A juvenile hormone binding protein (JHBP) has been isolated from the whole body homogenate of Galleria rnellonella final instar larvae by gel filtration. The isolated protein is homogenous as judged by column chromatography and gel electrophoresis in the presence and absence of denaturing agent. The JHBP has a relative molecular weight of 32 k by denaturing gel electrophresis and 28 k by gel filtration. The protein exhibits a dissociation constant of 3.9 x M for JH 111.
