The pheromone of the queen honeybee. Evidence of a deactivating system for queen substance



The pheromone of the queen honeybee. Evidence of a deactivating system for queen substance



Naturwissenschaften 68(8): 429-430



Chromatographic techniques were used to detect queen substance (9-oxo-trans-2-decenoic acid) in various parts of the queen honeybee. It was present in large amounts in head extracts but only in traces in abdomen extracts, and it was absent from the ovaries and from blood. It is suggested that it may be specifically deactivated by tissues outside the head. (Chem.Abstr. 95 : 112077y (1981).) F.
