- ... The corn earworm, Helicoverpa zea, utilizes (Z)-11-hexadecenal as the major sex pheromone component. The saturated fatty acid derivative hexadecanal is also found in the pheromone gland and recently a large amount (0.5–1.5 μg) was found in male tarsi with lower amounts (0.05–0.5 μg) in female tarsi. In this study, we compared the transcriptome between female pheromone glands (including the oviposi ...
