  • Abstract During the 8th larval instar of Gryllus bimaculatus the metabolites of exogenous tritiumlabelled α-ecdysone were isolated from animals and from excrement, qualified by TLC and quantified in the scintillation counter. Besides β-ecdysone, there were 3 other compounds more polar than α-ecdysone (compounds I, II, and III), in addition to two less polar ones: compounds IV and V. The pattern of hormone changes characteristically during the period of development investigated. Thus on the 3rd… CONTINUE READING
