Access from EThOS:
In order to control insect populations that are resistant to the currently used insecticides, new compounds with completely different modes of action need to be developed. One such novel insecticide is Pyridalyl; it shows high specificity towards lepidopteran pests, no phytotoxicity and it is capable of controlling lepidopteran populations that are resistant to the currently used insecticides. The main aim of this project was to elucidate the mode of action of Pyridalyl using biochemical and proteomic techniques.
