Treatment of potato leaf disks with fourneo-clerodane diterpenes fromTeucrium (eriocephalin, teucrin-A, teucvin, and teuscorolide) significantly reduced feeding by larvae ofLeptinotarsa decemlineata (Colorado potato beetle). Choice and no-choice tests suggest that teuscorolide acts as a feeding deterrent, whereas the antifeedant activity of teucrin-A, teucvin, and eriocephalin is likely associated with a toxic mode of action. Nutritional tests, antifeedant simulation assays, and posttreatment… CONTINUE READING
