    Juvenile Hormone. Juvenile hormone (JH), produced by the corpora allata, regulates two important processes in insects. The first is development; as an insect develops, the degree juvenility of the next stage is determined by the amount of JH in the blood; the lower the JH, the more adult the next stage.   Juvenile hormones also play a prominent role in regulating reproductive maturation in adult insects and synthetic juvenile hormone mimics have been widely used as pesticides for mosquito controls. Virginia Tech researchers have discovered an important step in the activation of juvenile hormone target genes.

Siegel. Juvenile hormone (JH) is a developmental hormone of insects. It has become evident in recent years that JH is involved in the control of gene switching and that it exerts this control only during certain critical periods. Such JH-sensitive critical periods occur periodically during the life cycle of an insect. As a rule one or more critical periods exist during each pre-reproductive instar.

Because JH is specific to insects, it has been investigated for use as pest control. Although compounds that mimic the action of JH (JH analogues/agonists) are efficient, they have a limited scope of application.

Juvenile hormones (JHs) are a group of structurally related sesquiterpenes secreted by the insect corpora allata. They affect most insect life-cycle stages and physiological functions, including embryogenesis, larval and adult development, metamorphosis, reproduction, metabolism, diapause, polyethism, and migration.

Juvenoids such as methoprene, hy. Tetsuro Shinoda, in Handbook of Hormones, Abstract. Juvenile hormone (JH) was initially discovered in the s as a factor that is secreted from the corpus allatum (CA) and inhibits insect metamorphosis.

The chemical structure of the first JH was solved inand at least eight JHs have been identified to date. Book Description. Juvenile hormones (JHs) are a group of structurally related sesquiterpenes secreted by the insect corpora allata. They affect most insect life-cycle stages and physiological functions, including embryogenesis, larval and adult development, metamorphosis, reproduction, metabolism, diapause, polyethism, and migration.

About this book. Introduction. The juvenile hormones of insects are unique molecules in terms of their chemical nature (methyl esters of sesquiterpene epoxides) and action (both as modulators of morphogenesis during the larval life of insects and as a gonadotropic agent in many female adults).

Although a symposium dedicated to the chemistry. The juvenile hormones of insects are unique molecules in terms of their chemical nature (methyl esters of sesquiterpene epoxides) and action (both as modulators of morphogenesis during the larval life of insects and as a gonadotropic agent in many female adults).

They affect most insect life-cycle stages and physiological functions, including embryogenesis, larval and adult development, metamorphosis, reproduction, metabolism, diapause, polyethism, and by: Juvenile hormone, a hormone in insects, secreted by glands near the brain, that controls the retention of juvenile characters in larval stages.

The hormone affects the process of molting, the periodic shedding of the outer skeleton during development, and in adults it is necessary for normal egg.

The juvenile hormones of insects are unique molecules in terms of their chemical nature (methyl esters of sesquiterpene epoxides) and action (both as modulators of morphogenesis during the larval life of insects and as a gonadotropic agent in many female adults).

Although a symposium dedicated to. Juvenile Hormone (JH) Juvenile hormone is secreted by two tiny glands behind the brain, the corpora allata. As long as there is enough JH, ecdysone promotes larva-to-larva molts. With lower amounts of JH, ecdysone promotes pupation.

Complete absence of JH results in formation of the adult. Figure Corpora allata. Juvenile hormone has a unique terpenoid structure and is the methyl ester of epoxy farnesoic acid (see also Chapter ).This sesquiterpene exists in at least six different forms (Figure 15).JH III is the most common type and is present in most insects.

Five different JHs, JH 0, I, II, III, and 4-methyl-JH I, have been described in lepidopterans. Insect Juvenile Hormones: Chemistry and Action reviews the state of knowledge on juvenile hormones (JH) and analogs. The book emerged from the presentations and deliberations at the Symposium on the Chemistry and Action of Insect Juvenile Hormones, sponsored by the Division of Pesticide Chemistry of the American Chemical Society at the nd National Meeting of the Society in Book Edition: 1.
