and lipid composition of larvae of the spawning hermatypic coral Acropora tenuis
Stored lipids in marine planktonic larvae play an important role in buoyancy and as an energy source and thus are a key to understanding the dispersal and settlement potential of larvae. However,Expand

Glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers and TEX86 index in sinking particles in the western North Pacific
Abstract Seasonal and depth variation in the flux of glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (GDGTs) and TEX 86 ( TEX 86 H and TEX 86 L ) values in sinking particles was examined by conducting a 21Expand

The California current system during the last 136,000 years: response of the North Pacific High to precessional forcing
Abstract Alkenone sea surface temperature (SST) records were generated from the Ocean Drilling Program's (ODP) Sites 1014 and 1016 to examine the response of the California Current System to globalExpand
