Role of the Lipoxygenase/lyase Pathway of Host-food Plants in the Host Searching Behavior of Two Parasitoid Species, Cotesia glomerata and Cotesia plutellae


To elucidate the role of the plant lipoxygenase (LOX)/lyase pathway for host search behavior of two parasitic wasps attacking herbivorous larvae, an Arabidopsis mutant (all84) was isolated with a mutation somewhere in the LOX/lyase pathway. Detached leaves of the mutant were shown to release less (Z)-3-hexenal, a first green leaf volatile (GLV) product of… (More)
