A laboratory study of insect growth regulators against the diamond-back moth, Plutella xylostella (Plutellidae) larvae


, : A laboratory study of insect growth regulators against the diamond-back moth, Plutella xylostella (Plutellidae) larvae. Malaysian Journal of Applied Biology 10(1): 57-62

In the laboratory at Minden on Penang Island, West Malaysia, the relative effectiveness of 5 juvenile-hormone analogues was tested by ingestion against mature larvae of Plutella xylostella (L.) on Chinese cabbage. Hydroprene (ZR-512), which was used as a standard of reference, was more effective than any of the other analogues, the next most effective being methoprene (ZR-515), followed by ZR-520 (ethyl (2E,4E)-11-methoxy-3,7,11-trimethyl-2,4-dodecadienoate).

The effect of toosendanin, a presynaptic blocker, on the inward rectifier potassium channel (KKir) of hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons of rats was studied by the single-channel patch-clamp technique. The results showed that toosendanin had an inh...

HOX genes play an important role in both normal lymphopoiesis and leukemogenesis. However, HOX expression patterns in leukemia cells compared to normal lymphoid progenitors have not been systematically studied in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)...
