Biochemical investigations were undertaken to study the glutamate (L-glu) and aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in the central nervous system (CNS) of the American cockroach, Periplaneta americana. The aim was to provide a simple, quick and cost effective method of screening new chemical entities as potential insecticides acting on these systems, and to provide structure activity information once a series had been suggested as active in these systems.
