High-throughput detection of knockdown resistance in Myzus persicae using allelic discriminating quantitative PCR.

Abstract

The peach-potato aphid Myzus persicae (Sulzer) has developed resistance to pyrethroid insecticides as a result of a mechanism conferring reduced nervous system sensitivity, termed knockdown resistance (kdr). This reduced sensitivity is caused by two mutations, L1014F (kdr) and M918T (super-kdr), in the para-type voltage-gated sodium channel. We have… (More)
