 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.
