Studies in the mode of action of royal jelly in honeybee development I Changes occurring in fresh royal jelly determined by Cartesian diver respirometry



Studies in the mode of action of royal jelly in honeybee development I Changes occurring in fresh royal jelly determined by Cartesian diver respirometry



Canadian Jour Zool: 204



Holter's Cartesian diver technique was used, with divers ca. 200 microliters volume, to study changes in royal jelly. Studies indicated that oxygen was consumed by fresh royal jelly, a phenomenon which was inhibited under an atmosphere of nitrogen. This activity diminished rapidly within a period of hours. Royal jelly held at room temperature for 6 to 8 hours showed no activity. No activity was found in fresh royal jelly which had been stored at - 18[degree]C. Cyanide did not inhibit this oxidation. The significance of the above results is discussed.
