The photochemistry of some analogs of insect growth regulators (IGRs) was studied. Methyl geranate, TY, was synthesized and the mechanisms of its photochemical reaction pathways were studied by a variety of techniques. Direct irradiation of 71 in ether leads to the formation of five new products: 98, the product of a [1,3] sigmatropic shift; 72, a bicyclo[2.1.1]hexane derivative; 73, a cylclopentane derivative; 100, the product of in-chain deconjugation to the Z isomer; and 97, the product of isomerization about the C-2 bond. Irradiation in the presence of propiophenone as a triplet sensitizer lead to the formation of only 72, 73 and 97, identifying them as arising from the triplet excited state. Irradiation of 71 in ether with varying amounts of base lead to the formation of (in addition to products already mentioned) 99 and 100, the other two possible deconjugation products. Examination of Scheme 29 leads to the derivation of the kinetic rate expressions in Scheme 31, and plotting the ratios ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Uptake of juvenile hormone esterase by pericardial cells of Manduca sexta. AU - Ichinose, Reiji. AU - Nakamura, Atsushi. AU - Yamato, Takashi. AU - Booth, Tim F.. AU - Maeda, Susumu. AU - Hammock, Bruce D.. PY - 1992. Y1 - 1992. N2 - Immunohistochemical studies were conducted to determine tissue(s) which might be involved in the uptake of juvenile hormone esterase (JHE) from larval hemolymph. Purified JHE expressed by a recombinant baculovirus carrying the JHE gene from Heliothis virescens was injected into the hemolymph of second stadium larvae of Manduca sexta. Immunoreactive material detected with specific antibodies against the natural JHE purified by affinity chromatography from the hemolymph of H. virescens was localized only in the dorsal regions of whole larval mounts. Further immunohistochemical studies of whole and dissected larvae at the light and electron microscopic level showed the specific localization of JHE in pericardial cells. Western blot analysis confirmed ...
Juvenile hormones (JHs) are a group of acyclic sesquiterpenoids that regulate many aspects of insect physiology. JHs regulate development, reproduction, diapause, and polyphenisms. In insects, JH (formerly called neotenin) refers to a group of hormones, which ensure growth of the larva, while preventing metamorphosis. Because of their rigid exoskeleton, insects grow in their development by successively shedding their exoskeleton (a process known as molting). Juvenile hormones are secreted by a pair of endocrine glands behind the brain called the corpora allata. JHs are also important for the production of eggs in female insects. JH was discovered in 1965 and the first molecular structure of a final six was solved in 1967. Most insect species contain only juvenile growth hormone (JH) III. To date JH 0, JH I, and JH II have been identified only in the Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths). The form JHB3 (JH III bisepoxide) appears to be the most important JH in the Diptera, or flies. Certain species ...
Female A. domesticus exhibit variability in their phonotactic behavior. Some females respond to syllable periods (SPs) typical of the males calling song (CS; 50-70 ms), others respond additionally to CSs with shorter or longer SPs, outside the range of males calls. Other females are not selective to SP and respond to the full range of SPs. Nanoinjection of Juvenile Hormone III (JHIII) into the prothoracic ganglion increases phonotactic selectivity. Nanoinjection of chelerythrine chloride (a protein kinase C inhibitor) reduces the effect of JHIII. The L3 prothoracic interneuron responds selectively to the SP of the males CS and is proposed to be involved in controlling SP-selective phonotaxis. Prothoracic nanoinjection of JHIII increases selective responses of L3 which parallels its effects on phonotaxis. This increase in selectivity seems to result from a decrease in decrement, predominantly at the shorter and longer SPs. Such effects increase selectivity in response to the SPs that are most
Juvenile hormone (JH) is one of the principal hormones that regulate insect development and reproduction. Accumulating evidence suggests that Methoprene-tolerant (Met) protein is a nuclear receptor of JH. Work by others has shown that Met is capable of binding JH at physiological concentration. An RNAi knockdown of Met causes down-regulated expression of JH-responsive genes and a phenotype similar to that observed in JH-deficient insects, suggesting that Met is required for mediating physiological and molecular responses to JH. The work in this report aims to understand the mechanisms underlying gene regulation by JH via Met. Met is a bHLH-PAS (basic-helix-loop-helix Per-ARNT-Sim) family protein. Many proteins in this family function as heterodimers formed with other proteins of this family. In a yeast two-hybrid screening, we discovered that another bHLH-PAS family protein, FISC, interacts with Met in the presence of JH. FISC is also required for JH functions as an RNAi knockdown of FISC ...
Pyriproxyfen is a growth inhibitor of mosquito larvae, which alters the development process from larva to pupa to adult, thus generating malformations in developing mosquitoes and killing or disabling them. It acts as an insect juvenile hormone or juvenoid, and has the effect of inhibiting the development of adult insect characteristics (for example, wings and mature external genitalia) and reproductive development. It is an endocrine disruptor and is teratogenic (causes birth defects).. Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added pyriproxyfen to drinking water is not a coincidence, even though the Ministry of Health places a direct blame on Zika virus for this damage, while trying to ignore its responsibility and ruling out the hypothesis of direct and cumulative chemical damage caused by years of endocrine and immunological disruption of the affected population," according to the report by Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed ...

