[The sex-pheromone communication system of Heliothis/Helicoverpa species (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae)]
Acta Entomologica Sinica 46 (1), 96-107
Abstract: Female sex-pheromonal synthesis and male sex-pheromonal reception are two aspects of the sex-pheromonal communication system of Heliothis/Helicoverpa species. Coordinated biological activity at the molecular, cellular, and system levels are involved in the system. The interaction between PBAN and its receptor triggers signal transduction and activates sex-pheromone synthesizing enzymes resulting in the synthesis of sex pheromone, Some sex pheromone components that attract male moths had been identified by chemical and bioassays. The interaction between the pheromone-PBP complex and its receptor triggers signal transduction and induces nervous impulses which finally result in a sequence of sexual behaviors. Many different internal and external factors affect these processes.
