Abnormal glycogen storage in larvae of Pieris brassicae L. (Lep., Pieridae) as a result of parasitism by Apanteles glomeratus L. (Hym., Braconidae)

, : Abnormal glycogen storage in larvae of Pieris brassicae L. (Lep., Pieridae) as a result of parasitism by Apanteles glomeratus L. (Hym., Braconidae). Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Entomologie 70(4): 370-374

In an investigation of carbohydrate metabolism in larvae of Pieris brassicae (L.) that were either unparasitised or parasitised by Apanteles glomeratus (L.), it was found that the parasitised larvae had a greater amount of glycogen stored in the fat-body, midgut epithelium and hypodermis. This difference is attributed to the effect of parasitism, possibly arising from a reduction of glycogen decomposition or a stimulation of glycogen synthesis.
