A series of experiments, using GLC, RP-HPLC, and GC-MS techniques, were performed to examine the metabolic fate and absorption of different dietary sterols in the grasshopper Schistocerca americana. In the first experiment, grasshoppers were reared on diets containing different sterols presented singly. Cholesterol was the dominant tissue sterol recovered from cholesterol and "soybean sitosterol" fed grasshoppers but among the grasshoppers fed diets with stigmasterol and spinach sterols (both… CONTINUE READING
