Induction of spinning from jh treated eternal larvae of bombyx mori by ecdysteroid administration



Induction of spinning from jh treated eternal larvae of bombyx mori by ecdysteroid administration



Journal of Sericultural Science of Japan 57(4): 341-344



In Bombyx mori larvae, a high dose of JH treatment induces non-spinning eternal larvae in last larval instar. These larvae survived an additional 15 days without any signs of spinning or metamorphosis, and died. When these non-spinning larvae were fed with diets containing ecdysterone on the 10th to 13th day after 4th ecdysis, they began their wandering behavior and spinning after 1-2 days and made a large cocoon like the size of a hen's egg.