Correlations among physiological traits, or between traits and hormone titres, can be a valuable initial approach for inferring functional or mechanistic relationships (Bennett 1987; Zera et al. 2007). Given a priori knowledge of the different components and interrelatedness of endocrine-regulated networks, is it a reasonable expectation to find positive correlations between hormone titres and phenotypic variation in hormone-dependent traits? For example, for the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, is there a systematic relationship between the marked (10-fold) inter-individual variation in plasma oestrogen levels and variation in either the hormonal stimulus for E2 release (e.g. plasma LH levels) or variation in oestrogen-dependent traits such as yolk precursors levels, yolk or egg size? If so, does this explain inter-individual variation in hormone titres? In contrast, if we find no such correlations does this suggest that inter-individual variation in hormone titres is real but ...

We investigated the role of head factors and allatostatins (ASs) on the regulation of juvenile hormone (JH) synthesis in female adult mosquito. The biosynthetic activity of the Aedes aegypti corpora allata (CA) in vitro was inhibited by factors present in the head. Disconnecting the CA from the brain resulted in a significant increase in the rate of JH biosynthesis. Inhibition was not dependent on intact nervous connections; co-incubation of CA with brains or brain extracts resulted in a significant decrease of JH biosynthesis. This inhibitory effect of brain extracts was reversible and heat stable; extracts lost the inhibitory activity after proteinase K digestion suggesting a peptidic structure. In a first attempt to elucidate the nature of this inhibitory factor, we tested in our CA in vitro system the effect of members of two families of allatostatins already described in mosquitoes. Anopheles gambiae PISCF-allatostatin (homolog to Manduca PISCF-allatostatin) significantly inhibited JH synthesis,
Use of Juvenile Hormone Analogues (JHA) in sericulture practices has been shown to boost good cocoon yield; their effect has been determined to be dose-dependent. We studied the impact of low doses of JHA compounds such as methoprene and fenoxycarb on selected key enzymatic activities of the silkworm Bombyx mori. Methoprene and fenoxycarb at doses of 1.0 μg and 3.0fg/larvae/48 hours showed enhancement of the 5th instar B. mori larval muscle and silkgland protease, aspartate aminotransaminase (AAT) and alanine aminotransaminase (ALAT), adenosine triphosphate synthase (ATPase) and cytochrome-c-oxidase (CCO) activity levels, indicating an upsurge in the overall oxidative metabolism of the B.mori larval tissues.
JH is an important regulator of insect development, physiology and behavior. While in many insect species JH functions in the adult as a gonadotropin, in some highly eusocial insects its role has shifted to regulate social behavior (Barth et al., 1975; Hartfelder and Engels, 1998; Bloch et al., 2000b; Hartfelder, 2000; Giray et al., 2005; Amsalem et al., 2014). In bumble bees, which are considered to be primitively eusocial (Michener, 1974), JH seemed to retain its role in reproduction but was also suggested to mediate aggression and dominance behavior (Roseler, 1977; Van Doorn, 1986; Bloch et al., 2000b). However, little is known about the association between JH, aggression and ovary activation and the effect of rank within the social structure on these parameters. The present study investigated the effect of the JH inhibitor precocene-I on JH titer and consequently on reproduction, aggression and pheromone production in queenless workers of the bumble bee B. terrestris.. Our results clearly ...
The roles of juvenile hormone III (JH III) on phase changes and pheromone production were examined in laboratory-reared gregarious desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria (Forskal). The hormone was applied to 5th instar nymphs and newly emerged adult locusts. Generally, the 5th instar nymphs exhibited a higher sensitivity to hormone treatments than the adults. Hormone applications inhibited pheromone production (as measured by the amounts of phenylacetonitrile released). In addition, JH III had a significant effect on the external colouration and absorbance ratios of the haemolymph pigments. It is concluded that the effects of exogenous JH III on gregarious locusts represent a shift towards the solitarious phase ...
Abstract The influence of methyl farnesoate (MF) in the regulation of molt and gonad development in the crab Oziotelphusa senex senex was investigated. Injection of methyl farnesoate into female and male crabs significantly (P | 0.0001) increased mean oocyte diameter (236.37%) and testicular follicle diameter (25.72%) as well as mean gonad indices (females 1304.35%; males 38.00%) and also accelerated the molting (females 80%; males 100%). These results provide strong evidence that methyl farnesoate is involved in the control of both molting and reproduction in crabs.

