Accordingly, the molecular basis for the detection of female-released pheromones by male moths has been studied in great detail. In contrast, little is known about how females can detect pheromone components released by themself or by conspecifics. In this study we assessed the antenna of female Heliothis virescens for elements of pheromone detection. Read More
