A pheromonotropic peptide was isolated from brain-suboesophageal ganglion complexes of the adult female gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar, using a 5-step HPLC purification protocol and an in vivo bioassay in Helicoverpa zea. The intact peptide was sequenced by automated Edman degradation. The L. dispar pheromone biosynthesis activating neuropeptide (Lyd-PBAN) is a C-terminally amidated 33-amino acid peptide with a molecular weight of 3881. The peptide was synthesized using Fmoc procedures. Lyd-PBAN… CONTINUE READING
