“I joined the crystallographer W. Hoppe's laboratory for my diploma work on crystallographic studies of the insect metamorphosis hormone ecdysone.”
“One might think that this would be determined by a hormone that is secreted at the proper time, neutralizing ecdysone, ending the molts, and initiating metamorphosis.”
“This gland apparently produces a hormone named ecdysone (ek'dih-sohn), which is stored in a small organ near the heart.”
