Acacia nilotica proteinase inhibitor (AnPI) was isolated by ammonium sulphate precipitation followed by chromatography on DEAE-Sephadex A-25 and resulted in a purification of 10.68-fold with a 19.5% yield. Electrophoretic analysis of purified AnPI protein resolved into a single band with molecular weight of approximately 18.6 + 1.00 kDa. AnPI had high(More)
The first step in ecdysteroidogenesis, i.e. the 7,8-dehydrogenation of dietary cholesterol (C) to 7-dehydrocholesterol (7dC), is blocked in Drosophila melanogaster homozygous woc (without children) third instar larval ring glands (source of ecdysone). Unlike ring glands from wild-type D. melanogaster larvae, glands from woc mutants cannot convert(More)
The neurosecretory activity of azadirachtin A-treated Locusta migratoria that failed to mature was compared with that of rapidly maturing control females by means of histological techniques. High resolution drymount autoradiography was used to localize [22,23-3H2]dihydroazadirachtin A in the brain and corpus cardiacum (CC). The neurosecretory system of the(More)
The present study is a summary of the current level of the insecticide resistance to selected organophosphates, pyrethroids, and neonicotinoids in seven Indian field populations of Bemisia tabaci genetic groups Asia-I, Asia-II-1, and Asia-II-7. Susceptibility of these populations was varied with Asia-II-7 being the most susceptible, while Asia-I and(More)
The role of cytochrome P450 monooxygenase in pyrethroid resistance was studied in different strains of the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, from India. Filed collected strains of Nagpur and Delhi were compared to the laboratory reared population. The results showed a high resistance to deltamethrin, α-cypermethrin, and β-cyfluthrin. The results also(More)
The effect of two insect growth regulators of plant origin viz. plumbagin and azadirachtin and the ecdysteroids 20-hydroxyecdysone, makisterone A and a phytoecdysteroid on DNA synthesis in imaginal wing discs of day 4 final instarHelicoverpa armigera larvae was studied. DNA synthesis increased with increase in time of incubation up to 8 h and decreased(More)
In the present study, 11 varieties of Dolichos biflorus exhibited both protease inhibitor activities as well as in vitro inhibitory activity against Helicoverpa armigera gut protease. A Bowman–Birk protease inhibitor showing activity against trypsin and α-chymotrypsin has been purified from D. biflorus seeds using multi-step strategy. The purified inhibitor(More)
