Esterases and helicoverpa armigera
Pesticide use has been carefully regulated by the Australian cotton industry in an attempt to control resistance in the cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera) but the species has still shown a propensity to develop resistance. This thesis examines the contribution of metabolic enzymes to resistance, with a focus on the carboxylcholinesterases (CCEs, or esterases). CCEs have been implicated in metabolic resistance to several insecticide classes (including SPs and OPs) in a range of species. The...[Show more]
