Biosynthesis of pheromones from Carpophilus davidsoni Dobson and C. mutilatus Erichson was investigated by feeding the beetles diets containing isotopically substituted (13C and deuterium) fatty acids and then analyzing the resulting labeled pheromone components. (2E,4E,6E,8E)-7-Ethyl-3,5-dimethyl-2,4,6,8-undecate traene, (2E,4E,6E,8E)-3,5,7-trimethyl-2,4,6,8-undecatetraen e and (2E,4E,6E)-5-ethyl-3-methyl-2,4,6-nonatriene from C. davidsoni and (3E,5E,7E)-5-ethyl-7-methyl-3,5,7-undecatriene… CONTINUE READING
