Abstract:The digitonin- or tomatine-precipitable sterols present in NAIDM susceptible, DDT-resistant, malathion-resistant, parathion- resistant and carbaryl-resistant house flies, Musca domestica L., have been studied by gas chromatography. Cholesterol is not the major constituent of the isolated sterols. The relative amounts of the several sterols isolated vary with the strain of house fly.
