In Vitro Juvenile Hormone Biosynthesis in Adult Virgin and Mated Female Brown-banded Cockroaches,

Abstract

The irk vitro radiochemical assay for juvenile hormone biosynthesis by pairs of corpora allata has been employed in the adult female brown-banded cockroach, Supella longipalpa. [2-14C]acetate and the methyl moiety of L-[methyl-3H]methionine were incorporated into juvenile hormone in a 9: 1 ratio. The corpora allata of 9-day mated females release juvenile… (More)
