Fuscumol [(2S,5E)-6,10-dimethyl-5,9-undecadien-2-ol] was recently identified as the male-produced aggregation pheromone of the brown spruce longhorn beetle, Tetropium fuscum (F.), and the eastern larch borer, Tetropium cinnamopterum Kirby. Several other species use this homoterpenoid alcohol motif, its ketone, or its acetate as part of their pheromone system. Investigation of the biosynthesis of this compound in these two Tetropium species demonstrated that geranylacetone [(5E)-6,10-dimethyl-5… CONTINUE READING
