Proline synthesis in fat body of Leptinotarsa decemlineata

By E. Weeda, A.B. Koopmanschap, C.A.D. de Kort and A.M.Th. Beenakkers


Fat body isolated from the Colorado potato beetle is capable of synthesizing proline. Maximum rate of proline synthesis is achieved with alanine as substrate. A metabolic pathway in which stored lipid participates in proline synthesis is suggested. The close relationship between flight muscle and fat body metabolism is discussed
