The chromatographic profile of ecdysteroids (Ecds) from the midgut gland (MG) of juvenile female lobsters, Homarus americanus, was examined using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and radioimmunoassay (RIA) over four stages of the molt cycle. Upon initial examination, highly polar Ecd conjugates appeared to be the principal metabolites found in… CONTINUE READING
