Cytochrome P450 genes induced by bispyribac-sodium treatment in a multiple-herbicide-resistant biotype of Echinochloa phyllopogon.
Incremental herbicide metabolism by cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (P450s) has been proposed as the basis for resistance to bispyribac-sodium (bispyribac) in a multiple-herbicide-resistant biotype of Echinochloa phyllopogon. Upon exposure to bispyribac, strong induction of bispyribac-metabolising P4...
Suppression of Botrytis cinerea on necrotic grapevine tissues by early-season applications of natural products and biological control agents...
Necrotic tissues within grape (Vitis vinifera) bunches represent an important source of Botrytis cinerea inoculum for Botrytis bunch rot (BBR) at harvest in vineyards. This research quantified the incidence of B. cinerea on necrotic floral and fruit tissues and the efficacy of biologically based tre...
Sub-lethal effects of four neonicotinoid seed treatments on the demography and feeding behaviour of the wheat aphid Sitobion avenae.
These results benefit our understanding on the subtle effects of the four tested neonicotinoids when applied as seed treatments. © 2013 Society of Chemical Industry....
A novel Cph-like gene involved in histogenesis and maintenance of midgut in Bombyx mori.
Male-biased silkworm larva resistance is useful for sericulture and lepidopteran pest control. According to previous research, the mechanism underlying this resistance might be related to midgut-specific proteins. A midgut-specific and novel hypothetical cuticular protein-like (Cph-like) gene was cl...
Insecticidal effect of chlorantraniliprole against major stored-product insect pests in different grain commodities under laboratory tests.
Chlorantraniliprole belongs to the chemical group of anthranilic diamides. It has selectivity to beneficial arthropods and low mammalian toxicity. Laboratory bioassays were conducted to assess chlorantraniliprole as a potential grain protectant against Ephestia kuehniella Zeller larvae, Liposcelis b...
A functional study of two dsRNA binding protein genes in Laodelphax striatellus.
We cloned two dsRNA binding proteins from Laodelphax striatellus and investigated their functions. In this study, the genes homologous to the dsRNA binding proteins TRBP and STAU in L. striatellus were first cloned and designated as LsTRBP and LsSTAU. Using the chitinase gene Chi, which has been con...
A process to provide harmonised criteria for the selection of indicators for pesticide risk reduction within the framework of the sustainabl...
In October 2009, the Council of the European Union adopted the Directive on Sustainable Use of Pesticides (EU 128/2009/EC). This directive establishes a framework to achieve the sustainable use of pesticides by reducing the risk and impacts of pesticide use on both human health and the environment,...

Triazole fungicides and the selection of resistance to medical triazoles in the opportunistic mould Aspergillus fumigatus.
Azole resistance is an emerging problem in the opportunistic mould Aspergillus fumigatus. The triazoles are the most important agents for the management of Aspergillus diseases in humans. Selection for acquired resistance may occur in the hospital setting through exposure to high doses of azoles dur...
The story of a new insecticidal chemistry class: the diamides.
This paper describes the story of the invention of the diamides, a novel chemical class of insecticides. It starts with the pioneering work by Nihon Nohyaku researchers, who developed a herbicide lead with weak insecticidal activity to flubendiamide, a highly potent lepidoptericide. The journey cont...
