 Title    Enzymatic Conversion and Degradation of Sex Pheromones in Antennae of the Male Silkworm Moth Antheraea polyphemus  
 Abstract    In living antennae of the male silkworm moth Antheraea polyphemus the pheromone com-pounds [6,7-3 H]-6,ll-hexadecadienyl acetate and [12,13-3 H]-10,12-hexadecadienol are enzymati-cally converted to their corresponding fatty alcohols, aldehydes, acids and long-chained fatty acid esters. In antennae of freshly hatched moths the 3 H-labeled pheromones are degraded at high rates to volatile polar metabolites. The half-life of the pheromone acetate is about 3 min. In dried antennae the pheromone acetate is merely hydrolyzed to the fatty alcohol.

 Title    Enzymatic Conversion of Sex Pheromones in Olfactory Hairs of the Male Silkworm Moth Antheraea polyphemus  
 Abstract    The sex pheromone compound [6,7-3H]-6,ll-hexadecadienyl acetate is enzymatically converted to its corresponding fatty alcohol, aldehyde and acid in living and homogenized olfactory hairs and in other parts of the antennae of the male silk-moth Antheraea polyphemus. The pheromone is metabolized in vitro mainly in the inner hydrophilic compartments, but scarcely in the outer hydrophobic cuticle of the olfactory hairs.
