About this book

This volume of Advances in Insect Physiology contains comprehensive interdisciplinary reviews on basic and practical aspects relevant to major target receptors for crucial physiological functions and mechanisms in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, particularly insects. Chapters emphasize advanced genomic, molecular biology, chemical, and proteomic research on the receptors and their corresponding agonist and antagonist ligands. The book encompasses target systems such as sodium channels, octopamine/tyramine receptors, ABC transporters, acetylcholinesterase as a target enzyme, juvenile hormone receptors, and receptors targeted by neuropeptides.

Contents

Chapter One: ABC Transporters and Their Role in Protecting Insects from Pesticides and Their Metabolites
Chapter Two: Molecular Signalling, Pharmacology, and Physiology of Octopamine and Tyramine Receptors as Potential Insect Pest Control Targets
Chapter Three: Receptors for Neuronal or Endocrine Signalling Molecules as Potential Targets for the Control of Insect Pests
Chapter Four: The Juvenile Hormone Receptor and Molecular Mechanisms of Juvenile Hormone Action
Chapter Five: Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels as Insecticide Targets
Chapter Six: Insect Acetylcholinesterase as a Target for Effective and Environmentally Safe Insecticides
