Juvenile hormones (JH) and ecdysteroids are the two hormone classes primarily implicated in regulating insect development. Precisely timed fluctuations in the titer of JH are required for normal larval development and metamorphosis. JH synthesis is the main regulator of JH titer, in addition to catabolic processes caused by specific esterases, or by the presence of JH-binding molecules [1]. JH is synthesized and released by the corpora allata (CA), a pair of endocrine glands connected with the… CONTINUE READING
