Example text

It is interesting, however, that the plant sterol sitosterol supports growth and development to high levels in three species (Table 2). g. Clark and Bloch, 1959a). An additional finding of interest for flies from these two families, especially considering the environments in which these insects feed, is that the utilization of fungal sterols seems to be poor or even non-existent. The Lepidoptera are another large order and the majority of the larvae are phytophagous, although a small number are predaceous and some are ectoparasitic.

That is, dealkylation is present in the primitive members of the order but is lost in the more derived members. For instance, Schaefer et al. (1965) demonstrated that the Virginia sawfly, Neodiprion pratti, could convert [3H]-sitosterol to [3H]-cholesterol. Likewise, cholesterol is the dominate tissue sterol found in most Symphyta even though the plants on which they feed contain primarily Á5-phytosterols (Table 3). , 1995b). Among INSECT STEROL NUTRITION AND PHYSIOLOGY 35 the predaceous Apocrita, which primarily includes the wasps and some ants, cholesterol is found in the tissues in large quantities, along with various other phytosterols that are normally associated with the dietary sterols of their prey items (Table 3).

Reported values indicate the range of specific sterols in the available foods. b Soybean, sunflower, and alfalfa seeds, with fresh green beans and water.
