In vitro maintenance of the sex pheromone gland of the female Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella (Hubner)



In vitro maintenance of the sex pheromone gland of the female Indian meal moth Plodia interpunctella (Hubner)



Journal of Chemical Ecology 55: 653-662



In laboratory studies in the USA, the sex pheromone glands of females of Plodia interpunctella (Hb.) were isolated from surface-sterilised donors of different ages, freed of most of the attached gut, oviduct, and other tissues, rinsed in sterile medium, and cultured in 1 ml of culture medium. The sex pheromone gland cells that were cultured for 10 days in either chemically defined Grace's medium or modified Grace's medium appeared normal in histological examinations.
