Cholesterol alleviates the negative effects of tomatine on insects (Campbell and Duffey 1981, Bloem et al.
The three tomato allelochemicals were absent or at their maximal concentrations found in tomato leaves: tomatine (0 or 5 [micro]mol/g fresh mass (fm) of diet), chlorogenic acid (0 or 20 [micro]mol/g fm), and rutin (0 or 20 [micro]mol/g fm).
We conducted this experiment for each of the three tomato allelochemicals, using the 5-[micro]mol tomatine diet, 20-[micro]mol chlorogenic acid diet, and 20-[micro]mol rutin diet.
Tomatine concentration was not affected by thermal regime but did decline with incubation time.
There was an additive effect of tomatine to either chlorogenic acid or rutin, which slowed developmental rate further (P = 0.
There was a rutin by tomatine interaction (P [less than] 0.
sexta caterpillars was influenced by thermal regime and the interactions of thermal regime and tomatine (Table 2, [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4A, B OMITTED]).
sexta caterpillars was affected by thermal regime, the allelochemicals chlorogenic acid and tomatine, and the interactions of thermal regime and tomatine (Table 2, [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5A, B OMITTED]).
Tomatine had both pre- and post-ingestive effects (Table 2).
The negative effect of tomatine on developmental rate was greater at the warm regime than the cool regime (TEMP x T interaction, [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2C, D OMITTED]).
At the spring regime, chlorogenic acid, rutin, and tomatine each increased AD (P = 0.
Tomatine and rutin both depressed developmental rate, and rutin plus tomatine produced a negative, additive effect (P = 0.
