INJECTION of homogenates of active prothoracic glands into fourth instar locust larvæ, a day after moulting, causes them to moult again prematurely. The instar is shortened by about 12–18 h (Fig. 1). The active agent appears to be an ecdysone (which we have named ecdysone-λ). Injection of those fractions of extracts of whole locusts that contain ecdysone-λ have a similar effect. The plant growth hormone gibberellic acid likewise shortens the instar when injected at the appropriate time into… Expand
