Résumé

Durant l'apolyse de la nymphe deChoristoneura fumiferana la leucine radio-active, qui faisait corps avec la proteine, est mise en liberté. L'amino-acide libre s'y infiltre dans les composants séminaux tels que le spermatophore, la semence et autres. On recommande l'uridine radio-active pour détecter la semence seule.
