Abstract

A variety of water-miscible organic solvents caused profound activation of the homogeneous juvenile hormone esterase from Manduca sexta. Much lower activation was observed with other species. Methods for the handling of solutions of juvenile hormone are presented. The implications of solvent activation of juvenile hormone esterase activity are discussed, especially as they relate to analysis of the enzyme or titre determinations of juvenile hormone.
