C(18):juvenile hormone is quite soluble in water, yielding a monomeric solution greater than 10(-5) M. In vivo injection or addition of aqueous juvenile hormone to the hemolymph in vitro shows the complexation of juvenile hormone to a protein, as demonstrated by gel permeation chromatography and disc-gel electrophoresis. The protein has an apparent molecular weight of 3.4 x 10(4) and is present in the hemolymph at a concentration in the micromolar range. The binding of the hormone to the… CONTINUE READING
