Abstract
The apparent ability of 10-hydroxydecenoic acid (10 HDA) to lower the dietary sterol requirement of honeybee larvae was studied in larvae reared in the laboratory on diets based on royal jelly containing a deficient or an adequate level of sterol. The total prepupal body content of sterol was not affected by the presence of 10 HDA in the diet; however, blood radioactivity from dietary 14C cholesterol was 57-91% higher if 10 HDA was present.
