Different growth patterns of two adjacent glomeruli responsible for sex-pheromone processing during postembryonic development of the cockroach Periplaneta americana.


In many insect species, sex pheromone is processed by specific, enlarged glomeruli in the antennal lobes of males. In the male American cockroach, two closely located glomeruli (A and B) are responsible for processing the major pheromone components (periplanone-A and -B, respectively), and these collectively form the macroglomerular complex.
