Insect carboxylesterases (CBEs) have great importance in insect
biology and play a crucial role in the ever-increasing occurrence
of insecticide resistance. This resistance to insecticides (e.g.
organophosphates) leads to downstream effects on agriculture and
to human health (through reduced crop production and the spread
of insect-borne diseases). Structural and functional studies of
insect CBEs are vital for combating insecticide resistance,
