Abstract The accumulation of inositol in hibernating adults of a phytophagous ladybeetle, Epilachna vigintioctomaculata , was demonstrated by a gas-chromatography and mass-spectrometry system. Inositol began to increase at the beginning of hibernation in early October and attained its maximum level of about 30 mg/g of body weight in January. It was also demonstrated that the source of inositol accumulated during hibernation is stored glycogen, and that interconversion between inositol and… Expand
