Frontalin: De novo biosynthesis of an aggregation pheromone component by Dendroctonus spp. bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae).
The pheromone component, frontalin (1,5-dimethyl-6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane) is thought to be formed in Dendroctonus spp. bark beetles through the cyclization of oxygenated 6-methyl-6-hepten-2-oneExpand
