Bisepoxy Juvenile Hormone III

Product Number: S-0157



Bisepoxy Juvenile Hormone III (mixture of diastereomers) is a sesquiterpenoid biosynthesized via the mevalonate pathway in the ring-glands of higher dipterans.

Juvenile Hormones are sesquiterpenoids found in insects that regulates important physiological processes such as reproduction and metamorphosis. Bisepoxy juvenile hormone III (JHB3) is biosynthesized via the mevalonate pathway in the ring-glands of higher dipterans (flies).
