Spiroacetal biosynthesis in fruit flies is complex: Distinguishable origins of the same major spiroacetal released by different Bactrocera spp

Schwartz, Brett; Booth, Yvonne K; Fletcher, Mary T; Kitching, William; De Voss, James Joseph


The major spiroacetal ((E,E)-1) of the pestiferous fruit flies, Bactrocera tryoni and Bactrocera cucumis, is biosynthesised from fatty acids by distinguishable pathways which utilise modified β-oxidation and C-H hydroxylation, generating a putative ketod
