RH-5849 also inhibits ovariole development, causing prevention or cessation of oviposition in adult Lepidoptera and some species of Coleoptera and Dipteral It has been shown to be effective in in vitro experiments on imaginal disc cells of Plodia interpunctella.
In this case, the effects of vitellogenin on GRS shield the effects of ovariole number.
This was expected considering the hypothesized causal chain of ovariole number, vitellogenin synthesis, and GRS.
 colonies had mean worker ovariole counts of 4±2. 4 S.D. and 5±3. 1 per ovary while in this study they had an average of 6±3. 6.
Regression analysis showed that GRS explained more of the variance in vitellogenin expression (log transformed data) than did ovariole number (GRS: r
