The chemical and biological properties of methoxyfenozide, a new insecticidal ecdysteroid agonist.
TLDR
Evidence collected to date indicates that methoxyfenozide has an excellent margin of safety to non-target organisms, including a wide range of non- target and beneficial insects.
Laboratory studies to assess the risk of development of resistance to zoxamide.
TLDR
The studies suggest that the risk of a highly resistant pathogen population developing rapidly in the field is much lower for zoxamide than for metalaxyl, but as with any site-specific fungicide, appropriate precautions against resistance development should be taken.
RH 5849, a Nonsteroidal Ecdysone Agonist: Effects on Larval Lepidoptera.
TLDR
RH 5849 and its analogs are relatively persistent ecdysone agonists that halt feeding in larval lepidoptera by forcing an ultimately lethal, developmentally premature molt.
Novel Fungitoxicity Assays for Inhibition of Germination-Associated Adhesion of Botrytis cinerea and Puccinia recondita Spores
TLDR
Assays for inhibition of spore adhesion in 96-well microtiter plates by using sulforhodamine B staining to quantify the adherent spores provide a rapid, high-throughput alternative to traditional spore germination assays and may be applicable to other fungi.
Identification of ceramide-phosphorylethanolamine in Oomycete plant pathogens: Pythium ultimum, phytophthora infestans, and Phytophthora capsici
Cellular lipids were extracted from three species of Oomycete plant pathogens (Pythium ultimum, Phytophthora infestans, and Ph. capsici) and analyzed via normal-phase high-performance liquid
Mode of Action of Zoxamide (RH-7281), a New Oomycete Fungicide
TLDR
It is concluded that the fungitoxic mechanism of RH-7281 involves inhibition of nuclear division as the result of covalent binding to β-tubulin and disruption of the microtubule cytoskeleton.
