Evidence for a Compound in Comstock-Kellog Glands Modulating Premating Behavior in Male Desert Locust, Schistocerca gregaria


The Comstock-Kellog glands in adult females of certain acridid species, including the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria have been implicated as a source of volatiles that play a role in mating behavior. A dichloromethane extract of the glands was analyzed for metabolites by gas chromatography, coupled gas chromatography–electroantennographic detection… (More)
