Journal Highlights

Insecticides in Insect Cell Cultures and Larvae of Spodoptera In a first series of experiments, the biological response of a continuous cell line of the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua, was tested with different groups of insecticides with different modes of actions: acetylcholine esterase inhibitors, acetycholine receptor agonists, inhibitors and uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation, site I electron transport inhibitors, GABA receptor inhibitors, chitin synthesis inhibitors and juvenile hormone analogs. From the concentration response curves, IC50’s were calculated. The most active compound in vitro was pyridaben with an IC50 of 0.0083 ppm. In a second series of experiments, the toxicity of...
