Structure, Function and Evolution of Insect Carboxylesterases

Hopkins, Davis


Insect carboxylesterases (CBEs) have proven to be a highly adaptable family of enzymes that has undergone extensive functional diversification and sequence divergence over a short span of evolutionary time. This makes these enzymes ideal examples to explore the evolutionary processes that lead to the unique functions of enzymes. In this thesis I present two such examples. The first example is addressed in chapters 2 and 3: the evolution of insecticide resistance CBEs. These enzymes are...[Show more]
