Some of the resistance of Helicoverpa armigera to conventional insecticides such as organophosphates and synthetic pyrethroids appears to be due to metabolic detoxification by carboxylesterases. To investigate the H. armigera carboxyl/cholinesterases, we created a data set of 39 putative paralogous H. armigera carboxyl/cholinesterase sequences from cDNA libraries and other sources. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a close relationship between these sequences and 70 carboxyl/cholinesterases from… CONTINUE READING
