Trehalose and trehalose metabolism are crucial for insect development. We measured the content of polyhydric compounds in the hemolymph of diapause- and nondiapause-destined individuals of Helicoverpa armigera. We found that the trehalose content is much higher in diapause-destined individuals than that in nondiapause individuals. The activity of trehalose-6-phosphate synthase (TPS) during H. armigera larval-pupal development is significantly higher in diapause-type individuals and is closely… CONTINUE READING
