GCxGC/TOF MS technique-A new tool in identification of insect pheromones: Analysis of the persimmon bark borer sex pheromone gland.
TLDR
GCxGC/TOFMS facilitated theAnalysis of complex matrices on a subnanogram level and was shown to have great potential as a powerful tool in the analysis of insect pheromones.
Sexual communication in the termite Prorhinotermes simplex (Isoptera, Rhinotermitidae) mediated by a pheromone from female tergal glands
TLDR
It is hypothesize that (3Z,6Z,8E)-dodeca-3,6,8-trien-1-ol is a major component of the female sex pheromone in P. simplex.
Stylopsal: The First Identified Female-produced Sex Pheromone of Strepsiptera
TLDR
A female-produced sex pheromone of Stylops muelleri was identified as an unusually branched saturated aldehyde (9R)-3, 5-syn-3,5,9-trimethyldodecanal, which gave identical chromatographic and mass spectrometric data as the natural phersomone and also was active in electroantennographic and behavioral assays.
Analysis of triacylglycerols in fat body of bumblebees by chromatographic methods.
TLDR
The composition of both FAs and TAGs was found to be species-specific, and only minor differences were found among specimens of the same species.
Analysis of Insect Cuticular Hydrocarbons Using Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry
TLDR
The ability of MALDI to discriminate among species varying in the degree of their relatedness was found to be similar to GC/MS, and a number of previously undiscovered hydrocarbons were detected in the high mass range beyond the analytical capabilities of current GC/ MS instruments.
Computer-assisted interpretation of atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectra of triacylglycerols.
TLDR
An algorithm for the automated interpretation of TAGs from atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectra (TriglyAPCI) is presented in this paper and the software performance is demonstrated for the liquid chromatography/mass spectrometric (LC/MS) analysis ofTAGs isolated from the termite Prorhinotermes canalifrons.
Composition and electrophysiological activity of constituents identified in male wing gland secretion of the bumblebee parasite Aphomia sociella.
TLDR
The strong antennal responses elicited by components of the secretion suggest that one or more of these compounds constitute the sex pheromone in bumble bee wax moth Aphomia.
Selective olfactory attention of a specialised predator to intraspecific chemical signals of its prey
TLDR
The chemical cognitive capacity of Z. rubidum to locate its ant prey using chemical signals produced by the ants is demonstrated, confirming trophic specialisation at lower than subfamily level.
Do ant mimics imitate cuticular hydrocarbons of their models?
TLDR
The results show that ant-mimicking spiders must use other means to evade their models to increase their survival among model ants, such as behavioural avoidance.
A comparison of HPLC/APCI-MS and MALDI-MS for characterising triacylglycerols in insects: species-specific composition of lipids in the fat bodies of bumblebee males.
TLDR
The compositions of triacylglycerols in the fat bodies of males in 11 bumblebee species were found to be species-specific and two mass spectrometric methods were used and compared in terms of the relevance of the data for further biostatistical evaluation.
