The changes in fatty acid compositions during nutritional interaction among almond Amygdalus communis Linnaeus (Rosales: Rosaceae) (host plant), lacebug Monosteria unicostata (Mulsant and Rey) (Heteroptera: Tingidae) and its predator Piocoris luridus Fieber (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae) were determined by gas chromatography and gas chromatography‐mass spectrometry analyses. The fatty acid profiles of phospholipids and triacylglycerols were substantially different. Unlike the general observations for… 
The Influence of Life-cycle on Phospholipid and Triacylglycerol Fatty Acid Profiles of Aelia rostrata Boheman (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
The proportion of unsaturation/saturation ratio was significantly increased in phospholipid and triacylglycerol, apparently because of increases in major monounsaturated oleic acid at the expense of saturated palmitic acid during diapause.
Seasonal changes in fatty acid composition of Eysarcoris inconspicuous (Herrich-Schaffer, 1844) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) adults
Findings indicate that E. inconspicuous can modify its fatty acid composition in response to changes in environmental conditions, and temperature seems to play an important role in seasonal variation of lipid metabolism of E.conspicuous.
Comparison of fatty acid contents and composition in major lipid classes of larvae and adults of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) from a steppe region
During mosquito metamorphosis transfer of essential eicosapentaenoic and arachidonic acids from the reserve in storage lipids of larvae to functional polar lipids in adults occurred, and it is hypothesize that these acids might be synthesized (or retroconverted) by the mosquitoes.
Growth and fatty acid metabolism of Aphis gossypii parasitized by the parasitic wasp Lysiphlebia japonica.
The weight and free fatty acid content of parasitized A. gossypii were increased compared to non-parasitized aphids and significantly increased weights were detected at 1, 2 and 3 instars after parasitization by L. japonica.
Fatty acid composition remains stable across trophic levels in a gall wasp community
It is shown that lipid levels remain stable or decline after feeding in all species, indicating that none of the wasps synthesize lipids, and the efficiency of host exploitation is high and fatty acids are consumed directly from the host without modification, leading to stable fatty acid compositions throughout the trophic cascade.
Fatty acid composition of the parasitic mite Varroa destructor and its host the worker prepupae of Apis mellifera
The results suggest specific mechanisms of FA uptake, accumulation and metabolism in the food chain of this parasitic association, beginning from the food processed by nurse bees for larval feeding, through host organisms (worker brood) to V. destructor mites.
Lipid fingerprinting of yellow mealworm Tenebrio molitor by untargeted liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry
The data showed the occurrence of multiple structurally diverse lipids in T. molitor, suggesting that mealworms are not only enriched with proteins but also have several functional lipids, which are highly beneficial to human and animal health.
Waterbugs (Heteroptera: Nepomorpha and Gerromorpha) as sources of essential n‐3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in Central Siberian ecoregions
Corixids thus appear to be a potentially important vector for transfer of the essential biochemical compounds from water to land, especially in steppe ecoregions with numerous ephemeral water bodies.
The Effects of Insect Extracts and Some Insect-Derived Compounds on the Settling Behavior of Liposcelis bostrychophila
Fatty acids and fatty acid methyl esters repelled settling of L. bostrychophila at 10 mM, with the exception of palmitic and stearic acids, indicating, among other things, a difference between the efficacy of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids.
Comparison of the volatile compounds of Dermestes maculatus and Dermestes ater pupae: application of headspace solid-phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC/MS)
The headspace solid phase microextraction gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC/MS) method was used for the determination of the volatile compounds of Dermestes maculatus and D. ater pupae, revealing differences between the insect species in their chemical composition.


Nutritional Interactions Revealed by Tissue Fatty Acid Profiles of an Obligate Myrmecophilous Predator, Microdon albicomatus, and Its Prey, Myrmica incompleta, (Diptera: Syrphidae) (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
The fatty acid compositions of larval Microdon albicomatus Novak, an obligate predator of the brood of the ant Myrmica incomplete Provancher, and the fatty acid composition of the pupae and workers
Fatty Acid Profiles of Main Lipid Classes in Adult Chrysomela vigintipunctata (Scopoli) (Coleopterai:Chrysomelidae)
The fatty acid composition of the willow leaf beetle Chrysomela vigintipunctata (Scopoli) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is presented and substantial amounts of unsaturated eicosanoic fatty acids known as important precursor of eicOSanoids in insects are detected.
Phospholipid and triacylglycerol fatty acid composition of major life stages of sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps (Heteroptera: Scutelleridae).
The Fatty Acid Composition of Parasitic Hymenoptera and its Possible Biological Significance
It may be that regulation of fatty acid composition is one of the many factors influencing host suitability, and that lack of this regulation by a parasitoid enables it to grow and develop on a wider variety of hosts which differ markedly in fatty acid compositions.
Total Lipid and Fatty Acid Composition of Apanteles galleriae and Its Parasitized Host
The degree of similarity between the fatty acid composition of parasitoid and host larvae was qualitatively similar to that of the host larvae, and Parasitism did not affect the total lipid and fatty acid levels of host larvae.
Changes in Composition of Phospholipid and Triacylglycerol Fatty Acids Prepared from Prediapausing and Diapausing Individuals of Dolycoris baccarum and Piezodorus lituratus (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
The unsaturation/saturation ratio was significantly increased in triacylglycerol and phospholipid, apparently because of increases in major monounsaturated 18:1 at the expense of major saturated 16:0 during diapause.
