Abstract:

Conclusions 1 The JH-active compound extracted from abdomina of adult male Cecropia is identical with the juvenile hormone produced by corpora allata. 2 The JHactive compound which we have isolated is the juvenile hormone. 3 Juvenile hormone is not farnesol, farnesal, farnesyl methyl ether, or any other compound previously tested for JH activity.
