The action of juvenile hormone (JH) in controlling insect metamorphosis has been difficult to investigate at the molecular level. This is due to the close interactions with ecdysone as well as the lack of identified JH-controlled proteins or other specific cell products related to the morphogenetic actions of the hormone. Although a theoretical model of JH action at the gene level has been constructed (Williams and Kafatos, 1972), and various other suggestions regarding the mode of action have been put forth (see Wyatt, 1972), these have, as yet, little basis in solid biochemical knowledge.
