About this book

Presents the most recent advances in understanding the molecular mechanisms by which insects acquire resistance to natural, synthetic, and bioengineered insecticides.


Contents

Biomolecular Basis for Insecticide Resistance: Classification and Comparisons; Characterization of a Cytochrome P450 Responsible for Pyrethroid Resistance in the Housefly; Expression of the Cytochrome P450 Gene CYP6A1 in the Housefly, Musca domestica; Regulation of the Gene for Drosophila P450-B1, a P450 Isozyme Associated with Insecticide Resistance; Evolution of Glutathione S-Tranferases Associated with Insecticide Resistance in Drosophila; Mechanisms of kdr and super-kdr Resistance; Cloning of a Locus Associated with Cyclodiene Resistance in Drosophila: A Model System in a Model Insect; Molecular Analysis of Methoprene-Tolerant, a Gene in Drosophila Involved in Resistance to Juvenile Hormone Analog Insect Growth Regulators; Cytochrome P450 Monooxygenase Genes in Oligophagous Lepidoptera; Effects of the Endophyte-Associated Alkaloid Peramine on Southern Armyworm Microsomal Cytochrome P450; Resistance to Plant Allelochemicals in Heliothis virescens (Fabricius); Resistance in the Diamondback Moth to Pyrethroids and Benzoylphenylureas; Insecticide Resistance in the Tufted Apple Bud Moth, a Polyphagous Lepidopteran; Plant-Allelochemical-Adapted Glutathione Transferases in Lepidoptera; Mechanism of Insect Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis in Plodia interpunctella and Plutella xylostella; Tribolium as a Model Insect for Study of Resistance Mechanisms; Esterase Genes Conferring Insecticide Resistance in Aphids; Insecticide Resistance Mechanisms in the German Cockroach, Blattella germanica (L.); Insect Resistance to Benzoylphenylureas and Other Insect Growth Regulators: Mechanisms and Countermeasures; Mechanisms of Abamectin Resistance in the Colorado Potato Beetle; Detoxification of Mycotoxins by Insects; Interactions of N-Alkylamides with Voltage-Sensitive Sodium Channels; Phytochemical Antagonism of *g-Aminobutyric Acid Based Resistances in Diabrotica
