  • Abstract We have compared, on an individual basis, the volume of the corpora allata with their ability to synthesize and release juvenile hormone (JH) using glands taken at daily intervals throughout the period of sexual maturation and the first two ovarian cycles in Schistocerca gregaria . A standard in vitro radiochemical assay was used to measure the rates of both spontaneous JH biosynthesis from [methyl- 14 C]-methionine, and of JH biosynthesis stimulated by optimal concentrations of [C-2 3… CONTINUE READING
