Lipid Metabolism during Development in Insects
Lipids are very suitable energy sources in insects for processes so important as flight, pupation, diapause, etc. On the other hand, very fundamental biochemical processes have to be present behind the great morphological changes that occur during insect metamorphosis. As development is accompanied by a greater structural complexity, one can expect membrane systems to undergo extensive structural changes which may be subsidiary to alterations in their phospholipid metabolism to serve the newly acquired functions.
