Lepidopteran sex pheromones.
This chapter deals with current methods for the identification of sex pheromones of Lepidoptera, and an actual application of the synthetic peromones for pest control is briefly introduced.
Pheromone gland-specific fatty-acyl reductase of the silkmoth, Bombyx mori
In experiments designed to characterize a pheromone-gland-specific FAR in the silkmoth, Bombyx mori, a cDNA clone encoding a protein homologous to a FAR from the desert shrub, Simmondsia chinensis, commonly known as jojoba is isolated.
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 are
(S)-2-Acetoxy-5-Undecanone, Female Sex Pheromone of the Raspberry Cane Midge, Resseliella theobaldi (Barnes)
2-Acetoxy-5-undecanone belongs to a new group of pheromone structures in the Cecidomyiidae, most others being mono- or diesters, and is proposed to be the major component of the raspberry cane midge.
Termination of sex pheromone production in mated females of the silkworm moth
Results indicated that the pheromone gland of the mated female maintained its ability to biosynthesize bombykol; however, it could not produce pherOMone due to a suppression of PBAN secretion from the SG.
Analyses of lepidopteran sex pheromones by mass spectrometry
Abstract Lepidoptera, including about 150,000 species in the world, comprise the second largest insect group, and sex pheromones have been identified from virgin female moths of more than 600
Amino acid sequence of pheromone-biosynthesis-activating neuropeptide (PBAN) of the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Two distinct pheromone-biosynthesis-activating neuropeptides (PBAN) are isolated as fully oxidized forms of Met residues from adult heads of the silkworm, Bombyx mori.
Hydrocarbons with a homoconjugated polyene system and their monoepoxy derivatives: Sex attractants of geometrid and noctuid moths distributed in Japan
It was concluded that hydrocarbons with a homoconjugated polyene system and the monoepoxy derivatives are important components of sex pheromones produced by Japanese lepidopterous insects, particularly the geometrid moths.