Both E75A and E75B mRNAs were found in the abdominal epidermis during both the larval and the pupal molts, with E75A appearing before E75B, coincident with the rise of ecdysteroid. Exposure of either fourth or fifth instar epidermis to 20E in vitro caused the rapid, transient induction of E75A RNA with a peak at 6 and 3 h, respectively, followed by maintenance at low levels until 24 h.

Juvabione, historically known as the paper factor, is the methyl ester of todomatuic acid, both of which are sesquiterpenes (C15) found in the wood of true firs of the genus Abies. They occur naturally as part of a mixture of sesquiterpenes based upon the bisabolane scaffold. Sesquiterpenes of this family are known as insect juvenile hormone analogues (IJHA) because of their ability to mimic juvenile activity in order to stifle insect reproduction and growth. These compounds play important roles in conifers as the second line of defense against insect induced trauma and fungal pathogens. In 1965, Karel Sláma and Carroll Williams made a surprising discovery: paper towels made from the wood of the balsam fir (Abies balsamea, Fig. 1) released vapors that elicited a potent effect on hemipteran bugs of the Pyrrhocoridae family. They named this substance "the paper factor." It was thought to contain a mixture of JH-mimicking sesquiterpenes, but it wasnt until 1966 that (+)-juvabione was first ...
Proper spatial and temporal specification of cells during development is crucial for the generation of cellular diversity in the nervous system of complex organisms. We are interested in the mechanisms underlying the establishment of cellular polarity and the generation of neuronal cell lineages during neurulation in Danio rerio. We were able to show that neurulation in zebrafish embryos is characterised by oriented cell divisions and the progressive establishment of cellular polarity. Mitoses in the neural plate and neural tube are planar, but in the neural keel/rod stage the mitotic spindle rotates by 90°, causing cell divisions to occur perpendicular to the plane of the neuroepithelium. However, the mechanisms and molecules that establish cellular polarity and cause the stereotypic orientation of the mitotic spindle during neurulation are still largely unknown. In order to address this topic, we are currently analyzing the putative cell fate determinant Numb and the role of the ...
The morphological difference between male and female stag beetles is widely known. Male stag beetles have a pair of fully developed mandibles that are commonly called "hasami," while females do not exhibit such mandible growth. What is the mechanism that causes such significant difference within the same species? In order to understand this mechanism, a developmental study was carried out on Cyclommatus metallifer, focusing on sex-determination genes and juvenile hormone*2 signaling pathways.. Results indicate that the dsx gene, a sex-determining gene for insects, regulates sexual dimorphism in stag beetles. It is also suggested that a large difference in sexual dimorphism of mandible growth is due to the dsx gene that regulates juvenile hormone responsiveness in different directions depending on whether the individual is male or female. These results are a major milestone, and mark the discovery of the "sexual differentiation regulatory mechanism by the dsx gene via hormone responsiveness," ...

Author Summary Communication between internal energetic state and taste perception helps animals control food uptake and maintain normal life functions. Honey bees provide an animal model for studies of food-related behavior, such as the role of taste sensitivity in choice-making between carbohydrate- and protein-rich foods (nectar versus pollen for honey bees). A young bees taste sensitivity to sugar predicts when she begins foraging later in life and influences her choice of foods. Vitellogenin (Vg), a protein produced in the bees fat cells, and juvenile hormone (JH) influence honey bee taste perception and food-related behavior. Vg and JH are connected by a feedback loop, and we perturbed this Vg-JH circuit using a double gene knockdown approach. In response, bees became more sensitive to sugar, had higher sugar levels in the blood, and died faster during starvation, while lipid levels remained constant. We identified that insulin like peptide 1 (ilp1), the adipokinetic hormone receptor (AKHR), and

The global Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) Market is expected to reach USD 1.23 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Globally increasing consumption of environment friendly pesticides has been a major factor driving market growth. In addition, growing adoption of organic farming techniques has led to the increased utilization of insect growth regulators.. IGRs are considered as a safer alternative to insecticides. These are non-toxic in nature and degrade rapidly. They also do not contaminate the groundwater and soil. The application of IGRs does not lead to harmful effects on advantageous soil microbes, animals, and humans. Numerous advantages of IGRs, such as lesser harmful impact on the environment and enhanced compatibility with pest management practices, make them attractive alternatives to several insecticides.. Juvenile hormone analogs and mimics were the fastest growing product category in 2016 and is expected to maintain a substantial growth rate over ...
