 Title    Metabolic Transformation of the Brassinosteroid 24-£/?i-castasterone by the Cockroach Periplaneta americana  
 Abstract    A fter feeding of 24-ep/-castasterone to the cockroach Periplaneta americana an organ-specific epimerization of the brassinosteroid to 2,24-d/ep/-castasterone could be detected in fem ale insects. The m etabolite being observed only in the ovaries and not in the testes of the insect was identified by GC/M S in comparison with a synthesized authentic sample. Con­ trary, 24-ep/-brassinolide is not m etabolized in the sexual organs of Periplaneta americana. This is the first evidence of a m etabolic transformation of a brassinosteroid in insects.
