The use of radioimmune assays to determine ecdysteroid titres during insect development has become widespread in recent years. In this review I consider the application of these assays to studies on the development of Drosophila melanogaster. In all, 8 studies have been undertaken with somewhat conflicting results. I discuss the underlying problems in these studies and relate them to studies in Calliphora and Manduca. I also consider evidence from in vitro studies of Drosophila tissues… CONTINUE READING
