Neuroendocrine roles of the brain in the regulation of 20-hydroxyecdysone responsiveness in two types of diapause pupae of the cabbage armyworm, Mamestra brassicae.


The cabbage armyworm, Mamestra brassicae, has winter-and aestival- diapause pupae (WD- and AD-pupae) showing differences in the strength of diapause. We tried to quantify diapause-strength by measuring the doses of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20-E) required to induce adult development in WD-, AD- and decerebrated non-diapause pupae (ND-pupae). The role of the brain… (More)
