The physiological changes which occur during insect moulting are brought about by the steroid hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone (Riddiford & Truman, 1978). The prohormone ecdysone is secreted by the bilaterally paired prothoracic glands (PGs) in response to prothoracicotropic hormone (PTTH) released from the brain (Bollenbacher, Agui, Granger & Gilbert, 1979). Recently, Smith, Gilbert & Bollenbacher (1985) demonstrated that Ca is required for PTTH-stimulated ecdysone synthesis and, consequently… CONTINUE READING
