In the preceding paper (1) we have investigated the metabolic basis for the sterol requirements of insects and have provided evidence to show that in the case of the beetle Dermestes vulpinus cholesterol biogenesis is multiply blocked. While the lack of sterol synthesis seems to be a metabolic defect common to all insects, the requirements for specific sterols vary widely among insect species. Cholesterol has been generally used as the dietary supplement and it supports growth and development… CONTINUE READING
