Identification and synthesis of a kairomone mediating host location by two parasitoid species of the cassava mealybug Phenacoccus herreni
Journal of Chemical Ecology 27 (11), 2203-2217
Abstract: Two encyrtid species, Acerophagus coccois and Aenasius vexans, parasitoids of the cassava mealybug Phenacoccus herreni use a contact kairomone from the body surface of their host as a host-location stimulant. The kairomone was synthesized and identified as O-caffeoylserine based on a combination of chromatographic methods. The synthetic compound was determined to be active.
