Radioimmunoassay of insect juvenile hormones and of their diol derivatives.


We have developed a radioimmunoassay for insect juvenile hormones. The C18 hormone (JH I) was first converted into diol by opening the 10, 11-epoxy ring. Diol was then succinylated and coupled to human serum albumin to make it immunogenic. High titer antisera were obtained from immunized rabbits. Succinyl juvenile hormone was also coupled to the peptide… (More)
