To meet the requirements of population green revolution has started which results in the use of toxic chemicals and insects too gained resistance to overcome these toxic substances. Continuous use of those toxic substances in turn results in the degradation of environment. To overcome those difficulties, strategies were approached based on integrated pest management which includes the characteristics of insect specific, non toxic, compatible with other insect control agents, etc. Initially to…

Insect Neuropeptides and their Potential Application for Pest Control
TLDR
The ultimate aim of these researchers is, however, not the total eradication of harmful insects, but rather, selective targeting by using species- or group-specific control strategies which can only be achieved by taking note of recent results in insect physiology, endocrinology, biochemistry and ecology.

TLDR
A new integrated approach to the generation of a novel type of insect neuropeptide (Np) antagonists and putative insect control agents based on conformationally constrained compounds is described.
Rationally designed neuropeptide antagonists: A novel approach for generation of environmentally friendly insecticides
TLDR
The BBC-NBA approach was applied to PBAN and led to the discovery of a potent linear lead antagonist and a potent backbone cyclic antagonist devoid of agnoistic activity which inhibited sex pheromone biosynthesis inHeliothis peltigera female moths.
Eco-Friendly Insecticide Discovery via Peptidomimetics: Design, Synthesis, and Aphicidal Activity of Novel Insect Kinin Analogues.
TLDR
The results showed that all of the analogues exhibited aphicidal activity and suggested that the analogue II-1 could be used as a new lead for the discovery of potential eco-friendly insecticides.
Bioavailability of backbone cyclic PK/PBAN neuropeptide antagonists – inhibition of sex pheromone biosynthesis elicited by the natural mechanism in Heliothis peltigera females
TLDR
The present study is the first demonstration of the ability of topically applied PK/PBAN antagonists to inhibit sex pheromone biosynthesis elicited by the natural mechanism in female moths, and provides important information on the bioavailability of BBC peptides and the mechanism responsible for sex phersomone production in these insects.
Identification of an allatostatin from the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta.
TLDR
A peptide that strongly inhibits juvenile hormone biosynthesis in vitro by the corpora allata from fifth-stadium larvae and adult females has been purified from extracts of heads of pharate adult M. sexta by a nine-step purification procedure and has no sequence similarity with any known neuropeptide from other organisms.
