Publisher Summary This chapter highlights some of the recent and important findings obtained from studies conducted on the synthesis, structure, physical state, modification, organization, and degradation of chitin in insect tissues, as well as the interplay of chitin with chitin-binding proteins, the regulation of genes responsible for chitin metabolism, and, finally, the targeting of chitin metabolism for insect-control purposes. Chitin is the major polysaccharide present in insects and many… CONTINUE READING
