Insecticidal effects of 4‐hexylresorcinol, a phenoloxidase (PO) inhibitor, were determined on Hyphantria cunea (Drury) under laboratory conditions. The LC50 for the 15‐d‐old larvae was estimated to be 2.95 g/L after 96 h exposure. The activities of glutathione S‐transferase (GST) and PO showed a decrease in larvae treated with 4‐hexylresorcinol, and the IC50 of GST and PO were estimated to be 0.8 and 0.43 g/L, respectively, 24 h after treatment. The PO from the hemolymph of fall webworm was… 
Characterization and inhibition studies of hemolymph phenoloxidase from Dociostaurus maroccanus
Biochemical characterization of PO, as one of the most important enzymes in immune system of insect, is essential for achieving new and safe methods for pest control.

Results in the present study may probably offer a fundamental anchor for future alternative strategies in controlling R. ferrugineus via obstructing its innate defence mechanisms.
Synthesis, structural revision, and tyrosinase inhibitory activity of proposed phloretin-4-O-β-D-glucopyranoside from Homalium stenophyllum
The enantiomeric analogues 1 and 2 were proved to be unique tyrosinase inhibitors due to the chiral recognition from the tyros inase active site.
Structural and biochemical assessment of the molecular binding of hexylresorcinol to insect immune phenoloxidase: A quest for a new insecticidal activity
The molecular bases of the usefulness of hexylresorcinol as a promising insecticide are demonstrated, and biochemical in vitro assays confirmed the behavior of 4‐Hr as substrate‐analog when binding to the active site of the insect PO leading to its competitive inhibition.
Tyrosinase Inhibition by 4-Substituted Benzaldehydes with Electron-Withdrawing Groups
The inhibition kinetics were analyzed by Dixon plots, which indicated that a series of 4-hallogenated benzaldehydes acted as partial noncompetitive inhibitors in the same manner as benzaldehyde and that the steric factor at the 4-position triggered the alternation between partial or full tyrosinase inhibition irrespective of electronic or hydrophobic effects.
Cloning and Expression of cry9Ea10 Gene from Bacillus Thuringiensis Strain GZ2 Isolated from Infected Hyphantria Cunea Larvae
The bioassay results showed that GZ2 had insecticidal activity to H.cunea larvae and Cry9Ea10 protein produced by Bt engineeringstrain exhibited a high toxicity to H-cuneal arvae.
Current status of the management of fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea: Towards the integrated pest management development
Believing in the contribution of an IPM to the established management strategies, the chemical, biological, natural enemy, sex pheromone, and molecular studies regarding this insect were reviewed and potential future research areas were delineated in this review study.


Enzymatic properties of phenoloxidase from Pieris rapae (Lepidoptera) larvae
The kinetic parameters of partially purified phenoloxidase (PO, EC. from the 5th instar larvae of Pieris rapae (Lepidoptera) were determined, using L‐3, 4‐dihydroxyphenylalanine (L‐DOPA)
Insecticidal effects of 4-hexylresorcinol on the lesser mulberry snout moth, Glyphodes pyloalis Walker
4-hexylresorcinol is bioassayed against the Glyphodes pyloalis Walker, an important pest of mulberry trees in north of Iran and this pest interferes with the sericulture by feeding on mulberry leaves.

Inhibitory Effects of Hexylresorcinol and Dodecylresorcinol on Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) Tyrosinase
The results show that hexylresorcinol and dodecylresOrcinol can inhibit both monophenol enzyme and diphenolase activity of the enzyme, and the steady-state activity of this enzyme decreased sharply.
