Fatty acid and amino acid composition of teratocytes from Lygus hesperus (Miridae: Hemiptera) parasitized by two species of parasites, Leiophron uniformis (Braconidae: Hymenoptera) and Peristenus stygicus (Braconidae: Hymenoptera)



Fatty acid and amino acid composition of teratocytes from Lygus hesperus (Miridae: Hemiptera) parasitized by two species of parasites, Leiophron uniformis (Braconidae: Hymenoptera) and Peristenus stygicus (Braconidae: Hymenoptera)



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, B 79(3): 335-337



Teratocytes (dissociated trophamnion cells liberated from eggs of certain hymenopterous endoparasites into host haemolymph upon hatch) from Lygus hesperus parasitized by Peristenus stygicus or Leiophron uniformis were analysed and compared. Fatty acid profiles were similar in the 2 types of teratocytes except for myristic acid (C14:0), which was found in higher concentrations in P. stygicus, and linolenic acid (C18:3), which was found in higher concentrations in L. uniformis.
