Malathion resistance has been shown to be the result of a single point mutation in the LcαE7 gene in four independently isolated chromosomes of Lucilia cuprina. The resultant amino acid substitution specifies high malathion carboxylesterase (MCE) activity. We have assayed MCE activities and resistance to malathion in three sets of field-derived samples, two sets of isogenic lines and five mass populations, and show that resistance to malathion in these samples is associated with high MCE… CONTINUE READING
