The four major ecdysteroid (insect moulting hormone) conjugates present in the newly laid eggs of the desert locust, Schistocera gregaria, have been purified by reversed-phase and anion-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography. The steroid moieties were identified as ecdysone, 2-deoxyecdysone, 20-hydroxyecdysone and 2-deoxy-20-hydroxyecdysone. Phosphate analysis of acid-hydrolysed samples showed a steroid:phosphate ratio of approx. 1:1 for all four compounds. The intact conjugates were identified as ecdysone 22-phosphate, 2-deoxyecdysone 22-phosphate, 20-hydroxyecdysone 22-phosphate and 2-deoxy-20-hydroxyecdysone 22-phosphate by fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry and 1H, 13C and 31P n.m.r. The significance of ecdysteroid phosphates as a source of free hormone during embryogenesis is discussed.
