Structure and Function Studies of Insect Carboxylesterases

Fraser, Nicholas


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, finding new...[Show more]
