Exogenous makisterone A accelerates early embryonic development in the milkweed bugOncopeltus fasciatus

  • A. Dorn
  • K. -J. Buhlmann


Reproducing females ofOncopeltus fasciatus which were treated with exogenous makisterone A and 20-hydroxyecdysone laid eggs with considerably elevated ecdysteroid contents. The early embryonic development was markedly accelerated when the mother was treated with makisterone A, whereas 20-hydroxyecdysone had no influence.
