Nondiapausing larvae of Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner) incorporated 3 times as much of the DNA precursor, 2-14C thymidine as diapausing larvae in 18 hours, twice as much of the RNA precursor, 2-14C uridine, into trichloroacetic acid-insoluble material in I hour, and 60-70% as much 1-14C leucine into protein in 1 hour. Eighteen hours after cycloheximide was administered to diapausing larvae, the incorporation of labeled leucine (monitored over a 1-hour period) decreased 80-90%; such an effect was not observed in nondiapausing larvae.
